1. Were you surprised by the ending of the story? If not, at what point did you know what was going to happen? How does Jackson foreshadow the ending?

⇢A lottery reminds me of a something real good and a big fortune like a "Lotto" but I really got overwhelmed by a sudden shock with the ending. This twist might be what makes this story so disturbing and horrifying but a wonderful work of literature art though. What seemed like a wonderful, joy-filled day ended with an unfortunate, tragic death.

2. Conversely, how does Jackson lull us into thinking that this is just an ordinary story with an ordinary town?

Jackson tells the reader what time of day and what time of year the story takes place. The time of day is set in the morning and the time of year is early summer. She also describes that school has just recently let out for summer break, letting the reader infer that the time of year is early summer. Jackson also seems to stress on the beauty of the day and the brilliance of nature. This provides the positive outlook and lets the reader relax into what seems to be a comfortable setting for the story. In addition, Children play happily, women gossip, and men casually talk about farming.

It is very apparent that tradition is very coveted in this small, simple town. This can be proven by the ancient, black box used for the lottery and the significance of farming for the community.
