  • NO MORE LOTTERY! 
  •  The Lottery took place in a small, non described village, where the townspeople assembled. The people began to gather on June 27th.  ¨The people of the village began to gather in the square, between the post office and the bank, around ten o'clock¨
  • Person vs. Society:  ¨"It isn't fair," she said. A stone hit her on the side of the head. Old Man Warner was saying, "Come on, come on, everyone."¨ ¨"It isn't fair, it isn't right," Mrs. Hutchinson screamed, and then they were upon her.¨ Mrs. Hutchinson didn't think the lottery was fair, but no one in town was on her side. They all thought the lottery was necessary and they wouldn't get rid of it.  
  • Traditions & Customs: "Used to be a saying about 'Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon.' First thing you know, we'd all be eating stewed chickweed and acorns. There's always been a lottery," The townspeople think in order to have good crops for the next season, they need to stone someone to death. People thought it worked in the past, so they wont give it up now. They cant afford to have bad crops.
