In college I was required to read “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson. I’m sure it was a commentary on something, but no one in my class could figure out, even my professor. I then showed the story to several other people, yelling “Tell me what this means”.
Shirley Jackson can write, she can really write. She reminds me of Dorothy Parker, but her stories are even darker. It just left me with a very eerie feeling & is why I don’t usually like short stories or scary movies. Monsters, aliens, I can handle, but I hate seeing the darker sides of humanity without some kind of hero. If anyone knows what “The Lottery” means, please tell me
