The Hunger Games is a riveting trilogy and a widely popular work among young adults. Though set in the dystopian future, Suzanne Collins’s series taps into themes such as freedom, oppression, hope, and self-sacrifice that are very much relevant today. The gladiatorial-like combat and ubiquitous allusions to the ancient Roman Empire, moreover, suggests the series is equally about the past and the trajectory of Western civilization. Given this, the major thematic concerns of the work are taken up and analyzed in relation to the Biblical narrative.
