A sunny morning on June 27th with a lot of people gathering in a town. (A boy named Bobby Martin makes a pile of stones and stuffs them in his pockets)
All of the families in the town gather and then Tessie Hutchinson came rushing in complaining about being late and she joins her family. Soon the people begin to draw the slips of paper from the black box.
The drawing for the "lottery" has finally came. Tessie Hutchinson is the one selected. "Tessie", Mr. Summers said. There was a pause, and then Mr. Summers looked at Bill Hutchinson, and Bill unfolded his paper and showed it.
Literary Term- Irony
The townspeople start to throw rocks at Tessie Hutchinson and she eventually dies.
"Ouch this hurts so bad!"
People go back to living their daily normal life acting if nothing had ever happened, including Tessie's own family members.
"Good morning, how are you?"
An example of irony in the short story, The Lottery, is that the story begins very happy, it is a beautiful summer morning and then in the end it is very sad and a woman gets stoned to death because she had won the "lottery."
