While I’ve got it on the brain, here’s an excellent Hunger Games illustration by R. Kikuo Johnson, 2010.
That said, the New Yorker article this accompanied really rubbed me the wrong way.
If, on the other hand, you consider the [Hunger Games] as a fever-dream allegory of the adolescent social experience, they become perfectly intelligible. Adults dump teen-agers into the viper pit of high school, spouting a lot of sentimental drivel about what a wonderful stage of life it’s supposed to be. The rules are arbitrary, unfathomable, and subject to sudden change… Adults don’t seem to understand how high the stakes are; your whole life could be over, and they act like it’s just some “phase”!
Yeah, idiot. We live in a world of child soldiers, mass starvation, and land mines that are still hiding in the ground after half a century, and The Hunger Games is about high school. Idiot.
