Suzanne Collins Talks Classical Influences and Much More

Suzanne Collins is the author of the worldwide phenomenon that is The Hunger Game Trilogy. Here, she reveals her surprisingly classical inspiration for the story.

“Probably the first inspiration for ‘The Hunger Games‘ came from the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur,” says Suzanne Collins in the first of her ten-part interview with Scholastic. “When I was a child I was a fanatic about Greek mythology, and this was one of my favourite myths.”

Collins may have wrapped up her worldwide phenomenon with Mockingjay a couple of years ago, but thanks to the movies, her story is more popular now than ever before. Here, she talks about what inspired her, the most difficult part about writing the books and how she planned the trilogy.

  2. Bra tips Micke och även om man lägger en produkt i olika kategorier kan alla leda till samma produktsida, vilket google inte borde ha problem med. Ett sökresultat och en kategori är exempelvis två olika vägar till samma produkt.
