The Lottery by Shirley Jackson
This storyboard does not have a description.
My daughter draws with her husband's family; that's only fair. And I've got no other family except the kids.
It isn't fair! It isn't right!
The children represent innocence in the story. In the beginning the children mindlessly play, even though they are surround by very serious and somber events.
Mr. Graves took the hand of the little boy, who came willingly with him up to the box. Davy put his hand into the box and laughed. (Page 6) Davy's innocence represents not only the children's in the story understanding of the lottery, but also the readers' at this point in the story.
In just a few moments, Davy's life is completely changed and his innocent destroyed. He is forced to commit an act of violent he clearly doesn't understand towards his own mother. This represents the destruction of all innocence in the town.
