One type of symbolism on page 67 about Cinna is when Katniss describes Cinna as having a normal demeanor that masks a crazy person. I believe this means that Cinna acts as a regular person but looks like a crazy person. I am predicting that Cinna's style involves a variety of hues and different type of fabric. My analysis tells me that Cinna is a nice person but has different touch to him! I actually liked Cinna for being so different.

The following simile is found on page 73: " But that dark and creaky thing that moves like a snail and smells of sour milk." This line is an example of a simile because this shows a comparison with "like" or "as" between two things. The comparison is between the elevator in District 12 and a snail and the smell of sour milk. This comparison tells me that the elevator in District 12 smells really bad and moves very slow. Next figurative language is the following: " We watch the people on the bottom floor shrink to little ants." This is also found on page 73, and this is a hyperbole because people can't really shrink to ants. However, I can understand that the higher Katniss went on the elevator the smaller the people below looked. The last figurative language is the following: " It floats down around my shoulders in a glossy curtain." This metaphor is found on page 75. This is a metaphor because it compares Katniss' hair and a curtain without using "like" or "as". This means that her hair is long and draping on her shoulders softly. I believe the author uses great figurative language throughout the story.
