THE Lottery: TWIST Analysis By Julianna Martell and Luke Dingler
Some of you fellows want to give me a hand?
TWIST Analysis is a way to understand the story better.
She uses an ominous tone in this excerpt, that does not reveal too much about the lottery but enough to keep you interested.
The word choice shows that the story takes place in the past. To prove this, "Some of you fellows want to give me a hand?" This shows that the story takes place in the past because of the old language.
The author uses imagery when she writes about how the people stood back and were hesitant to help.
The style of the story is formal and grim.
The theme of the story is that people blindly follow tradition without questioning it.
