The irony of the lottery; one might think the person who wins gets a wonderful prize.  However, Shirley Jackson sets the tone of the story and she makes you feel weary about the lottery.

For example:  The pile of Stones is gathered for this lottery
                          The women are not dressed their best

I believe if the town had one lesson person to feed.  There would be enough food to get through the winter.

·         Do you think it is a positive thing or a negative thing? Why? [3-4]

It’s a negative thing, murder is murder.  The town’s people even though somber, the village tries to make light of the negative and they were all afraid.  Especially the children were not counted out of the lottery.

Negative-Murder-Death

13.   How does old man Warner respond to talk about giving up the lottery?

·         Why?
Because in the end someone’s life gets taken away because of a bad tradition to sacrifice
a person to secure extra food.

19.    What do all the Hutchinson Kids have to do now?

Bill Jr., Nancy and Little Davis also have to draw from the box.  Even though they are children, they are not excluded from the lottery.

Although the villagers had forgotten the ritual and lost the original black box, they still remember to use the stones.

Paragraph 25

21.    What do Mrs. Hutchinson and Mrs. Dunbar start to do?

Mrs. Hutchinson states it isn’t fair, she is in the center of the Square and Mrs. Dunbar is gasping for air trying to catch up her husband to stone Mrs. Hutchinson to death.

22.   What happens to Mrs. Hutchinson at the End?

A Stone hits her on the side of the head.  Even the village hands her son Little Davis little pebbles to participate in the stoning of his mother.

It isn’t fair right Mrs. Hutchinson screamed, and then they were upon her.


 Essential Questions:

·         If the majority of the people are doing something, does it make it right?

Depends what it is.  For example: Haiti just had earthquake.  It is a poor country and people assembled together to raise money to help the people in need of assistance.

The Lottery on the other hand doesn’t make it right.  The result is murder, yet this village continues a negative tradition.

·         Can good people do evil things?

Yes, good people can do evil things, in the story of the Lottery, town is filled with wonderful people however, and they have continued an evil tradition of gathering people to see who gets scarf iced.

·         What keeps a society or community together?

The people such as the Postmaster, the Grocer, the school, and the coal business—the jobs of the community

·         What purpose do rituals and traditions serve in a society?

Christmas is example of traditions.  It brings families together to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

However, in the Lottery this tradition has a negative effect on the town.  As the Villagers gather they are somber, even the children or frighten

        The girls stood aside, talking among themselves, looking over their shoulders at rolled in the dust or clung to the hands of their older brothers or sisters.

Which states they are just as scared as the adults?  They are not excused from the lottery

Bill Jr. Nancy and Little Davis also had to draw from the Black Box.

·         Why do people sometimes engage in pointless violence and in humanity?

Some People convince it is part of a religion: for example: the radical Muslims convince other Muslims to engage in violence to go to heaven.  If a person is not Muslim they do not have a right to live.

Biography Olympics
Jack Kelly is the greatest sculler the United States has ever produced. He began rowing with the Chamonix and Montrose Boat Clubs of Philadelphia, but in 1909 he joined the Vesper Boat Club. Between 1909 and his competitive retirement after the 1924 Olympics, Kelly won every sculling title available to him, including the World Championship in both singles and doubles, the Olympics in singles and doubles, and many national titles in both boats. In 1919 and 1920, he won the national single sculls title over both the sprint distance (¼-mile) and 1½ miles. Kelly never won the Diamond Sculls at the Henley Regatta because he was denied entry. The usual rumor is that he was considered a professional by the Henley authorities, because his trade, as a contractor, gave him an unfair advantage in that it required him to use his muscles for strengthening, but that is false. In fact, all members of Vesper Boat Club were banned for what were considered, to the British, earlier professional activities. Kelly would certainly have won that title had he been allowed to compete and in later years had the last laugh on the British when his "bricklaying" led to a lucrative business as a contractor in Philadelphia. Kelly fathered two very famous children – John Kelly, Jr., another Olympic rower, who became President of the U.S. Olympic Committee, and the late Grace Kelly, the American movie star who later became Princess Grace of Monaco.

MARGARET KELLY DIES - GRACE'S MOTHER: Newspaper Obituary and Death Notice
Orlando Sentinel, The (FL) - Monday, January 8, 1990
Deceased Name: MARGARET KELLY DIES - GRACE'S MOTHER

Margaret Kelly, mother of the late Princess Grace of Monaco and matriarch of the famed Kelly clan of Philadelphia, died at a convalescent home here. She was 91.
Kelly died at 8:45 a.m. Saturday of pneumonia, a spokesman for the Linwood Convalescent Center said. She had been a resident of the nursing home since 1982 and had suffered several strokes in recent years.
A former beauty queen and magazine cover girl, she was known both for her own accomplishments and those of her husband and children, particularly her daughter, actress Grace Kelly, who later married Prince Ranier of Monaco. Princess Grace died of injuries suffered in an automobile accident in September 1982.
Margaret Kelly's husband, John B. Kelly Sr., was an Olympic rowing champion who parlayed his skills as a bricklayer into a construction empire. He died in 1960.
Born on Dec. 13, 1898, the former Margaret Majer met her future husband at a Philadelphia swimming pool when she was a teen-ager. They married in 1924.
She is survived by two daughters, 13 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.
The couple's only son died in 1985.
Funeral services were planned for Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Grace’s parents, John B. (Jack) Kelly and Margaret (Majer) Kelly met at the Turngemeide swimming pool, located at Broad Street and Columbia Avenue, in 1916. Mrs. Kelly was an athletic coach for coeds at the University of Pennsylvania and was taking part in a recreational swim at the pool. Jack, a member of the swim team at Turngemeide, saw Margaret for the first time and immediately fell in love. The two were married on January 30, 1924, at which point Mrs. Kelly converted to Catholicism- Jack was a devout Irish Catholic.3
