Jackson wrote this story to keep her readers in suspense the whole time One can guess The Lottery meant a drawing for money but a stoning This story seemed to take place in the 50s because of a small town where everybody knows each other where kids played together all the parents were married no divorcee only men were allowed to draw from the box and everybody was polite Every character was a protagonist starting from the kids piling the stones to the parents gathering up in a group for the lottery hearing What stood out in the story was Old man Warner mentioning Old pack of crazy fools 393 When the townspeople said at other towns the lottery had been banned And Old man Warner himself had been participating for seventy-seven years and had never been hit The reader wonders why the lottery was banned when you can get something good from it such as money In conclusion Jackson did a beautiful job in keeping her readers believing the original A group of townspeople nervous anxious hoping to get the winning ticket so they can go home richer and wondering why this so called lottery was banned in other towns But the point was not to get the winning ticket but to not get it It was a town tradition that even if you were popular and you got the winning ticket of coal no matter what youd get stoned thats why this lottery took two hours
