This thesis discusses The Hunger Games trilogy and film series as gynocentric, motivation driven narratives. For that purpose, the motivation driven narrative is defined and introduced as an opposing end to the androcentric and consequentialist, goal-oriented narrative predominant in Western culture. While the canonic story, the most prevalent goal-oriented narrative in Western culture, tends to feature a male protagonist with an initially determined goal, and it prefers to conclude the narrative in a happy ending focusing on heterosexual romance, the Hunger Games texts presents what is determined as the motivation driven narrative; a female protagonist that is most dominantly urged by her motivation of care instead of relying on a definite goal that would resolve at the end of the narrative. Additionally, the ending of the motivation driven narrative, as well as, of the Hunger Games texts, seem to move away from the preferred ending of the canonic story. Instead of focusing on the unification of the female and male heroes, the ending of the trilogy is discussed to demonstrate Katniss’s conscious motivation driven choice of helping Peeta become a new person that will additionally allow them to grow together. In case of the film adaptation, an ending transgressing from the idea of the unification of the couple is similarly observable, with shifting the focus from a romantic union between Katniss and Peeta to a union between Katniss and children. Through scrutinizing the smaller narratives and the meta-narratives appearing in the Hunger Games texts, this thesis aims to determine the orientation of the texts to be dominantly deontologist and motivation driven. The significance of proving such popular texts to be motivation driven lies also in the gendered aspect of the Hunger Games texts featuring Katniss Everdeen, a female protagonist, which aids the designation of the narratives to be gynocentric motivation driven texts. The Hunger Games trilogy and film series, therefore, can be considered as inspirational works illustrating the dawn of a time positively welcoming gynocentric motivation driven narratives.
