Introduction: This essay talks about a story in comparison about a chinese boy named Jin and a god named Monkey King both dealing with same struggle to fit in with their crowd. The boy Jin was born in China and spoke Mandarin at the time until he moved to San Francisco and had to deal with the problem of being a different nationality in a school full of white kids.

In the beginning of the story, Tan describes the mother as a stereotypical Chinese mother, who can be labeled as very strict. The mother was very determined, to make her child, Jing-Mei a success, “instantly famous...or a child prodigy.” Jing-Mei was forced to take piano lessons by a former piano teacher, who was deaf. Chinese children can be stereotyped as studious and obedient. Many Chinese families may fit into these stereotypes, but not every single one of them does and Tan exposes that in her story. Jing-Mei didn’t fit in the stereotype she, “ was so determined not to try, not to be anybody different, [she] learned to play only the most ear-splitting preludes, the most discordant hymns,” on the piano.
The main theme from the two stories are different. ‘The Monkey’s Paw’, deals with the disruption of a monkey’s paw to the harmonious family of the Whites and, was brought from India by Sergeant Morris. In addition, the story is a dark story, using deaths as the consequence. Fate played a big role in ‘the monkey’s paw’ because, “fate ruled people’s lives, and that those who interfered with it did so to their sorrow”. Told with intensity in its foreshadowing and complexity of the monkey’s paw itself.
