The Lottery and Other Stories


What is the significance of Tessie's final scream, "It isn't fair, it isn't right"? What aspect of the lottery does she explicitly challenge; what aspect goes unquestioned?

Tess is questioning or protesting the lottery itself. She is questioning tradition, and also protesting the action that takes someone's life every year. In this case.... it is her life.
