Storyboard Text

  • Tessie
  •                                     Mr. Graves
  • Mr.Summers
  • Tessie's name and the meaning of it isn't as ironic as the others. She thought that the lottery was a very bad thing and it shouldn't happen. Tessie states in the story before her death, "it isn't fair, it isn't right" (Jackson 7).  Although, Tessie was the only character who was opposed to the lottery, she is the one who in the end died. 
  • Mrs. Delacroix
  • ✞✞✞
  • Mr. Graves has an ironic name because what his job is in the story, his name matches that. Mr. Graves, along with Mr. Summers helps with the organization of the lottery. It says in the story, "Mr. Graves nodded and held up the slips of paper" (Jackson 6). Mr. Graves giving people the slips of paper is like he is giving them their chance at death.
  • Old Man Warner
  • "The lottery in June, Corn be heavy soon" (Jackson2).
  • In the story Mr. Summers is the leader of the lottery. He is the keeper of the black box which represents death. Mr. Summers has a fairly positive attitude and personality, but he portrays a very dark character. It says in the story "Mr. Summers was very good at all this; in his white shirt and blue jeans. With one hands carelessly resting on the black box..." (Jackson 2).
  • Delacroix means of the cross, like Christianity. One of the main things that christians believe is that they shouldn't kill. Yet, Mrs. Delacriox participates in the stoning. Near the end of the story as Tessie is about to be stoned it says, "...Delacroix selected a stone so large she had to pick it up with both hands and turned to Mrs. Dunbar. 'Come on,' she said. 'Hurry Up' (Jackson 7). It's ironic that she would pick the biggest stone and encourage others to start stoning Tessie.
  • Old man warner has lived through 77 years of the lottery, but he is so used to the tradition he has a very strong opinion as to why the lottery shouldn't stop, He says in the story, "...Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon" (Jackson 2). He thinks that the lottery were to stop happening, then the growing season wouldn't be as good and their way of life would go backward and get worse or better.
