essay 5

Use Shirley Jackson’s, “The Lottery,” as your primary source for a 600 word essay. Focus on at least one literary element of your choosing. Select two sources (the primary and one secondary) to support your own voice in analyzing the work. Consider the following literary criticism for help in determining the direction you will take. Note that this criticism discusses theme, style, and symbolism in just these two paragraphs. Search the library database extensively for the quality secondary source that you think will best support your ideas. From: "The Lottery": Symbolic Tour de Force Helen E. Nebeker American Literature , Vol. 46, No. 1 (Mar., 1974), pp. 100-108 Published by: Duke University Press Article Stable URL: http://www.jstor.org/stable/2924129 Numerous critics have carefully discussed Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery" in terms of the scapegoat traditions of anthropology and literature, pointing out its obvious comment on the innate savagery of man lurking beneath his civilized trappings. Most acknowledge the power of the story, admitting that the psychological shock of the ritual murder in an atmosphere of modern, small-town normality cannot be easily forgotten. Nevertheless, beneath the praise of these critics frequently runs a current of uneasiness, a sense of having been defrauded in some way by the development of the story as a whole. Virgil Scott, for example, writes that ". . . the story leaves one uneasy because of the author's use of incidental symbolism.... the black box, the forgotten tuneless chant, the ritual salute-indeed the entire reconstruction of the mechanics of the lottery-fail to serve the story as they might have."1 Robert Heilman discovers similar technical difficulties. While approving the "deadpan narrative style" which screens us from the "horrifying nightmare" to come, he nevertheless believes that the unexpected shock of the ending "crowds out" the impact of Jackson's thematic revelation. He suggests that the "symbolic intention" should be evidenced earlier in the story because, while "to set us immediately on the track of the symbolism" might reduce the shock, it might, on the other hand, "result in a more durable story."' Brooks and Warren praise the story for its "web of observations about human nature" and the "all-toohuman tendency to seize upon a scapegoat," visiting upon it "cruelties that most of us seem to have dammed up within us. Specifics: MLA style in all aspects of your writing; 600 word minimum; Apply at least one literary element; Use one primary and one secondary source

The writer did exactly as the assignment instructed. A few grammar errors here and there that I can touch up. Otherwise the writer did a good job.
