My symbol is the black box meaning fear.The black box is a box with slips of paper with everyone's name in the town on it. The people in the town were afraid of the black box because it could mean life or death for them. Due to the fact that if their name was picked out from the black box then they would be stoned to death.
Tone & Theme
My image is the grass and the flowers and how they were blossuming that day. I chose this beacuse it is showing how beautiful it was that day, but it was also was a bad day because someone is going to get stoned. Sited in Line 1, ...the flowers were blosuming profusely and the grass was righy green."
My Figure o f speech is "Lottery in June corn be heavy soon", because it recalls a time when when the lottery was the meaning of the crops growing heavily. Meaning that when the lottery eventually came around that would meant the corn would start sprouting.Every year the lottery happened the corn would start growing.
The tone I chose is, "for a minute now know one moved and then all the slips of paper were opened", I chose this quote because it is the theme and the tone of the lottery.tThe tone of the lottery is hesitant, it takes a while to actually know what is happening in the story.This also is a day that people of the town fear because it could be their name that ends up on that slip of paper. The theme of the story in this sentence is to be prepared to have your name on that slip of paper.
