In order to present a clearly articulated thesis, you are going to read Hunger Games and choose direct evidence from the primary text to support your ideas.
The essay should have a very strong and clear thesis which can be argued about, and there is no limit of number of arguments.
**Keep in mind that you need to focus on the novel’s rhetorical situation–i.e. the complex relationship between the audience for these books (young adults), the text(specifically in terms of genre), the historical/cultural context(what this novel reveals about our current world), and/or the rhetor(Suzanne Collins). Your essay may focus on on all of these rhetorical domains.**
