In this picture I used Old man Warner as a symbol for tradition and survival. Seeing as how he has survived this tradition the longest it only seems fitting that Old man Warner would be the one to represent it. And even by the end of the story he has survived another year of the lottery.
Tone and Theme
This picture relates to imagery because I am using a direct quote relating to sight "The flowers blooming profusely and the grass was a richly green". The image has captured the quote's description accurately and accordingly, hopefully bring it to life. As well as providing the reader something to base the stories description.
In this picture I was hoping to portray the foreshadowing that had occurred in the story. "Bobby Martin had already stuffed his pockets with stone...and the other boys soon followed". This image gives us a hint of the stoning that is yet to come and how literally everyone is involved, even the children. Surely emphasizing the effect that the lottery has on everyone without even knowing it.
The tone as well as the theme are displayed in this picture. The story has a very solemn tone as the lottery is occurring in the picture, with everyone gathering around to find out who's turn it is to die. The theme that I had picked out was that traditions are different for everyone, but most societies are founded on them; and much like this one its hard for them to let it go.
