"This book addresses Suzanne Collins's work from a number of literary and cultural perspectives in an effort to better understand both its significance and appeal. Assuming that readers are familiar with all three volumes of The Hunger Games, the book also avoids plot summary and character analysis, instead focusing on the significance of the story and its characters"--Provided by publisher.

Suzanne Collins' dystopian trilogy envisions a world where survival and violence quite literally take the center stage. To maintain order, suppress independence, and punish past rebellions, the Capitol selects two participants, or tributes, from each of the twelve districts to fight in an annual televised death match called the Hunger Games. This compelling edition explores Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games through the lens of violence. The book provides biographical information about the author and offers a perspective on her influences. A series of essays, which discuss aspects of the novel, focusing on Katniss, her struggles, and the meaning and impact of violence, allow readers to gain a greater insight into the intersection between social issues and literature.

For 21st-century young adults struggling for personal autonomy in a society that often demands compliance, the bestselling trilogy, The Hunger Games remains palpably relevant despite its futuristic setting. For Suzanne Collins' characters, personal agency involves not only the physical battle of controlling one's body but also one's response to such influences as morality, trauma, power and hope. The author explores personal agency through in-depth examinations of the lives of Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Haymitch, Cinna, Primrose, and others, and through an analysis of themes like the overabundance of bodily imagery, social expectations in the Capitol, and problem parental figures. Readers will discover their own "dandelion of hope" through the examples set out by Collins' characters, who prove over and over that human agency is always attainable.

Who hasn't asked: "What happens to me after I die?" and/or "Are we alone in the universe?" Other Worlds: UFOs, Aliens, and the Afterlife takes readers on a journey into other galaxies and into a different time--a time after all of their tomorrows. How are the societies organized on other planets and in the afterlife? This book answers this question with a new approach in the UFO and the Near-Death Experience fields. As readers take this trip, they will wonder if there are universal laws governing the societies of intelligent beings regardless of where they reside in existence. Are humans projecting into foreign forms their own beliefs about how societies should be arranged on Earth? Why study such ethereal and controversial material? We always learn about ourselves when we study those who are different from us, whether those beings are real or not. Anyone who has read a good book of fiction knows the validity of this point. Consider how many teenagers identify with the characters in the Hunger Games books. What follows is the sociological perspective. We will explore institutions, such as marriage and the family, social classes, and culture. We will determine the sex of alien travelers as well as the occupations of their human witnesses. We will learn what the afterlife looks like, and discover what messages deceased beings deliver to humans.

Bestsellers are the books that sell well, are read by large numbers of people, and are widely talked about in the media and among readers. Yet there has been little research on the creation, reception, and cultural and social significance of bestsellers. Recognizing that popular narratives play an important role in the lives of millions of readers, Hype – Bestsellers and Literary Culture looks closely at the literature so many people read. As global market phenomena, situated in between the power spheres of producers and consumers, bestsellers also highlight the interdependency of culture, market, and the individual. This volume addresses such diverse questions as the creation of hype, the role and the meaning of the author in the presentday media landscape, changes in the book trade, historical perspectives on bestselling literature, and the relationship between bestsellers and literary research.

Tell Freedom I Said Hello

Despite its popularity, the newest wave of dystopian narratives is often viewed as derivative and deficient. This collection proposes a different, more nuanced viewpoint, arguing that contemporary dystopian fiction changes and updates genre conventions to tackle controversial and contemporary issues in complex ways, such as environmental destruction (Julie Bertagna's 'Exodus' (2002), Sacci Lloyd's 'The Carbon Diaries: 2015/2017' (2009, 2010), Julianna Baggott's 'Pure' (2012)), the effects of bio-technological progress gone awry (Lauren DeStefano's 'Chemical Garden' trilogy (2011-2013), Karen Sandler's 'Tankborn' (2011)), or the consequences of war (Lauren Oliver's 'Delirium' (2011)). While the volume's first part collects essays that approach dystopia from a literary and cultural studies perspective, the second part explores the potential that texts such as Veronica Roth's 'Divergent' (2011), Suzanne Collin's 'The Hunger Games' (2008) or David Macaulay's graphic novel 'BAA' (1985) have for the EFL classroom.

So not your usual post-apocalyptic, clone vs. hybrid romance-adventure...fans of The Hunger Games looking for an authentic badass heroine will love Dr. Mina Brice in The Eaters trilogy. The Eaters is a character-driven, emotionally charged, action packed first person narrative trilogy, told by the strong but quirky woman protagonist, spanning 500 years, two galaxies, and three sentient species, bridging the genres of urban fantasy and sci-fi and appealing to women as well as men. Book Two: Return continues the story. You didn't really think things would stay the same, did you? For a while now, Mina has enjoyed domestic life in the peaceful city of Origin. For five years since the departure of the Travelers, Origin has known only peace and prosperity, and Mina's biggest challenge seems to be protecting her genius daughter Lula from the schoolyard gripes of resentful non-clone mothers. Adjusting to her newly found prominence, Mina has happily returned to her work with her team in the jungle. Five years on, the Director out-maneuvered, the scourge of the Eaters ended, and the Travelers gone, the city of Origin is once more peaceful and it seems that Mina's biggest problem is protecting her genius daughter Lulu from the vicious, suspicious schoolyard Super Moms while continuing her work in the jungle with bonobos and adjusting to her new-found prominence. But now it's Jack who's a little bit ... distracted. Mina suspects he's being unfaithful with his former Eater hunting partner, the sensuous, copper-haired Alyssa. But before Mina can get to the bottom of this new drama, parts of the world quite literally blow up. The Travelers take notice - and they're coming back! Mina is forced to face her enemy once more. But her battles are only beginning there. The Travelers' approach triggers a transformation in the former Eaters - returned to human form but still mistrusted and marginalized - into a "half-morph" state neither human nor Eater, further feeding the growing panic taking hold in the population. Now Mina has many battles on her hands - for Lulu's safety, for Jack's dignity, life, and love, for the political sanity of Origin, and for the survival of the planet. And once again fair is foul and foul is fair - and not everything is as it seems. You didn't really think things would stay the same, did you?

Young Adult literature, from The Outsiders to Harry Potter, has helped shape the cultural landscape for adolescents perhaps more than any other form of consumable media in the twentieth and twenty-first century. With the rise of mega blockbuster films based on these books in recent years, the young adult genre is being co-opted by curious adult readers and by Hollywood producers. However, while the genre may be getting more readers than ever before, Young Adult literature remains exclusionary and problematic: few titles feature historically marginalized individuals, the books present heteronormative perspectives, and gender stereotypes continue to persist. Taking a critical approach, Young Adult Literature: Challenging Genres offers educators, youth librarians, and students a set of strategies for unpacking, challenging, and transforming the assumptions of some of the genre's most popular titles. Pushing the genre forward, Antero Garcia builds on his experiences as a former high school teacher to offer strategies for integrating Young Adult literature in a contemporary critical pedagogy through the use of participatory media.
