Background

  • The Greek myth of Theseus served as a major basis for the story, with Collins describing Katniss as a futuristic Theseus, and Roman gladiatorial games provided the framework.
  • Collins stated that the deaths of young characters and other "dark passages" were the most difficult parts of the book to write, but that she had accepted that passages such as these were necessary to the story

Themes

  • In an interview with Collins, it was noted that the novel "tackles issues like severe poverty, starvation, oppression, and the effects of war among others."
  • The novel deals with the struggle for self-preservation that the people of Panem face in their districts and the Hunger Games in which they must participate.
  • The citizens' starvation and their need for resources, both in and outside of the arena, create an atmosphere of helplessness that the main characters try to overcome in their fight for survival.

Complexity
  • The choices the characters make and the strategies they use are often morally complex.
