    Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery” is not what you think it is. A lottery typically, is something you would want to win. In Jackson’s story, it is quite the opposite. You wouldn’t think anything was wrong at the beginning of the story. It takes place in a small village. Everyone seems to be excited about the lottery, because everyone is present for the lottery. All the characters in the story seem to get along well. Everyone in the town gathers for the lottery. All the children are gathering rocks. This rock collecting didn’t seem to make sense until later. The lottery takes place by having each man or head of household draw a piece of paper out of a black box. The man that draws the black dot then has to have their family members…

First off, in the beginning of the story, the children of the town have just finished school…

    1.The dark ending was not a typically lottery but throughout the story methods of foreshadowing was used by the author, Shirley Jackson. Characters throughout the story fear the lottery nervously but the dark suspicions are confirmed when “Tessie Hutchinson shouted to Mr. Summers. "You didn't give him time enough to take any paper he wanted. I saw you. It wasn't fair!"”(Jackson 5). Tessie instead of being excited for winning the lottery is extremely against winning which confirms that the lottery is nothing to be excited about. Jackson begins the story picturing the town as a the children were playing around as if nothing horrible was about to happen.…

    When the lottery finally begins anf familys are going up to pick their tickets, Tessie is acting complete opposite from all of the other towns people, because she was joking when there is such a serious matter at hand. While all of the other women are waiting nervously for their husbands to draw, she says to hers “get up there Bill” (136) and the people in the group around her all laugh quietly. It seams to me she out of all the other people she was the most anxious to want to know who was going to win the lottery. Everyone else is so nervous, and she just seams too…

    During the lottery, after most of the men had chosen and drawn their scrap of paper, they sat "turning them over and over nervously" (425). If the lottery was being conducted to give out some sort of reward or prize, they would have seemed eager, not nervous. Jackson also describes the way Mr. Summers and Mr. Adams grin at each other as "nervously" (425). The repetition of the word nervous reinforces that the lottery is not one of fun and games. In addition, Mrs. Dunbar's anticipation…

    Throughout her narrative, Jackson drops tantalizing hints about the lottery, but the reader never truly discovers the purpose until shortly before the conclusion. Jackson leads the reader on by insinuating that winning the lottery is not necessarily positive to a person. Jackson demonstrates the townspeople’s reluctance, such as Jack Watson, who, when called to draw out of the black box, “came awkwardly through the crowd...” (Jackson 127). His fellow townspeople ply him with words of encouragement like, “‘Don’t be nervous, Jack...’” and “‘Take your time, boy...” (Jackson 127). If winning the lottery benefitted the winner, the Watson boy would have been more enthusiastic about drawing his card. Mrs. Hutchinson’s dismay when she discovers her husband has drawn the marked card also lends to the suspicion that winning the lottery has a ruinous affect on the winner. When Mr. Summers announces that “Bill Hutchinson’s got [the marked paper],” Tessie Hutchinson goes on a…
