Quote and Analysis for Harrison Bergeron
Quote: "Harrison Bergeron, age fourteen," she said in a grackle squawk, "has just escaped from jail, where he was held on suspicion of plotting to overthrow the government. He is a genius and an athlete, is under-handicapped, and should be regarded as extremely dangerous” (Vonnegut 2).
Analysis: Considering that the government is enforcing laws to make the people in the community all equal is making the people rebel against them. This is an example of the government trying to enforce equality on Harrison by putting him in those handicaps that make him look like a junkyard.
Quote Analysis for The Lottery
Quote: “ Mr. Summers spoke frequently to the villagers about making a new box, but no one liked the idea to change the tradition as it was represented by the black box” (Jackson 1).
Analysis: Considering that the community is very quiet about topic on the Black box they are afraid on what would happen if they change the tradition with the black box. This quote shows how much the community has been brainwashed by this tradition and how they are acting around a box that decides their fate.
