How Do Ancient Legends Impact Today’s Literature?

Greek mythology tells us about Tributes, the Minotaur and a volunteer Tribute named Theseus. All of this has interesting parallels to a 21st-century story called “The Hunger Games.”

If we apply the Greek legend of Theseus and the Minotaur to “The Hunger Games,” who is the Theseus character?  Who (or what) is the Minotaur?  Explain your answers.

Can you think of any situation in which a government would be justified in sponsoring an event like the Hunger Games?  

Under what circumstances, if any, would such government actions be acceptable?
