Rising Action

Rising action is the action leading up to the climax. It is all of the
developments and events that set up the story. At the beginning of
The Hunger
Games

by Susan Collins,

Katniss’s little sister Prim, wa
s selected as the tribute for
District 12 for the Hunger Games, a fight to the death agains
t other children.
Katniss stepped

in for her,
a monumental move. This changed

the rest of the
story,

as from the
n on Katniss was dealing with the Games in one way or another.
Katniss rode

of
f

to the shining Capitol of their co
untry to prepare for the Games.


She tr
ained

there,
and started

to develop conflict with the second most important
character, Peeta.


Confl
ict: Character vs. Character

This conflict involves the tension between Peeta and Katniss. In the
beginning, Katniss thought he was kind and compassionate. Eventually, she
noticed he might be sucking up to her so that he could backstab and kill her
once
the Games began. Solidifying her hypothesis, Peeta announced to the pr
ess that
he was in love with his fellow District 12 tribute
.

Katniss
was sure at the time

h
e

was feigning,

only trying to get himself sponsors.


This may have been true at the time
and may not have, as things developed
differently later in the novel. At the time, Katniss was angry with him, and didn’t
trust him.

After their training,

Peeta and

Katniss were

dropped into an arena to
fight
other tributes for

their lives
. The entire event wa
s televised nationally

for the
entertainment of the country of Panem. You watch

week of brutal figh
ting in the arena, Katniss heard

tributes from the same district can both win the Hunge
r Games. Hearing this, she
knew that Peeta and she w
ould
reap mutual benefits by

team
ing

up.

She found

him and they agreed to work
together to win. As they heal
ed one another, got
food, and built

a friendship, they progress
ed

through the Hunger Games. More
tributes die
d around them. As they go
t to know each other better, they start
ed

falling in love. Thus,

the conflict betwee
n Katniss and Peeta was resolved for the
time being.

Conflict: Character vs.
Society

Throughout the novel, Katniss wa
s in conflict with the society around her.
She thinks about how the Hunger Games are not fair. She realizes that people

get
little
money in
some districts, unlike in the C
apitol and lower distric
ts.

There, the
population is

rich and
people
live easy lives. She
realizes and resists the injustice
of the situation. One small act of resistance occurs when Katniss showers Rue
with flowers upon her death. She is fighting to survive, essentially against
programs created by her evil society. So Katniss is constantly fighting against the
Capitol and the horrid government she has lived under all of her life. Even before
the Games
began she was fighting them every day, trying to provide her family
with food at age 16.

Conflict: Character vs. Fate

P

Katniss is constantly in conflict with her fate. This means that she is always
battling
death. Her will to survive is a huge part of
the story. Before the Games,
she hunts every day to keep herself alive. During the Games, she still must feed
herself from the land and she defends her life from other tributes with her bow
and arrow and strategy.


Katniss constantly battles death by ens
uring herself food,
water, and shelter. She often sleeps cleverly in trees and caves. Katniss uses
common sense and prior knowledge to keep herself alive.

Conflict: Character vs. Self

Katniss is always asking herself questions. So she is in conflict with

herself.
For
example, when she couldn’
t find Rue, she kept asking herself what to do and
how she should handle the situation.

When Katniss is in a tough spot

she always asks herself what to do and how to
solve the problem.

She brainstorms ideas in her head and often has trouble deciding between two
ideas. She also feels conflict in her emotions. She doesn’t know whether she
loves Peeta or if it is all for show.


Climax
:


The climax is the point in a story when all the main

conflict comes to the
point of highest intensity.
When Katniss and Pee
ta are left with just Cato
they are
the

final three tributes, they are forced together when the Gamemakers leave
them just one source of water. There
,

they see Cato running for his lif
e from
mutations of the other twenty
-
one tributes. They have been transformed into
horrifying
creatures
, and chase the remaining tributes

together. Cato

is

by the mutations. During the night, Katniss

and Peeta hear Cato

suffering at the
bottom of the Cornucopia.
The nasty beasts injured him badly.
Peeta tells Katniss
to end his suffering, and she
leans over the edge of the Cornucopia and
sho

s

him
dead
with her last arrow.

Then, the announcer of the Games says that t
he rules have been revised
again, and only one player can win the Games. Peeta and Katniss decide to kill
themselves at the same time by eating deadly berries. When the government
realizes this would defeat the purpose of the Games, they stop the rebels
from
suicide with a last second announcement


they are the winners of the Hunger
Games!

Victors!

Falling Action:

Falling action is the plot leading up to the resolution and after the climax. It
ties up loose ends in the story, and sets up the resolution.
Both victors are badly
injured. When they ge
t back to
the Capitol, they

take a

few days to recover. T
he
Capitol suspects that the two were trying to usurp some of th
eir power by the
double suicide.

This is a logical conclusion for them to come to


two young
revolutionaries ruining the Hunger Games and maki
ng the government look bad
by taking away the solidity of one concrete winner. To avoid punishment,
they
make sure to continue playing their love game. During

their live interview, they
still pretend to be

madly

in love
.

When Katniss presents the need
to keep
pretending to Peeta, he is confused. Apparently, he thinks they are actually
deeply in love, and feels that way.

Katniss
, however,

is
n’t sure how she feels
about Peeta.
She just knows that she is really excited to see Gale and her family.
