For my symbol i chose the stones. The stones symbolize a tool of death. on page 26 line 8 it says "they stood together, away from the pile of stones in the corner, and their jokes were quiet and they smiled rather then laughed"
Tone and Theme
on page 25. line 2 it states "The flowers were blossoming profusely and the grass was richly green". The image gives u spring vibes. During spring flowers blossom and that's when the grass starts to grow. Sounds like it was going to be a bright sunny day.
for figure of speech i chose "seems like there is not time at all between lotteries anymore" on line 170. This means that there is no time to enjoy life because right after a lottery there's another one.
The theme in the short story "The lottery" is that not everything comes expected. In the story they made it seem like the lottery is a good thing but towards the end it starts to give evidence to support how the lottery is not as so good. The stones were one of the biggest symbols it gave to support the lottery isn't a good thing.
