After reading the short story, The Lottery by Shirley Jackson Summary, I believe I can offer up and give you a fresh if not unique take on the story of The Lottery. So please read on and see if you can follow along with my observations.
This short story starts off innocently enough but the end result is murder. Not only murder but an acceptable murder. From what I have garnered about the author, Shirley Jackson is that she led a troubled life full of mental illnesses. To me it is sad that Miss Jackson had had such a troubling life to begin with that she can bring this story into existence. But then after considering it for some time it occurred to me it is like another part of my own life experience.
