  • " The Lottery" By Shirley Jackson
  • Exposition
  • Characterization
  • One must be sacrificed so the crops may grow.
  • Conflict
  • The calendar falls on June 26th a warm summer day. In a village where the people are polite and happy.
  • Rising Action
  • Climax/Turning Point
  • Sigh... Hopefully they show mercy this year.
  • Tessie has no problem with the town's tradition until it is her family who is faced to make the sacrifice, then she declares it unfair. Other townspeople might also struggle inwardly at their actions and whether or not it could be considered murder or custom
  • When someone is sacrificed we will have a great crop season.
  • Most the tombstones in the cemetery have the same date of death June 6 and the town is getting ready for its annual lottery that takes place on June 6th. The lottery begins to take place. The town gathers and the names are drawn as people take a piece of paper and wait to see who the "winner" is.
  • The drawing of the slips of paper is finished and the townspeople begin to unfold their papers with sighs of relief. the "winner" is declared as the Hutchinson family and ultimately after the second drawing Tessie is declared the "winner".
