Storyboard Text

  • Foreshadowing
  • Characterization: Direct Description and character's own actions
  • "There goes my old man."-Mrs. Delacroix
  • Suspense
  • Bobby Martin, Harry Jones, and Dickie Delacroix made a great pile of stones in one corner of the square and guarded it against the raid of the other boys. These stones foreshadow the finale of the lottery, and what will be taking place in the end. These stones are a sign of the violence to come and is a hint, the audience should've picked up on.
  • Symbolism/Theme
  • "Mr. Summers was a round-faced, jovial man and he ran the coal business"(pg.1,Jackson). "Mr.Summers was very good at all this, in his clean white shirt and blue jeans, with one hand resting carelessly on the black box. He seemed very proper and important as he talked interminably to Mr. Graves and the Martins"( Jackson, pg.2). Mr.Summers was a man of power and progress .
  • Man v.s Man
  • "Shut up, Tessie"
  • "You didn't give him time enough to take any paper he wanted. I saw you. It wasn't fair!"
  • Mrs.Delacroix's husband is called to the black box. "There goes my old man." Mrs Delacroix said. She held her breath while her husband went forward"(Jackson, pg.4 ). The suspense is shown from the paper slips and who will be chosen for the outcome that is unknown to the audience.
  • Verbal Irony
  • The black box represents tradition because it is said to contain pieces of the box that preceded it, and the people don't like to break tradition. The black box has been apart of the lottery for as long as anyone can remember and nobody wants to replace it. The people are showing the theme of blindly following tradition, because they always stone a person every year, without questioning why.
  • Tessie Hutchinson and Bill Hutchinson start off in the story as seeming very distant from each other in their relationship because he left without her for the lottery. Bill was chosen for the lottery and Tessie tries to defend him, but Bill replies, "Shut up, Tessie"( Jackson, pg.5). Tensions rise as Tessie makes up excuses for Bill being the chosen one.
  • The Lottery name itself is ironic because nobody wins, but somebody loses their life instead. This is shown at the end of the story with Tessie Hutchinson's death. Verbal irony is when there is a contrast between what is said and what is meant.
