Answer

There are articles available about this story in the library's databases, print books, and eBooks.

For articles, follow the link below to our Databases by Subject Libguide and select the Literature tab.  From there you can select individual databases to search for articles.  Some good databases for this story are:

GVRL Literature eBooks: A search for lottery shirley jackson will retrieve an entry from Short Stories for Students which has a detailed analysis of the story.

Literary Reference Center: Click on Most Studied Works, then search for lottery.  Select the result that is found and then select literary criticism from the options on the left side of the screen.

Literature Resources from Gale: Select the Works Search tab at the top and search for lottery.  Select the result next to Shirley Jackson's name.

For books and eBooks, follow the link to the library catalog WorldCat below and search for shirley jackson.  There are not any books exclusively about The Lottery, but there are books available about Jackon's works and some of them will include some analysis of the story.
