Creator Fakhruddin, Rohmat Anang
Subject Katniss Everdeen; monomyth cycle; Catching Fire novel
Description This  research  aims  to reveal  the  journey  of  Katniss  Everdeen  by using monomyth cycle in Suzanne Collins’ novel Catching  Fire (2009).  This research used  the  literary criticism that employs the monomyth cycle of Joseph  Campbell. The monomyth theory was used to explore Katniss’ heroic journey within the novel Catching Fire.  All data were classified into the following stages of monomyth cycle: departure, initiation, and return. Each stage represented the development of Katniss’s traits during her journey. From the analysis, it was discovered that Katniss began her journey by adapting herself in Victor’s Village after winning the 74th Hunger Games. She began her journey after President Snow provided her a challenge to convince him to reduce the uprising acts in each District. She refused to return home since she must rescue Peeta. Therefore, this paper concludes that this novel can be a continuity step of Katniss’ Journey for transforming herself to be a heroine at the end of her Journey.
