A Classic Couple: Romeo & Juliet and The Hunger Games

Sometimes it seems as though everyone is birthed from the womb with an inherent knowledge of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. I have a feeling that a similar situation will happen with Suzanne Collins' novel The Hunger Games in a few generations. Just as the mention of Shakespeare's famous play immediately conjures up ideas of star-crossed lovers and family feuds, The… Continue reading A Classic Couple: Romeo & Juliet and The Hunger Games

Rue: The Real MVP of the Hunger Games

While rereading Suzanne Collins' novel The Hunger Games for my Introduction to Literature class, I couldn't help but notice that one character in particular is vastly undervalued and under-discussed. As the title of this post would suggest, this character is none other than Rue, the female tribute from District 11. She may be the youngest tribute in… Continue reading Rue: The Real MVP of the Hunger Games

THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins

I think that many readers-- myself included-- fall prey to the common misconception that there are two distinct categories of literature. The first of these categories could be considered "hard literature" (I don't know if these names already exist-- I'm completely making them up on the spot). These are the texts we are often forced… Continue reading THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins

Top Ten Tuesday: “Unclickable” Characters

Some characters just aren't meant to be your favorite fictional people. You know the characters I'm referring to- the ones that eh, you could do without. For some reason (or many reasons) you and them don't see eye to eye. We've all experienced this, and it's not a huge issue if they're side characters. But… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: “Unclickable” Characters
