9780786470198: Of Bread, Blood and the Hunger Games: Critical Essays on the Suzanne Collins Trilogy (Critical Explorations in Science Fiction and Fantasy)

This collection of fresh essays on Suzanne Collins's epic trilogy spans multiple disciplines. The contributors probe the trilogy's meaning using theories grounded in historicism, feminism, humanism, queer theory, as well as cultural, political, and media studies. The essayists demonstrate diverse perspectives regarding Collins's novels but their works have three elements in common: an appreciation of the trilogy as literature, a belief in its permanent value, and a need to share both appreciation and belief with fellow readers. The 21 essays that follow the context-setting introduction are grouped into four parts: Part I "History, Politics, Economics, and Culture," Part II "Ethics, Aesthetics, and Identity," Part III "Resistance, Surveillance, and Simulacra," and Part IV "Thematic Parallels and Literary Traditions." A core bibliography of dystopian and postapocalyptic works is included, with emphasis on the young adult category--itself an increasingly crucial part of postmodern culture.

Descrizione libro McFarland & Co Inc. Paperback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Of Bread, Blood and the Hunger Games: Critical Essays on the Suzanne Collins Trilogy, Donald E. Palumbo, Mary F. Pharr, Leisa A. Clark, C. W. Sullivan, The World of The Hunger Games is an anthology of scholarly but accessible essays on Suzanne Collins's epic trilogy. Spanning multiple disciplines, its contributors probe the trilogy's meaning using theories grounded in historicism, feminism, humanism, queer theory, as well as cultural, political, and media studies. Although the contributors demonstrate diverse critical perspectives regarding Collins's novels, their work has three elements in common: an appreciation of the trilogy as literature, a belief in its permanent value, and a need to share both appreciation and belief with fellow readers. To that end, this anthology's introduction acknowledges the significance of the series as both young adult and trans-generational/trans-genre literature. The 21 essay-chapters that follow the introduction are grouped into four parts. Part I considers the trilogy in the context of "History, Politics, Economics, and Culture," while Part II interrogates "Ethics, Aesthetics, and Identity" within the novels. Part III examines issues of "Resistance, Surveillance, and Simulacra," while Part IV looks at some of the "Thematic Parallels and Literary Traditions" that readers can find in Collins's narratives. The anthology also includes a core bibliography of dystopian and postapocalyptic works, with emphasis on the young adult category--itself an increasingly crucial part of postmodern culture.
