dc.description.abstract Dystopia as a genre has gained the attention of literary scholars as many dystopian works have been analyzed for the elements, reflections, and sociopolitical critiques they carry. 1984 is a popular dystopia, written by George Orwell, which became the stepping stone for other dystopian works. Among these works are The Hunger Games trilogy, by Suzanne Collins, and Attack on Titan, by Hajime Isayama. In this thesis, I explored both texts in the light of 1984, and it became evident that they follow the patterns and integrate elements from the Orwellian dystopia. Then, I explored the character development in all three works, and it showed how the literary medium, the style of the author, and the purpose of the character affect the method and depth of development.
