The Lottery and Other Stories Summary and Analysis of Part III Inscription

This next quotation from Glanvil’s book describes the confession of Margaret Jackson to being seduced by the devil and practicing witchcraft. One day in January, she awakened to discover her husband next to her, though he had been deceased for many years. The man disappears and is assumed to be the devil. This quotation thus furthers the themes of fantasy and witchcraft.
