Everything you need to understand or teach Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl.
Mary Maloney is a housewife in her sixth month of pregnancy. When her husband comes home from work with bad news—that he is leaving her—she ceases to be herself for a few moments. Stunned by her husband’s revelation, Mary goes to the freezer and gets a leg of lamb as if she could just carry on with her evening and cook dinner. When she comes up from the basement, though, she smashes her husband’s head in with the leg of lamb.
