Stones I choose this symbol because it shows how the kid is afraid and has built a barricade of rocks to protect himself from the other kids and people which is another example of imagery. The people in part represent fear because of the annual tradition of The Lottery.

Bobby and Harry Jones and Dickie Delacroix the villagers pronounced this name Dellacroy eventually made a great pileof stones in one corner of the square and guarded against the raids of the other boys.
Clear and Sunny I choose this imagery because it shows that it is the first day of The Lottery . The kid knows what to expect today. The imagery is the description of the sky . The morning was clear and sunny. As shown in lines 1-2 quote The morning of June 27th was clear and sunny with the fresh warmth of a full summer day.
I choose this imagery because it shows that the Imagery that was used in the story by being very descriptive about the stones("selecting the smoothest and roundest stones."). Irony was shown because in the real world , the lottery takes much longer than 2 hours("whole lottery took less than two hours.").

I choose this tone because,it shows that the author used a didactic tone by saying. "The morning of June 27th was clear and sunny" when describing the setting of the story.

As shown in lines 328-329 quote It isn't fair it isn't right, Mrs. Hutchinson screamed, and then they were upon her.
