  • Characterization: Protagonist
  • Characterization: Antagonist
  • Conflict
  • In "The Lottery", the protagonist is a woman named Tessie.  She is a wife, a mother, and a housekeeper.  During the story, she tries to voice her opinion on the event that is about to occur.  Where they live, it is a tradition that they sacrifice a civilian for the better of their crops.  Tessie wanted a change, but no one listened.  Everyone liked her but no one was going to hesitate on stoning her because they all know it is tradition.  A quote from the story where she voiced her opinion was when she said "There's Don and Eva", Mrs. Hutchinson yelled.  "Make them take their chance!" 
  • In "The Lottery", the antagonist would be the community.  They all believe that the protagonist is being selfish in trying to cheat death by fighting for a different paper during their ceremonial tradition.  The towns people all know that a family gets drawn and then whoever in the family gets the paper with the black dot, is the chosen family member.  The protagonist would later die.  A quote from the story that shows the community being careless is "All right, folks." Mr. Summers said.  "Let's finish quickly."
  • The conflict in "The Lottery" would be the society within the community.  The protagonist is in conflict with the antagonist.  The two believe in different actions that should take place.  A quote from the story says "It isn't fair," she said.  "A stone hit her on the side of the head."
