We are trying to make this a huge website with millions of books. This choice of location is important for several reasons. It separates the Ninth Grade children spatially from the rest of their authoritarian society, but the island as a location also carries with it many important mythical and literary connotations. For many cen- turies, Greeks and Romans associated islands with good and evil, as John Gillis argues.
As he was nurtured on these Greek and Roman myths and legends, Christopher Columbus was prepared to find par- adise and hell equally on the islands he would encounter in the New World. The first modern fictional hero, Robinson Crusoe, made his appearance on an island, and for a while in literature islands were the prized possessions of colonial powers, the island peoples considered to be the nearest thing to the first peoples of the world Gillis As symbols of innocence and nostalgia, islands were in turn associated with children, a notion that took firm hold of the Western imagina- tion.
In dramatic contrast to their predecessors, their islands become sites of evil and barbarism, as the children turn on each other in their primal need for survival. In both texts, gone is the asso- ciation of nature—and islands, more specifically—with nostalgia and 8 Alison Halsall innocence. Instead, the islands on which the children are either mar- ooned or imprisoned emphasize the complex brutality and even down- right sadism of young people, especially once they find themselves away from the trappings of civilization or are unleashed as human weapons by adults to kill one another.
John Gillis goes on to argue that such islanding is part of a larger cultural process that has more to do with the ways adults think about childhood.
Thus, metaphorical islands allow adults the ability to preserve a nostalgic vision of childhood as a time of innocence. Each year 1, Ninth Grade students are shipped off to a deadly island by adults, a location that then becomes a battlefield on which war is waged on innocence by the very children of the regime itself.
All of this is done to discourage insubordination in the Repub- lic.
In The Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins also interrogates the association of nature with childhood. Katniss learns from her father how to make the most of the woods, and this Space in Collins and Takami 9 knowledge saves the family after his death, as the girls learn to sup- port themselves.
Over the years, they learn to trade the animals that they shoot in the woods and the herbs that they gather from the forest floor for food or supplies, and in this way Katniss and Gale find a way to keep body and soul together for their families. The woods offer not just beauty and a means of suste- nance but also freedom, both physical and ideological.
Finally alone, Katniss and Gale can be whomever they want and talk about what- ever they want Fire The woods thus offer them hope and a sense of possibility of living outside the restrictions imposed by the Capi- tol.
The happiness and freedom that Katniss associates with the woods continue throughout the trilogy. This relationship with nature is important for Katniss. For Katniss, nature is sustenance: her hunting and gathering skills strengthen and prepare her body and mind in ways that some of the other tributes lack in the arena.
And the skills she learns in the woods translate to the Games: she learns to find food in the arena, setting traps to catch prey, finding water, and scavenging berries and bark; she finds temporary rest in the trees; she employs her knowl- edge of the herbs growing in the arena to heal burns or blisters. Sure enough, that tangential relationship with nature proves fatal for the Capitol: while Katniss exploits all of what nature has to offer, the inhabitants of the Capitol are left helpless and vulnerable once the districts rebel and stop sup- plying them with food.
Habi- tus allows them to do this. Habitus consists of the faces, places, and spaces that mark a child.
Cover and Details of The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins (PDF)
Habitus is initially and primarily formed in the home, which is both a physical place and, perhaps more impor- tantly, a space that consists of the people who live within and around it whose thoughts and values help to shape a child As one might expect, different access to capital leads to different experiences of habitus in childhood Bour- dieu Thus, habitus, although first formed within the family and the spatial realm of home, is in turn shaped by the institutional structuring of the various fields of play: school and work, for example Cregan and Cuthbert School, however, does not shape habitus, per se.
For Bourdieu it is a field of play. A child in turn acquires symbolic capital, which is the pres- tige s he develops in terms of how well s he plays the game of social interaction. Transported to the abandoned island, the Ninth Grade children in Battle Royale all bring with them the habitus they formed with their families, biological or extended.
Their interactions with home and school, the spaces and places associated with childhood, have affected 12 Alison Halsall their habitus, as all of their backstories demonstrate in the novel.
Interestingly, the children who last the longest in the game are resourceful and transform all that the island can provide into shelters, medicines, or weapons.
The principal protagonist, Shuya Nanahara, shares with Katniss Everdeen great cultural capital that allows him to succeed in the Pro- gram.
Shuya is a legend of sorts to all of the children in his class and peer group, even though he does not know it. Orphaned at a young age, Shuya went to live in the House of Mercy and Love, a Catholic institution for children who have lost or who are no longer allowed to live with their parents. The extended kin- ship relations he developed there with his teachers and other orphans like Yoshitoki Kuninobu in turn shaped this individual of high integrity, who manages so successfully to transform the killing fields into a game of strategy and political rebellion.
A third student, Shogo Kawada joins them, eventually. In spite of the vicious murders that occur around them, Shuya, Noriko, and Kawada depend upon their habitus for survival. Shuya, thanks to his natural athletic skills, is surprisingly adept at killing his peers, although only out of dire need to defend his team.
Kawada shows them how to establish a primitive alarm system around their temporary hideouts, which allows them to relax between the killing sprees. Learned it turns out from his expe- riences in the Program the previous year, Kawada demonstrates great resourcefulness, acquiring cigarettes, strings, weapons, even medical supplies. Most importantly, Kawada teaches Shuya and Noriko to be merciless, having learned this important lesson previously — Integrity and the resourcefulness learned in childhood allow this principal protagonist to succeed.
