After Herbert asked Morris if he already requested his three wishes, Morris replies with, “‘I have,’...and his blotchy face whitened” (Jacobs). With Morris’s face whitening, it tacitly tells the audience that something terrifying happened when Morris made his wishes. This foreshadows that something dreadful will happen once the Whites make their wishes. Question 2: Compare Mr. White’s feelings about the monkey’s paw when he makes the first wish, second wish, and third wish. How does his attitude change?
W. Jacobs, the White family is introduced to a magical monkey paw. The Paw grants three wishes per user, but is designed to grant the wish by the most tragic means. The Whites are informed of this, but even so, Mr. White uses the Paw to obtain 200 pounds to pay off his mortgage. “...[Mrs. White] asked breathlessly, ‘has anything happened to Herbert?’...‘He was caught in the machinery,’ said the visitor…‘in consideration...[the company] wishes to present you with a certain sum…’ [Mr. White's] dry lips shaped the words, ‘How much?’ ‘Two hundred pounds,’ was the answer.” What motivated Mr. White to wish for money, the story does not say, but the reader wonders why Mr. White wished on a cursed object when he was already familiar with the fact that the outcome could be of the last things he

In the short story the Monkey’s Paw, the Whites learned that greed can bring consequences that both are good and bad. And the thrill of horror is a great thing that some authors can bend to their will and create a suspenseful story, "It took me an hour to place my whole head within the opening so far that I could see him as he lay upon his bed."

Another example, arguably the most important, is the monkey’s paw, “His hand grasped the monkey’s paw and with a little shiver he wiped his hand on his coat and went up to bed” (Jacobs 177). The monkey’s paw symbolizes greed. In the story Mr. White physically holds onto his greed and bad things happen to him.

The story starts off with Mayzie, a lazy bird, complaining of how weary she is, having to stay at her nest all day to warm her egg up.
The Scopes “Monkey” Trial The year was 1925 and our country was recovering from brutal World War I. People desired for the country to return to normalcy and found comfort in religion. Peace and quiet was returning to main street, but not everyone enjoyed the peace and quiet. There was a small number of people who questioned it, disliked it and orchestrated a means to disrupt it.
