The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is a prequel book to The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins.

With a young Coriolanus Snow as its protagonist, the novel is set in the world of Panem 64 years before the events of the original trilogy, on the morning of the reaping of the 10th Hunger Games.

The reconstruction period 10 years after the war, commonly referred to as the Dark Days, provides fertile ground for characters to grapple with these questions and thereby define their views of humanity.

...I keep wishing I could think of a way to... to show the Capitol they don't own me. That I'm more than just a piece in their Games.

"I volunteer! I volunteer as tribute!"
―Katniss at the Reaping[src]

Katniss Everdeen is the main protagonist and the narrator of the Hunger Games trilogy. After her younger sister, Primrose, was reaped to participate in the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss volunteered to take her place as the female tribute from District 12. This action set in motion the events of the original trilogy.


Various songs appear and are mentioned throughout The Hunger Games trilogy. Although relatively few are expounded upon in any detail, music in general holds importance for many characters: Katniss Everdeen's father was renowned for his singing voice and taught many songs to his daughter; Rue described music as her favorite thing in the world; and music often plays a part in celebrations or important events throughout Panem.

Music is prominent in the prequel novel The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, in which the character Lucy Gray Baird is a member of a performing group known as the Covey. She performs a number of songs throughout the novel.
