The Mood And Atomosphere
The mood to Lamb To The Slaghter switches alot as the story goes on. The peaceful scene at the beggining of the story shows the mood of calmness. But as the story progresses when Patrick tells his wife about leaving her the mood becomes quite climatic. Finally at the end of the story the mood becomes pretty clear its almost diverting quoting on page 18 of the text.

"Personally i think the murder weapon is right here on the premises." " Probably right under our noses. What you think, Jack"? And in the other room, Mary Moloney began to giggle knowing that she made them eat it on purpose, to divert them from figuring out who did it .
