The Black Box is Symbolic of Traditions and Rituals
The Lottery Is Symbolic of Chances of Life
I haven't been chosen for 77 years!
The character's name Mr. Graves in “The Lottery” is symbolic of tombstones and death.
Tessie has been chosen.
Typically, traditions and rituals don’t change much over the years. As a rule, the black box that “grew shabbier every year” had not changed for a long time. Therefore, the black box in the lottery is symbolic of traditions and rituals because just like traditions, it does not change.
Typically, a person has very little chance to win the lottery. As a rule, it would take a lot of luck to be chosen, as is the case with old man Warner. He states, “seventy-seventh year I been in the lottery”. Therefore the drawing in The Lottery is symbolic of the chances in life because it just like in the case of Old Man Warner, it will take a lot of luck to be chosen.
Typically, the word grave symbolizes death. As a rule, the name “Mr. Grave” would be assumed to have something to do with death and tombstones. For example, in the text it says, “Mr. Graves had selected the five slips”. Therefore the character’s name Mr. Grave is symbolic of death because he is the person that chooses the slips that will determine who will die after the lottery.
