The story that best fits in the horror genre is The Monkey’s Paw because the story uses the elements suspense, fear, and mystery/ unknown. The Monkey’s Paw [by W.W. Jacobs] fits in the horror genre for a number of reasons. For example, the fact that S.M. Morris has a cursed monkey’s paw that grants wishes and gives it to the White Family. “ ‘Well, wish for two hundred pounds then…’ .” (W.W. Jacobs, 148.)
Have you ever wished for a million dollars? In “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs, a family comes across a Sgt. from the military who gives them a monkey's paw. Despite being warned, the family uses the magical paw to make wishes. Bad things then happen to them.
Dr. Jekyll tells the power of evil Mr. Hyde through a letter he wrote to Mr. Utterson, “I began to be aware of a change in the temper of my though, a greater boldness, a contempt of danger, a solution of the bonds of obligation. I looked down; my clothes hung formlessly on my shrunken limbs; the hand that lay on my knee was corded and hairy. I was once more Edward Hyde,” (78). Dr. Jekyll was unable to control his dark self spontaneously, without the aid of his potion and while he was wide awake. Jekyll’s theory of dual nature, is humans being half criminal, and half virtuous.
The Horror in the Monkey’s Paw The Monkey’s Paw, is a horror masterpiece. Written by W. W. Jacobs’, The short story has three main aspects, the first wish, the second wish, and the last.

The characters in “The Tell Tale Heart” and “The Monkeys Paw” have to deal with the consequences of their actions. “The Monkey’s Paw” is a story about a paw that has the power to grant 3 wishes, but unfortunately, there is great mystery surrounding the monkey’s paw, and how these wishes will be granted.

The plot of this novel shifts around power and what the result is of having it fall into the wrong hands. While the objects seemed harmless, their symbolism (usually depicted in a negative manner) was a major influence to the children and overall outcome of the novel. Betwixt the relationship of power and symbols found within the Lord of the Flies one could use these attributes to manipulate and conquer. The use of power and symbolism create a magnificent tale of a group of children who descend into savagery as they can no longer tell what is logical and the price of this dire
In both of the stories of “The Tell Tale Heart” and “The Monkey`s Paw” contain fear. I came up with three examples and an explanation for fear in both stories. From the “The Tell Tale Heart” on page 89 in lines 15-16 the man said, “I made up my mind to take the life of the old man.” That made me scared because was he really going to kill him?

I am assuming the village they live in is small; thus, is easy for them to interact with one another. I am not sure about their actual friendship, yet it is possible there has been problems between Mr. White and Morris in the

Non-human primate infants are usually seen in the wild interacting strictly with their mothers. The research question I proposed was, do infants interact mainly with their mothers, or do the males sometimes carry and feed the infants as well? In my research I wanted to observe all species that I saw. This included White Faced Capuchin Monkeys, Howler Monkeys, and Spider Monkeys. The first species I studied was the Cebus capucinus (white faced capuchin monkey) The white-headed capuchin is a diurnal and arboreal animal.
