The theme of “The Lottery” is that you can’t trust everyone that you think trusts you. This is proven when Tessie desperately tries to explain the situation to her friends and family, but they kill her anyway, “ ‘It isn’t fair, it isn’t right,’ Mrs. Hutchinson screamed, and they were upon her” (Jackson, 7). The Hunger Games’ theme is that you can find trust where your heart lies. “Peeta, who’s wounded, is now my ally….The thought makes me smile”(Collins, 244-248). Katniss realizes in the story that she loves Peeta, and that she can trust him.
And I took her away” (Kidd, 8). Deborah, Lily’s mother had previously ran away and came back but Lily was not sure why. When T. Ray came in the room and started yelling, all Lily wanted to do was help. Because of this she has to live with the constant memory of shooting her mother, and questioning herself, whether or not her mother’s purpose in coming back that hot day, was to get Lily. Most readers at this time can not even comprehend the pain Lily feels because most people do not go through times like this.
To conclude, Tessie and Mary Maloney are both morally corrupt resulting in selfish and self-centered acts. Both short stories were intertwined with the theme of betrayal. Mary Maloney betrayed her husband due to her selfishness. If she was not going to be happy, she made sure her husband was not going to either. Tessie partook in The Lottery for many deaths, however when her name is picked out of the box, she speaks up and says ‘it isn’t
People belittle others so they don’t have to deal with themselves. Nevertheless, perception doesn’t only affect the way people deal with others, but how they act themselves, “Why-! The girl [Abigail] is murder! She must be ripped out of the world!” (Miller 72). Elizabeth’s loathing for the person she perceives Abigail to be has lead her to say things that she never would have before.
Sarah worked in the cookhouse. All of her children were sold except for one because she was considered a defect since she couldn’t talk. The reason all her children were sold because of Margaret who just wanted, “‘new furniture, new china dishes… things she didn’t even need”’ (Butler 95). Margaret finally saw how the slaves on the property felt when their kids are taken away from them. Margaret had twins, but they, ‘“died one after the other...she went kind of crazy’” (Butler 137).
This showed that Hester thought of only herself and she wanted to get all the money at once on the proclamation that she had to pay back her debts but instead of paying her debts, she spent all money in extravagant.

No one was sure who was to hang next and how long the period would last. At the end of the era the council who had been calling the hangings and pressing of Giles Corey had recognized “we’ve made a terrible mistake” taking all those people’s lives. It was all simply to be right and just to God but taking God’s most valuable gift, LIFE it was not good decision making on their part. Unfortunately they realized that at the almost end of the hangings and what not after seeing how many lives were taken. In “The Crucible” the lies, deceit, and mistrust all came from Abigail Williams and the girls she had under her “rule” because of greedy wants and revenge on certain townsfolk.
Abigail is accusing Mary Warren of being a witch just to keep all the attention off of her: “Mary, please don’t hurt me” (Abigail)! Now that the truth has been released Abigail is really worried that everything will be ruined if it is: “Mr.Danforth, he is lying” (Abigail)! I believe these sentences are my favorite from the story because things are heating up even more since the truth about the affair has been released in the court. Abigail Williams, a dynamic character, changes by the end of the play from bad to worse: Hathorne is astonished by Abigail’s disappearance and taking parris money to get away: “she have robbed you” (Hathorne)? Danforth now stating to know of Abigail’s disappearance doesn’t really seem to care: ‘My daughter tells me how she heard them speaking of ships l last week, and tonight i discover my- my strongbox is broke into” (Parris).

“‘You didn’t give him time enough to take any paper her wanted, I saw you. It wasn’t fair!’” (Jackson 5). And ultimately when it was Tessie who had ended up with the black dot on her paper, it was deemed unfair by her. Everyone takes the same chance by participating but once any of them are picked to be stoned to death they see the wrong in the ceremony. “‘It isn’t fair, it isn’t right,” Mrs. Hutchinson screamed, then they were upon her” (Jackson
“The Lottery,” a short story by Shirley Jackson, is about a woman who has been selected for sacrifice by a lottery drawing. Tessie Hutchinson, and the rest of her town, are unfeeling about how the annual sacrifice affects the selected. However, they carry on with their tradition year after year, with no intent to make changes to meet modern day morals and needs. “The Lottery” is about blindly following tradition, the awareness of how cruel a practice sacrificing is, and how one’s mindset can change when they are the chosen one. (1) When one blindly follows tradition, they become unmindful.

At first she was fine with the punishment but, once she saw the effect it had on her life she
