The concept of the mechanism of power in Suzanne Collin’s trilogy the hunger games

Author(s):

Ainaab Tariq and Dr. Suresh Kumar

Abstract:

The notion of the mechanism of power is analyzed in Suzanne Collin’s trilogy The Hunger Games in this paper. The author takes an analytical approach to how power is exercised, a measure that contributes in the establishment of a theory of power relations that impact people's lives, mindset, politics, and even the economy. According to Collins, power is the core, if not the elixir of life, on which the authoritarian regime led by President Snow's existence is premised. The paper goes on to explain why it is important to retain power in place in order to keep the government in power. The novel's power mechanism works on a lot of different levels. Divide and rule is the first and most significant dividing tactic, aimed at eliminating any possible unity among people who may use that unity to revolt against the totalitarian regime.
