[Archive] More on Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery"

What a great class discussion we had on "The Lottery," symbol, myth, and allegory! I especially liked the connections you made to other contemporary texts like the novel and film versions of The Hunger Games. Great critical thinking, all of you. An upper level student who overheard our discussion, Julie McGee, thought this pictured passage on scapegoating might be of interest to you, given our discussion's trajectory. Take a look and see if it enhances your understanding of Jackson's story. The sticky note provides the book title. Thanks, Julie!
