  • Community, Sacrifice, Tradition
  • You didn't give him time enough to take any paper he wanted. I saw you. It wasn't fair!
  • The scene in which everyone in the town is gathered in the square to start the lottery, this shows community. Mr. Summers sates in The Lottery "guess we better get started, get this over with, so's we can go back to work. Anybody ain't here?" This shows me this is a close community because everyone knows everyone else and would know if someone wasn't there.
  • When the children are collecting and kicking the rocks around this is foreshadowing because at the end of the story Mrs. Hutchinson gets killed by those stones. It states in the story "Bobby Martin had already stuffed his pockets full of stones, and other boys soon followed his example." This shows that the boys were excited for the lottery and were ready to use the stones. Next to that is shown when the rocks were being used to kill her.
  • Shirley Jackson creates a mood of suspenseful and tense at this point in the story by Tessie protesting against Bill choosing the slip of paper with the black dot on it. This is explained when in the story it states "People began to look around to see the Hutchinson.s Bill Hutchinson was standing quite, staring down at the paper in his hand. Suddenly. Tessie Hutchinson shouted to Mr. Summers." This shows that Tessie was nervous and scared causing a suspenseful and tense mood.
