"Clear and sunny with freash warmth of a summers day." This is how the setting of the story is first presented to us. Its described as a normal typical summer day.
"The box is shabbier, and has splinters, color fades." This represents the box being old and worn/run down when they describe the box in the story
The suspense in this scene to me was when she started screaming about it wasnt fair that her name was called in the lottery. Usually the lottery is something that people would be happy to win but apparently this wasnt the case in this particular situation. I was trying to figure out why it wasnt fair and why when reading the story the character sounded more afraid
"Come on, Lets finish this quickly."
Stones symbolize murder, In the story stones are used to kill the winner (basically loser) of the lottery.
In the beginning of the story we can recall that school boys started picking up stones and shoving them in their pockets finding the roundest and smoothest of stones after the oldest of the boys did that the younger ones followed suit.
This is a oxymoron because stoning someone to death is a very slow process and when he says "lets finish this quickly" it kinda doesnt make any sense to kill them quickly with stones.
