Shirley Jackson told: "the idea for "The Lottery" had come to me while I was pushing my daughter up the hill in her stroller—it was, as I say, a warm morning, and the hill was steep, and besides my daughter, the stroller held the day’s groceries—and perhaps the effort of that last 50 yards up the hill put an edge to the story.”
"The Lottery" is a short story written by Shirley Jackson in which members of a small community join together every year to follow a tradition according to which, randomly, the destiny of one of them is decided. The raffler winner is stoned to the dead to ensure prosperity for the whole village. The title is a clear instance of irony.
After undergoing mental preparation and training, <u>activists made considerations about the timing of holiday shopping seasons as well as the mayoral election</u>.There will be freedom in Birmingham, even without the support of the church.
In literature as well as in art, there are many natural elements such as the sun, the stars, the flowers, etc. that are used symbolically and also to beautify the imagery.
In the case of both the sunrise and sunset, we can understand that these represent a cycle, the beginning and the end of something or somebody.
Thus, in the case of "Because I Could Not Stop for Death", the image of the setting sun is not described in great detail because the context of the poem gives us the idea of a cycle that ends, that is to say death, and death itself does not require much description.
