Culture of life and culture of death are the two indispensable perceptions that shape culture by the human condition of being mortal. The ever-together couple life and death are portrayed in all genres of literature which replicate reality. In the classical period, playwrights had their own limits in the extensive exhibition of violent scenes like death, murder, and brutal occurrences on the battlefield. Such scenes were reported off stage with the assistance of the chorus. Modern literature has proved that it has no boundary line to be strictly adhered. It enters every nook and corner of human life like before birth, after birth and after death too. The present paper deals with how death of many brings laurels and freedom to one in the light of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games. The novel is centred on a teenage girl called Katniss Everdeen who volunteers to partake in the great 'The Hunger Games' so as to ensure her sister's safety. The novelist has identified a distinct culture of death through the event that keeps her young adult readers under spell.
