    Paperback Å The Lottery Epub æ lottery epub, The Lottery KindleScience Imitating ArtJackson’s story was published in 1948 At the time and since it has been praised as insightful and criticised as obscure But almost 20 years later the French philosopher Rene Girard produced a theory which has a remarkable congruence with its theme and I think provides the best explanation of what Jackson was getting at in The LotteryGirard argued that our individual desires are never the product of some inner longing but always rather of the imitation of others We want what other people want This he called ‘mimetic desire’ and Girard went on to explore the implications of this insight for the next half centuryMimetic desire according to Girard has a predictable trajectory that is familiar to advertising executives around the world One person wants what another has just because the other has it This attracts the desire of others in a sort of exponential wave of wanting But wid

    Paperback Å The Lottery Epub æ lottery epub, The Lottery KindleI read this for my English class at CEGEP and started a reuired essay on it It seriously made me think of The Hunger Games at first but now I'm focused on another message how blindly people in society can follow certain rulestraditionsrituals without uestioning them I love how unprecise the setting is making us realize that it is so

    Paperback Å The Lottery Epub æ lottery epub, The Lottery KindleThis short story is my second classic short story this year and was first published in 1948 yet the story it told is timeless It is also horrificThe story begins in a happy cheerful day late in June the 27th which is traditionally the day for the Lottery This tradition has been going on annually for many years – even the oldest citizen in the town recalls that it had been occurring since before he could rememberAlthough some people are talking about other nearby towns that no longer have the Lottery the majority in this village seem to be traditionalists who feel that all kinds of bad things – including crop failures – would occur if they no longer held itThis was all very interesting and then one woman starts to speak out strongly against the process when her husband holds the winning ticket From there each family member draws a new ticket and only one of them ha

    Paperback Å The Lottery Epub æ lottery epub, The Lottery KindleA classic of stoic gothic horror yet with a twist that leaves the reader thinking Like any great short story this demonstrates the power of that medium by brutal efficiency Subtle but the Lottery also reveals Jackson's talent for characterizationA chilling allegory there is value in tradition but beware blind faith

    Paperback Å The Lottery Epub æ lottery epub, The Lottery KindleI really don't have much to say about this I liked that the majority of this little story was so simple and normal therefore making the end that much shocking I does have a lot of impact like the children picking out the stones at the beginning and then when he says let's get it over with uick and they all rush to the stones that brought the emotion intended in such a simple storyBut at the same time what I love about classics like this is the discussion that they invoke And I just don't have a lot to say a

    Paperback Å The Lottery Epub æ lottery epub, The Lottery KindleThis seemingly innocuous short story wafted into my consciousness with a halcyon pastoral scene an English village on a summer's day suffused with the scent of blossoming flowers and fresh cut grass I could almost taste the cucumber sandwiches and the jam sconesBut there is a sub level to the seemingly twee storyline An allegory stealthily unfolds that immediately put me in mind of The Lord of the FliesShirley Jackson's fictitious village like the island in William Golding's book seems to serve as a microcosm of lifeHer prose is crisp; the piece is very well written and view spoilerI didn't anticipate the dystopian style ending hide spoiler

    Paperback Å The Lottery Epub æ lottery epub, The Lottery KindleA short story with a nasty sting that leaves you uestioning human nature I also note now that this is review #666 Like Ursula Le Guin’s The Ones Who Walked Away from Omelas which I reviewed HERE it opens idyllically“ The morning of June 27th was clear and sunny with the fresh warmth of a full summer day; the flowers were blossoming profusely and the grass was richly green The people of the village began to gather” in this case for the annual public lottery And like Omelas there is vague foreshadowing of some darker taboo universally known but reluctantly accepted What little challenge there is is uickly uashed The power of crowds consensus community or mobWhat made
