Tone and Theme
This image representing imagery shows an example of how imagery is used through out the story. This picture id from this quote, "the flowers were blooming profusely and the grass was richly green. The people of the village began to gather in the square," This use of imagery gives you a visual when reading about what the day looks like in this part of The lottery .
This image that represents figurative language gives a visual example of how it was used throughout the story. This example of figurative language is repetition where Tessie one of the characters of The Lottery, continues to repeat, "it isn't fair." When she finds out her husband got the black dot and then a little later on when she finds out she is the one that has to get stoned.
The tone that can be seen in the image above is that it can be seen as dark and suspenseful throughout the story your kind of on the edge on thinking one thing could happen but something completely different happens in the end. I never thought The lottery would lead to Tessie being violently murdered in the which leads to the dark tone. The theme of The lottery can be seen as the people of the village to act in cruelty to banish the bad to get renewal.
