Someone says lottery is a kind of tax collected by the government on peoples’ luck and desire to be rich. In another aspect, lottery is also gambling, and it could make people to be a millionaire in a night if the person is lucky enough, however, it has a negative effect that it causes inequality, crimes and so on. It is known that everyone always gets what one deserves and how much one gets depend on how hard one works. It takes out that spending time on lottery is useless and a waste of time and human energy. Lottery can cause a negative atmosphere, or say, mind in the society. However, there exists some opponents who think that lottery has little influence on people’s daily life and it makes no sense. On explaining this point in detail, I want to define the negative atmosphere at first. The atmosphere is the laziness and workless of the society.
As a human being, we all have known that human has its natural characteristics and weakness and playing lottery will develop the weakness and promote it to be a social issue. Laziness is one of the biggest weaknesses of human, and people enjoy using the leisure on entertainment or relax themselves. There is a belief in most peoples’ mind that lottery is the person’s own business and has nothing to do with other persons. Lottery is one of the best things that has ever happened to human kind especially those that dream high and but their dreams don’t come to life because they don’t have what it takes to make it happen. Lotteries are in various categories such as sweep stakes, scratch off, the Jackpot and even the green card lottery. The lottery that is being focused in this argument is the jackpot one. The Lottery A review of both stories In this essay I will take the time to review two stories both of the fiction nature.
I will discuss the conflicts of both stories as well as the plot structure. I will talk about the characters and give my point of view. Both stories are very thought provoking which should make this very interesting to compare and contrast. Both short stories respectively portray two similar types of foreshadowing where one is random the other is premeditated, which leads these stories to their very surprising dramatic climax that is held until the end of each story. Jackson and O’Connor both use two characters to depict man having the power to manipulate truth and objection into something people accept. Shirley Jackson “The Lottery” Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery” depicts life in a provincial American town with rigid social norms. His name corresponds with the seasonal setting of “The Lottery,” too, drawing attention to the importance of his character in shaping the theme of the story. The term itself suggests one major theme: the stress on the concrete individual existence and, consequently, on subjectivity, individual freedom, and choice. State lotteries have been around for awhile to help build up state revenue.
In such things as scratch off instant tickets or daily number drawings. To some these things are evil, but to some others who’s lives aren’t the greatest, it’s a shimmer of hope that most people don’t have. Now the thing about the lottery is a lot of people don’t win, but those few that do could be put into a nice situation that they’ve never been in before. Her writing style effectively allows the reader to pass a judgment on themselves and the society in which they live. Jackson is making a comparison to human nature. It is prominent in all human civilizations to take a chance as a source of entertainment and as this chance is taken, something is both won and lost. The children, who have just finished school, are playing while waiting on their parents to meet them in the square and are gathering up rocks into a pile off to the side. Everyone enters the square and the parents call their children over to stand with the family. Graves, the men who conduct the lottery, arrive in the square with the black box.

Some people urge that playing lottery is a bad idea because people end up getting addicted to it, or that it affects them psychologically. They could lose friendships and family member’s trust in some way. This could be true to some extent, but the possibilities of what happens after people win the lottery is in their hands. People buy lottery tickets and spend their money on it for all sorts of reasons. They want to pay off their bills, go to vacations, buy a car, or maybe a new home whatever situation they are in people have hope that lottery can fix it. It is some kind of a rescue fantasy. It’s like their money is buying some kind of hope for them.
