Quote by Suzanne Collins: “I volunteer !” I gasp. “I volunteer as tribute !”
On Tributize, when we talk about ‘Paying Tribute ‘ we mean giving thanks, showing respect and paying homage to the important people in our lives – and you don’t need to fight to the death to do that.
“Happy Hunger Games ! And may the odds be ever in your favor.” “Destroying things is much easier than making them.” Here is the place where I love you.”
As a tribute to Katniss , the audience members hold their three middle fingers of their left hand to their lips and then hold them out to Katniss , a District 12 gesture that shows admiration, thanks, and goodbye to someone they love.
“I volunteer as tribute !” At the outset of Chapter 2, just after Prim has been selected in the reaping, Katniss volunteers to serve as the female tribute for District 12 in the Hunger Games.
Someone is making a fire , something that will surely lure other tributes to their camp. Katniss is angry with the fire starter for being so ignorant and for endangering both of their lives. Soon enough, a pack of the Career Tributes who have formed an alliance finds the girl camped out near Katniss and kills her.
A volunteer is someone who does work without being paid for it, because they want to do it. A volunteer is someone who offers to do a particular task or job without being forced to do it.
A tribute is a sign of respect or admiration, an award to honor a person’s accomplishments. We’re most familiar with the use of the word tribute meaning to honor someone with words or an award. You can hear a tribute if you’re lucky enough to attend an entertainment awards ceremony, or need to attend a funeral.
Tributes are residents of the 12 districts of Panem who are forced/volunteered to participate in an annual Hunger Games. Except in special cases, such as for Quarter Quells, twenty-four children between the ages of 12 and 18 are chosen at random. Every district must give two tributes , a girl and a boy.
At the reaping for the 74th Hunger Games, Prim is chosen by lottery as the female ” tribute ” from District 12 . Katniss volunteers to take her place. Before Katniss leaves for the Capitol, Prim makes her promise to try hard to win the Games.
Quote by Suzanne Collins : “Destroying things is much easier than making them.”
Well, the main source of power in The Hunger Games is clear: the totalitarian government of the Capitol . Because the Capitol holds most of the country of Panem’s wealth, the government there is able to control the people in all of the districts across Panem.
Cite specific evidence from the text to support your response.In chapter 2, Katniss is surprised when Prim gets chosen because in chapter1 she was rest assured about Prim not getting chosen .
Her husband died in a coal mining accident five years before the events of The Hunger Games book. She also has two grandchildren, an elder girl and younger boy, from Katniss and Peeta. Primrose died in Mockingjay, leaving Mrs. Everdeen unable to go back to District 12 due to the pain of her death.
When Katniss volunteered to take her twelve year old sister’s place when her name was pulled during the 74th Hunger Games reaping, the audience remained silent and Effie was left on stage clapping by herself in an effort to lighten the atmosphere. Effie lives in the Capitol, and remains there for most of the year.
