The Lottery

English 10
“It isn’t fair, it isn’t fair!” (Page 4) These are the final words that Mrs. Hutchinson said in Shirley Jacksons story “The Lottery.”   Mrs. Hutchinson through the course of the story is definitely one the interesting characters and shows emotion in parts of the story as well.

But actually might have been thinking that killing someone for good crops is barbaric. Along with saying to the crowd “Seventy seventh time I been in the lottery.” (Page 3) I think that he doesn’t care about what happens to the others as long as he can brag about making it another year. That’s why I believe that Old Man Warner is the interesting character in the story.
Finally if I were to say what type of Romantic writing this is I would have to put it in the category Brooding Romantic. The reason why I chose that is because the kill some for a good season of crop, but they don’t just shoot them or hang them they decide to stone the person to death. Not only is this bad but when   the time comes to stone Mrs....
