"The Lottery" written by Shirley Jackson is a short story that explains accurate reflection of societal issues. It focuses on defining the uncertainty and fear of what awaits the people in the future. The novel began by describing a group of children enjoying themselves, with the town celebrating the summer season by collecting stones and rocks. Mr. Summers who is acting as the organizer of town's activities set up a wooden box that had the names of all the families of the city written on it. The author gives a picture of families gathering to write their names on the wooden box that Mr. Summers set up. However, the story focuses on one family, the Hutchinson's family. Shock ensued during the game when Mrs. Hutchison drew a doted paper while other families drew plain papers. The families already understood the purpose of the game/lottery.
