  • Horrific
  • Tessie gets the black mark on her piece of paper and she is marked as something along the lines of a black sheep.
  • Tessie stands alone as everyone prepares to attack her in an almost tribal ritualistic way. The Lottery is almost an excuse to participate in violence that is sanctioned by the town as just.
  • In the end Tessie is sacrificed by getting stoned to death by her former neighbors and friends. One stone, two stones, many stones, then they were upon her.
  • Come on, Hurry up.
