The lottery and other stories
By Shirley Jackson

Reviewed by R. Clark, age 13

"The Lottery," by Shirley Jackson is a story based on cruelty and violence. The story's plot centers on a small village of people waiting for the lottery to arrive. One of the characters is Mr. Summers, the person in charge of the lottery box. Another character, Old Man Warner has been in the lottery seventy-seven times. The setting for the story takes place on the morning of June 27th, a sunny and pleasant summer day, in the village square of a town of about three hundred people. This story is told by a third person omniscient narrator who knows what everyone is thinking. The major theme of "The Lottery" is the greatness of how the horrors of man's evil could be, and the characters in the story struggled to keep up with the lottery routine because of the fear of change.
