David does not fully grasp how Sharon feels about him when they were young and in love, as he continually feels the desire to prove to her and himself that he is a hero or astonishing man. The fact that David did not want to save the cat in the first place, yet he did it to preserve Sharon 's feelings for him is very ironic. While wanting to look like a noble man in Sharon 's eyes, even though she already viewed him in that way, David wound up negatively changing how Sharon perceived his character and integrity. Insecurities in himself and in his relationship become evident when he seems to care so deeply about what the cat strangers think about him. “I wanted to briefly be adored by strangers, to be remembered as a handsome and kind man, a better man, more complete, even saintly”.

Jackson comes across the short story with her views of tradition being negative, by having an outdated tradition to choose weather they will live or die. The short story explains how the lottery works and how it happens every year and how people follow it blindly. Before the lottery was described it seemed harmless and safe. They choose a man that isn’t very great to be the leader of the so-called lottery.
Jack’s non-existent rules are a way for him and his tribe to pretend like they can hide behind a mask and take away the boys ability to function as members of a civil society. Towards the end of the story, the lack of laws take a toll on all the boys on the island: “The breaking of the conch and the deaths of Piggy and Simon lay over the island like vapor. These painted savages would go further and further” (236). The breaking of the conch and the loss of two boys are prime examples as to why a society cannot function without rules. The rule of the conch was the first rule established by the assembly.
The irony of it all is that the items they sold have to do with the gifts they got each other. “ I sold the watch to get the money to buy the combs..." (pg 6) This quote shows what the couple went through to get the gift for the other person, only to find that it won’t be put to use. The story may have a strong twist, but at the end, it leaves the message to put others before yourself, even if there is a risk. “After Twenty Years” also has that same irony twist. His writing gives his stories interesting and funny traits not a lot of authors have.
