Foreshadowing in "The Lottery"
"Mr.Summers spoke frequently to the villagers about making a new
box, but no one liked to upset even as much as as represented by the
Black Box
" (24)
"Just as Mr.Summers finally left off talking and turned to the assembled
villagers,
Mrs. Hutchinson
came hurriedly along the path to the square.." (25)
"I wish they'd
hurry

" (27)

"Bobby Martin had already stuffed his pockets full of stones, and the
other boys soon followed his example, selecting the smoothest and
roundest
stones
" (23)
Conclusion
There were several examples of foreshadowing

subtle hints as to what will happen. Until the
end of the story we are unaware of what happens to the winner of
the

lottery.
