The Setting of “The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes”
Although it is the latest book in the series, the book is actually a prequel to the series. It takes place 64 years before the time of The Hunger Games. The events take place during a period after the civil war, known as Dark Days.
The Characters and the Plot:
Well, the major focus of the book is on Coriolanus Snow, who is just eighteen years old at the time of the story. The book opens on the morning of the tenth Hunger Games and Snow is waiting for his chance at glory as a mentor at these games. He is not participating, but if can make his mentee the winner, it will be as good as being the winner himself. But the path to glory is fraught with difficulties. After all, he has been given the assignment of tutoring and mentoring one of the weakest participants in the games – the female tribute from District 12. Will Snow be able to make sure he is able to win this one chance he has been given? Or has fate something else planned for him as well his mentee?
Suzanne Collins has said the following about her book on the Scholastic website’s press release:
“With this book, I wanted to explore the state of nature, who we are, and what we perceive is required for our survival. The reconstruction period ten years after the war, commonly referred to as the Dark Days—as the country of Panem struggles back to its feet—provides fertile ground for characters to grapple with these questions and thereby define their views of humanity.”
