Example text

It’s to the Capitol’s advantage to have us divided among ourselves,” he might say if there were no ears to hear but mine. If it wasn’t reaping day. THG14 Gale is not wrong. Taking Katniss’ perceptions of Panem at face value, there is a distinct social class missing from the nation: a middle class. There are those living in abject, starving, governmentallysanctioned-physical-aid-dependent poverty—which does include the merchant class, because though they take fewer tesserae, they are still 48 THElPANEMlCOMPANION required to put their names once into the reaping—and those who live in absurd, Gilded-Age-and-then-some levels of wealth in the Capitol.

Because the Hunger Games is written from the perspective of a first-person narrator, the only perspective that we get on Panem in the books is that of Katniss, who lives in District 12 and knows—or at least conveys—very little about the demographics or make-up of other districts, sometimes even leaving out their specialties. However, given the Capitol’s heavily structured hierarchy of control, the assumption that all of the districts were originally formed with similar basic planning doesn’t seem unwarranted; using District 12 as a model is the most reliable way to extrapolate information about Panem as a whole.

Gale, who is eighteen and has been either helping or single-handedly feeding a family of five for seven years, will have his name in forty-two times. You can see why someone like Madge, who has never been at risk of needing a tessera, can set him off. THG13 47 THElSOCIOECONOMICSlOFlTESSERAE The division that this causes in Panem society between the merchant class—the “haves”—and the specialty classes—the “have-nots”—is clear from Gale, Katniss, and Madge’s early conversation about the impending seventy-fourth reaping ceremony.
