Katniss and Peeta’s relationship can also be seen as a parallel of the slow opening of Panem society to reintegration. Peeta—as a baker and as someone whose name is a homonym for a type of bread, pita— is bread and Panem is bread, so what happens to Peeta happens to Panem; as Peeta crosses racial lines and breaks out of his class mold, so does Panem, resulting (eventually) in the creation of a new generation unfettered by such strict socioethnic lines. Katniss herself was born to interracial parents; she is the second generation of her family to engage in a positive interracial relationship, despite coming from a culture of such isolation that both the Seam and merchant classes have fairly static appearances.
