?What was the inspiration behind the creation of this book??
The Hunger Games is not a success to millions without Suzanne Collins? inspiration in writing the trilogy. There are two aspects that influence the story arc itself, classical and contemporary elements, specifically. The Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur astonished Collins as a young reader, which was about how King Minos? son Androgeus was assassinated in Athens which led to a war that made the king of Athens Aegeus submit to his mercy. The reprisal of Minos was at the conclusion of every Great Year, which was seven solar years, seven brazen youths and seven most alluring maidens will be sent to Crete, and no one in Athens will ever see them again. Collins used the element of an all powerful and evil government to comprise the first aspect of The Hunger Games.
In the book, we will see the whole fictional country of Panem through a girl named Katniss Everdeen. Suzanne Collins took Theseus, as the prime inspiration for her heroine, who is one of the heroes in Greek Mythology. He volunteered to take on the monster Minotaur, where he sailed to Crete promising his father Aegeus for his return. Theseus succeeds, and he rescued young Athenians who are offered to the Minotaur. Theseus was a slave and then became a hero, where Katniss Everdeen was written with that outline
Don't miss out! It's highly recommended.
