A question on "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson ?
I am writing an essay explaining how the use of literary devices creates a sense of horror.
I wrote down things like "withheld knowledge" (that the author not telling readers the "prize" of the lottery)
but I need to rewrite it because I did not explain "how does this create a sense of horror."
What should I do?
Thanks!
