As we continue to find connections to the Heart of Darkness, The Hunger Games draws many comparisons with the novel. While looking at the story through Marlow’s view of women, the “perfect world” he insists women must stay in, in order to stay ignorant to the darkness in the Congo, can be portrayed through the Capitol. Europe, where people only hear sensored stories about the quest for ivory through the media, is represented by the Capitol, and the Congo, where the darkness occurs, is represented by the outer districts of Panem. The “heart of darkness” is represented by the deaths of young teenagers in the Hunger Games, The river, with the three stations can be viewed as: station 1) The district reaping. Station 2: the training center and pre-games ceremonies. Station 3: the arena.
