  • This shows what community looks like in the story the "Lottery" In the text it says, "The children assembled first, of course. Soon the men began to gather surveying their own children, speaking of planting and rain, tractors and taxes. The women, wearing faded house-dresses and sweaters, came shortly after their menfolk. They greeted one another and exchanged bits of gossip as they went to join their husbands." This evidence shows that the community at the beginning of the story was just a normal gathering.
  • When the author was talking about the rocks at the beginning of the story that was an event of foreshadowing. In the text it says, "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." In my picture you can see the boys standing around the pile of stones.
  • This picture is what I thought of when the author first started to describe the mood of the story. In the text it says, "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." These words make me have a calm relaxed mood. Although throughout the story the mood starts to gradually get more creepy.
