  • An example of tradition in The Lottery is in the story, "Seventy-seventh year I been in the lottery," Old Man Warner said as he went through the crowd. "Seventy-seventh time." This shows that Old-man Warner has been traditionally involved in lotteries for 77 years.
  • An example of foreshadowing in The Lottery can be found in the text, "Bobby Martin had already stuffed his pockets full of stones, and the other boys soon followed his example, selecting the smoothest and roundest stones; Bobby and Harry Jones and Dickie Delacroix-- the villagers pronounced this name "Dellacroy"--eventually made a great pile of stones in one corner of the square and guarded it against the raids of the other boys." This foreshadows the stones that will be used during the sacrifice.
  • An example of mood in The Lottery can be found in the very beginning. In the text, the author explains, "The morning of June 27th was clear and sunny, with the fresh warmth of a full-summer day; the flowers were blossoming profusely and the grass was richly green." This shows the mood as a beautiful, sunny summer day in the village.