Her childhood spaces—home, woods, and mine—shape the autonomous child that she becomes. Her experiences of starvation and parental neglect intimately affect her habitus and her lived rela- tionships with the spaces around her.
Interestingly, however, part of the conflict in the Hunger Games centers on Katniss having to demonstrate a habitus that is more appealing to viewers watching in the Capitol. Although Katniss undoubtedly possesses the cultural and symbolic capital required to succeed in District 12, she is ill-prepared and ill-equipped to cope with a shift into the habitus of another class once she becomes a tribute.
Her habitus does not prepare her for exposure to the cultural and social expectations of the Capitol, and, in fact, her lack of finesse is often a source of mockery for Haymitch Abernathy, her mentor, and frustration for her prep team. It comes as much of a surprise to Katniss as it does to her prep 14 Alison Halsall team, to Effie Trinket and Haymitch, that the great cultural capital that she formed initially in District 12, her leadership role in the community, and her unwavering loyalty to District 12 serve to inspire her people and all of Panem, even the Capitol.
In effect, her habitus enhances her symbolic capital, so much so that Katniss becomes extremely threatening to President Snow and to the stability of his authoritarian regime.
Ironically, the game arenas in The Hunger Games and Battle Royale become spaces prescribed by adults that are the most malleable for these child characters. Adults certainly create and oversee the arena and the island as battlegrounds for the child tributes, wherein the tributes live out their roles as property of the Capitol or the Republic, as the trackers implanted in their arms or the metal collars fastened around their necks constantly remind them. And, in fact, the immediate removal of the tributes to the arena after the Reaping pro- cess and the kidnapping and gassing of the children on the bus call attention to the fact that the Capitol and the Republic respectively initially exert total power over these children.
Importantly, however, these spaces and places supposedly controlled and overseen by the adult game-makers of the Capitol and the Republic become sites of agency, refuge, subversion, and counterculture. In their forced adapta- tion to life in the arena or on the island, the children appropriate existing spaces and in fact create new spaces for their own purposes, spaces that become central to the development of their autonomy, integrity, and personal identity from within the parameters of the adult-created game world.

In this important moment, Katniss begins to think offensively, assuring her survival in the process. Katniss even manages to transform the hellish arena into a temporary home. These special places, often unknown to adults, become imbued with power because they are uniquely created by young people.
Katniss is always one step ahead of the game. Although before the Games Katniss developed all kinds of strategies to avoid the gaze of the Capitol, as soon as she is selected, she realizes that she must change her stratagem: she learns to manipulate viewers to gain support and power for herself.
And in this ostensibly simple act of holding hands within the arena, Katniss and Peeta infuse friendship and love into a power dynamic that had never before been present in the Hunger Games. Later in the game, and fully aware of the practical value of kissing Peeta in the arena, Katniss plays the role of star- crossed lover to such perfection that Haymitch rewards this behavior with silver parachutes full of gifts.
Her subtle resistance of the Capitol and its demands first appears when she impulsively shrouds the dead tribute Rue in flowers. In this act of mourning, Katniss unwittingly transgresses the 16 Alison Halsall rules of engagement, redeploying the arena as a stage on which she silently reminds Panem that children are the senseless victims in a war that they had no role in starting. The mockingjay—and, by extension, Katniss herself—functions as a symbol of creation that has turned against its creators.
Arguably, her most subversive moment occurs at the end of her first Hunger Games when she and Peeta threaten to eat the nightlock berries and thus deprive the adult game-makers of their desired winner.
Although Katniss remains ignorant of the political significance of this act, President Snow reveals to her at the beginning of Catching Fire that this seemingly small act of rebellion unleashed a firestorm across Panem, threatening civic stability across the country. This conscious decision to outsmart the dictates of President Snow fuels her mental and physical prepara- tion for the Quarter Quell and motivates the unusual alliances she forms with Peeta, Finnick, Mags, Johanna, Beetee, and Wiress within the arena.

As the symbolic Mockingjay, Katniss escapes the bonds of President Snow, only to fall into the net cast by the rebels. Instead of executing Snow, as everyone assumed she would, Katniss shoots an arrow right into the heart of the leader of this new revolution Commander Coin , thereby inciting nothing short of a new world order.
The trio initially succeeds because they never assume that bonds of friendship or family count on the island.
Brought together by need, survival, and a desire to take revenge on the government, the trio strategizes, develops confi- dence and loyalty in one another, and retains its personal belief in the inherent goodness of humanity. Noriko convinces Shuya that fellow student Yoshio Akamatsu only killed his peer because he was driven by extreme terror and self-preservation.
Their habitus enables them to find a way to retain their optimism even in the killing fields. Ironi- cally, after winning and being hospitalized to recover from his many injuries sustained in the Program, Kawada spent that precious time reading up on the Republic of Greater East Asia.
Kawada employs this precious recovery time to locate the fatal fissures in the Republic that allow him to bring it down.Catching Fire The Hunger Games: Most of the districts have rebelled against the Capitol, led by District 13 and its President Alma Coin.
