Theme: They use a person to use to escape the societies problem
We need to kill her for tradition.
Point of View: Third Person (POV)
The conflict of the lottery is A Person vs. Society the main protagonist Tessie Hutchinson trying to fight the system and the old traditions of the village but in the end she dies
The Village uses Tessie Hutchinson as a scapegoat for all who are blamed for the evils of a society and banished in order to expel sin and allow for renewal there is no real reason for it "There was the proper swearing-in of Mr. Summers by the postmaster, as the official of the lottery; at one time, some people remembered, there had been a recital of some sort, performed by the official of the lottery, a perfunctory. tuneless chant that had been rattled off duly each year; some people believed that the official of the lottery used to stand just so when he said or sang it, others believed that he was supposed to walk among the people, but years and years ago this part of the ritual had been allowed to lapse. (7)"
The lottery doesn't do first person of a character they use a narrator who is in the third person describing the story. Mrs. Hutchinson went on. "and then I looked out the window and the kids was gone, and then I remembered it was the twenty seventh and came a-running." She dried her hands on her apron, and Mrs. Delacroix said, "You're in time, though. They're still talking away up there." The author is saying the narrator can read the minds and say the actions of the people from a 3rd person point of view
