In 1948, when the New Yorker published Shirley Jacksons piece, “The Lottery,” it sparked outrage among readers, but could arguably be known as one of her most famous pieces of writing. In this short story, Shirley Jackson used literally elements such as imagery, diction, and symbolism to foreshadow the negative and harsh ending of the story; the harsh ending that sparked such outrage by society in the 1940’s. One of the main ways Jackson foreshadows the ending and true meaning of her short story, “The Lottery,” is through symbolism. Jackson uses the color black throughout the story.

Rattle your Brain uses their hands, ears and minds so they can increase those senses in their development. Description We decided to make a memory type game called Rattle your Brain, which is suited for the early childhood stage. Rattle your Brain, has twelve small boxes in a big box and each box has a corresponding pair. It rather works the same as the memory game but with the added benefits of sounds, pictures of animals, and the first letter of the kind of animal.

In “The Lottery” after Mrs. Hutchinson drew the black spot from the box, winning the lottery, Jackson immediately wrote how the people of the town would start to surround her with rocks.

“Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy… That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee is set in the racist county of Maycomb, Alabama in the 1930s. All different types of people live in this town, the gossips, the unwanted, the misjudged and so on. Arthur Radley otherwise known as Boo is misunderstood and misjudged throughout the story.

When Douglass describes the effects of slavery on Mistress Hugh he says, “Slavery soon proved its ability to divest her of these heavenly qualities. Under its influence, the tender heart became stone” (Douglass 16). The mistress was once a caring and considerate person but after owning a slave and seeing how her husband treated Douglass, she too began to mimic his brutal ways. This shows even the purest of people are turned evil by witnessing how slaves were treated. Greed and the desire to follow the ways of others caused cruelty of others.
