    its a social commentary, it shows how ridiculous traditions can be sometimes. the town has no idea why they do the lottery, the just know that its a tradition so they have to do it. hope this helps.

    Accordingly, we are prohibited from presenting the full text here in our short story collection, but we can present a summary of the story, along with by some study questions, commentary, and explanations.


    On a warm summer day, villagers gather in a town square to participate in a lottery. The village is small with about 300 residents, and they are in an excited but anxious mood. We learn that this is an annual event and that some surrounding towns are thinking about abandoning the lottery. Mrs. (Tess) Hutchinson makes an undramatic entrance and chats briefly with Mrs. Delacroix, her friend.

    Shirley Jackson was born in San Francisco in 1916 to Leslie and Geraldine Jackson, a middle-class couple. When she was a teenager, her family moved to Rochester, New York, where Jackson graduated from Brighton High School in 1934. She attended the University of Rochester briefly, but then dropped out and ultimately received her bachelor s degree from Syracuse University. At Syracuse University, Jackson worked on the school newspaper, The Spectre , and thus met her future husband, Stanley Edgar Hyman.

    After graduation, Jackson married Hyman and they moved to a rural area in Vermont, where they had four children. Jackson s novel Life Among the Savages (1953) is a humorous account of her experiences as a mother and wife. Jackson s other memoir is Raising Demons (1957). Some of her other works are semi-autobiographical, such as My Life with R. H. Macy.

    This consciousness is as visually selective as a cinematic camera eye, noting
    for us, already in the second paragraph, ominous details amid so much that is ordinary, even banal: “Bobby Martin had already stuffed his pockets full of stones, and the other boys soon followed his example….”

    Tessie Hutchinson was in the center of a cleared space by now, and she held her hands out desperately as the villagers moved in on her. “It isn’t fair,” she said. A stone hit her on the side of the head.

    I think you need to be aware that the tone of any given work does not necessarily stay the same. This is a case in point with "The Lottery", because the tone has a distinct shift from a peaceful, normal, everyday kind of tone to a grimly horrific tone that finishes the tale. Note how Jackson almost from the first sentence deliberately misleads us into thinking that this story is going to be something very different from what it actually is:
