Originally published in The New Yorker on June 26, 1948, Shirley Jacksons The Lottery is one of the most controversial short stories the magazine has ever published, and has since been described as one of the most famous short stories in the history of American literature. Set on a beautiful Summer day in a rural farming community as villagers gather to observe an annual ritual in the town square, The Lottery portrays most townsfolk as demonstrating a mob mentality who abandon all reason. Written immediately after World War II, Shirley Jacksons story is a cautionary tale, depicting the dangers of following traditions without thinking of the consequences, and the dark side of human nature.
