The Lottery Summary
“The Lottery” has been described as “one of the most famous short stories in the history of American literature”. It initially received a negative response, which surprised both Jackson and The New Yorker. Readers canceled subscriptions and sent hate mail throughout the summer. The Union of South Africa banned the story. Details of contemporary small-town American life are embroidered upon a description of an annual ritual known as “the lottery”. In a small village in New England of about 300 residents, the locals are in an excited yet nervous mood on June 27. Children gather stones as the adult townsfolk assemble for their annual event, which in the local tradition is practiced to ensure a good harvest (Old Man Warner quotes an old proverb: “Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon”), though there are some rumors that nearby communities in the north are talking about giving up the lottery, and some have done so.
