They decided to jump to their death verses been burned alive and suffer a slow and painful death. Author Norman Cousin made great points on supporting his argument. The Dusens didn’t want to suffer a slow and painful death. Therefore, they decided on a self-inflicted death instead. Just maybe it should be a human right.

Conclusion A. Did the settings of the two stories create the opposite of what occurred Introduction I will be comparing and contrasting “The Lottery” By: Shirley Jackson and “The Rocking-Horse Winner” By: D.H. Lawrence. The Lottery is a story that leads us to believe that the people involved are there to win something. It does not tell you what winning actually in titles until the end, and Tess Hutchinson was stoned to death, after drawing the winning ticket. This story is filled with irony and morality just like The Rocking-Horse Winner.
Tradition: Nostalgia or Out-Dated Savagery? In “The Lottery”, Shirley Jackson’s character, Tessie Hutchinson, demonstrates a radical yet accurate perception of the impractical standards set on society due to tradition. The story presents an outlandish tradition of holding a lottery in which the winner get’s the prize of being stoned to death. On the clear and sunny morning of June twenty-seventh, Tessie Hutchinson was the ill-fated chosen one to die. Through this tradition, Jackson demonstrates the blind following of society’s illogical customs and illustrates the fact that people only rebel when the consequence brought about by culture directly affects them.
‘The Eve of St Agnes’ alludes to the legend of St Agnes’ Eve, where women saw visions of their future husband if they performed certain rituals before sleeping. The idea of rituals and visions adds an ambiguity to the tale, and the mysterious establishment of such visions generates a sense of mystic and magic. This hints at Negative Capability as this ethereal tale is incapable of being constricted by science, thereby creating a magic and wondrous atmosphere. Keats frequented in the idea of Negative Capability, and this may have prompted him to write about the mystical phenomena on St Agnes’ Eve, as he recurrently delved into the realms of idealism and fantasy. Furthermore, the notion that girls will witness their future husbands adds a romantic and passionate feeling, endorsing Keats’ adherence to romanticism instead of rationalism.
The setting sets the mood and atmosphere of the story. In “The Lottery”, by Shirley Jackson and “The Most Dangerous Game”, by Richard Connell, the authors use setting in very different ways. Jackson distracts the reader with her use of setting, while Connell draws the reader more into the story with his use of setting. More will be discussed about the two different ways the authors use setting throughout this essay. These two authors understand and realize the importance of setting in telling a story that holds the reader’s attention.
