This storyboard does not have a description.
The mood of "The Lottery" started off light and happy, but throughout the story it turns more serious and dark.
In the beginning of the story the children were gathering stones and gathered them into a pile and into their pockets. The gathering of the stones was foreshadowing the end in which the villagers would stone somebody.
Tessie showed up late probably on purpose because she didn't want to be in the lottery. That foreshadowed that people didn't want to be in it.
Many of the villagers name were ironic. For example Mr.Summers name sounds happy. Also the title itself is ironic as a lottery is usually happy unlike the one in the story.
Mrs.Delacroix's name holds the suffix "croix" which means of the cross, but everyone in town pronounced "croy" which is wrong. That symbolized that what what they did was wrong and not of the cross.
One of the many themes of this story is to not follow the crowd. Just because everyone else does something doesn't mean that it's right or what should be done.
