Inspiration and Themes

In a statement, Suzanne Collins shared her inspiration for the new novel, drawing from the works of Scottish Enlightenment philosopher David Hume. “With ‘Sunrise on the Reaping,’ I was inspired by David Hume’s idea of implicit submission and, in his words, ‘the easiness with which the many are governed by the few,'” Collins explained. She emphasized the novel’s focus on propaganda and narrative control, relating it to modern-day issues. “The question ‘Real or not real?’ seems more pressing to me every day,” she added.
