The symbol i chose for my comic strip is The Lottery. The Lottery is a symbol of evil. The Lottery is a yearly tradition that all villigers took part in by eliminating one ramdom canidate by stoning them to death.
TONE AND THEME
"... by now it was no longer completely balck but splintered badly along one side to show the original wood color, and in some places fade or stained. " (Lines 65-69)
The figure of speech i chose for my commic is personification. Personification- "The black book grew shabbier each year..." (Line 67) What the author Shirley Jackson is trying to say is that black box has been in the tradition for so long that it looks worn down.
At the begining of the short story The Lottery the theme starts off as casual and friendly. The tone aslo seems casual and friendly when people gather around for the annual lottery. However towards the ending the theme and tone take a turn down the hilland become frighteningly disturbing.
