Thus, The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins and A Clockwork Orange, by Anthony Burgess are novels that evaluate the unsustainable characteristics of youthful rebellion as a movement meant to defend one’s individual control over the self. Initially, through their acts of defiance against the state and dominant role within their families, both Katniss and Alex appear as independent authorities. However, it is by accessing the tension between character personas and social change, as well as recurring patterns of institutionalization, that these insinuated notions of free will become definitively unsound. As such, it is through this transition in perspective, that the two works fundamentally act as a complex analysis on the nature of identity.
