English 2-5

Please read the story attached “The Lottery” put your critical thinking skills to use and write half a Page about below topic:
One of the messages that Jackson suggests in the story is that all people are savage.  Is Jackson correct in her suggestion that people are savage?  Why or why not?  Explain your answer, and, if possible, use evidence from the story to support your argument.
*Special Note (Please read!):  In the past, some students have misunderstood the story and thought that the question of this story is whether the villagers in the story are savage or not.  The question is not whether the people in this village are savage, but if people, in reality, are savage.  I think people, at times, get stuck on analyzing the wrong set of people.  The villagers in the story “The Lottery” are DEFINITELY savage.  Jackson purposefully writes them as such in an attempt to prove her point that people, in reality, are inherently savage.  There are MANY examples in “The Lottery” that demonstrate just how savage these people are, and, if you missed this, you may need to do a closer reading of the story and a review of the PowerPoint for this lecture.  It is important that all of you understand that these villagers know right from wrong, that this is not simply a case of self preservation, and that they do enjoy the kill, or, more appropriately, the overkill. These people know exactly what they are doing. The last words of the story are “…they were upon her” (Jackson 7).  Now, whether you agree or disagree with Jackson is completely up to you, but the debate here is not on the savageness of the villagers in the story.
