The people who had the greatest impact on someone else was the whole town on Tessie Hutchinson.They affect her by throwing rocks at her till she dies
The mood of the setting was fun and interesting in the beginning but it got weird and confusing in the end."Mr.Summers spoke frequently to the villagers about making a new box,but no one liked to upset even as much tradition as was represented by the black box."
The story is told in third person omniscient if it was to be told in any other way we wouldn't know how any other character feels
The main conflict is individual vs society because Tessie is getting rocks thrown at here cause of a random lottery.The character ends up dying because of all the rocks thrown at her that is how they responded to the conflict.
The black box is a symbol it represents the tradition of the lottery and the loyalty of the villagers to it.It only remained because the people believed the stories it carried for so long.
The theme is to question tradition if you think it is cruel or wrong and this is relevant to readers because of how civilization can be violent for these traditions.
