I choose this symbol because it represents death and fear in the town. The dot on the paper indicates the person that will be stoned at the end of the story. It shows the fear this piece of paper and box has on the town. It also shows the traditions that he towns people believe in.
Tone and Theme
I choose this image because it show how the children feel about the lottery. As seen on line 20, " eventually made a great pile of stones in one corner of the square and guarded it against the raids of other boys." on line 21 it states," The girls stood aside, talking among themselves." This shows the audience exactly where the kids where and what they were doing that day while awaiting the drawing.
This cell represents how the box had been worn down over time. As stated on line 64, " The black box grew shabbier each year; by now it was no longer completely black but splintered badly along one side to show the original wood color, and in some places faded or stained." This allows the read to picture how the box has aged over the years that its been used.
I choose this because it show suspense. In not telling the reader whats on the paper they are left wanting more from the story so they continue to read. The suspense from the story captivates people.
