Tidbits about Dill

Dill is associated with Peeta so I thought I’d do a little digging into what Dill symbolizes. I will probably do an in-depth analysis of Peeta Mellark and symbolism in THG at some point but I thought I’d share these articles/tidbits!

In “old wives tales” dill, hung over the doorway or entrance to the house (and over babies’ cradles) was a symbol of love and would act as a protection against harm.

And there is so much more info on Dill!

"It‘s a long shot, it‘s suicide maybe, but I do the only thing I can think of. I lean in and kiss Peeta full on the mouth. His whole body starts shuddering, but I keep my lips pressed to his until I have to come up for air. My hands slide up his wrists to clasp his. “Don‘t let him take you from me.”

Peeta‘s panting hard as he fights the nightmares raging in his head. “No. I don‘t want to…”

I clench his hands to the point of pain. “Stay with me.”

His pupils contract to pinpoints, dilate again rapidly, and then return to something resembling normalcy. “Always,” he murmurs.”

“I’m not their slave,” the man mutters.
"I am," I say. "That’s why I killed Cato… and he killed Thresh… and he killed Clove… and she tried to kill me. It just goes around and around, and who wins? Not us. Not the districts. Always the capitol. But I’m tired of being a piece in their games.”
