A book widens our imagination by taking us to new places and different situations and offers us the meaning of life from someone else’s eyes through the literary devices. Truly indeed, it renders us astonishing plots with heart-warming themes that eternally breathe to touch human spirit. Thus, it leads us to observe society from afar and lives of other people at other times and deepens our understanding of history, arts and culture across nations generations ago.
In its widest sense, a great book has the power to awaken in us a lively sense of pleasure and quickens our love for beauty, truth or goodness and therefore, it moves us to generous thoughts and noble actions. Within the same context, the dystopian contemporary novel written by Suzanne Collins The Hunger Games Trilogy contains comprehensive course of life that provides lesson on literature and philosophy. It explores human values interspersing psychological, moral and social elements that Collins enchants the readers by casting spell of her unbounded imagination.
In its similar context, another writer brings to life a new philosophy which has semblance to the aforementioned book series…. Veronica Roth penned a utopian society….which is somehow opposite of a dystopian society…. while Katniss is a heroine in a dystopian society, Beatrice is also the same in a utopian society.
Both of them are leaders and mobilizes others to act and stand for a what they believe in.
Matter-of-factly, they are super women but not necessarily a superhero. They are humans and like all people, have faults, limitations and imperfections just like the rest of us. Heroism per se means standing up for the values we believe in. It is about willingness to make the hard choices and going down a path that is the road less travelled in order to have a redeemed society. Truly so, we need to salute strong female character……
