Question description

The Hunger Games presents an interesting moment in the history and evolution of young adult literature. Prior to its publication, some of the major young adult series included Harry Potter and Twilight, both of which featured magical or supernatural elements. Although The Hunger Games is set in a dystopian future, much of the actual violence is realistic in that it could be replicated by readers or viewers (shooting with arrows, cutting with knives, etc.).

With this distinction in mind, write a 500-600 word paper examining how the shift from books within the fantasy genre to gritty and realistic impacts the reactions that younger readers will have to the readings. To help clarify and deepen your understanding, you must include two outside sources discussing either The Hunger Games specifically or trends in contemporary young adult literature that include The Hunger Games.

you should focus on the impact that the text has had on the young adult genre in general, including an evaluation of our understanding of what is deemed “appropriate” for children.

catastrophe, civilization named the Panem rises from the remnants (Ebert, 2012). The way the

2014). The serious realistic novels were created generally for the male adult readers, while the
romance and the fantasy novels were created for the readership of the children and the women.
The gendered fantasy perception has changed gradually in the present world becoming an
interesting area of thought since in the present-day young men are not associated with fantasy as
they were before (Flanagan, 2014). Fantasy’s writing has been perceived to be associated with
particular culture...
