Primarily, the story tells you about the family’s life before all of the trouble and nonsense brought about by the monkey’s paw; before a lesson is learned, you must make a mistake. From before the characters in the story had to learn the theme, the author expressed, “Father and son playing chess; whose ideas of the game involved some very unusual moves… the white haired old lady knitting by the fire” (1). This quote shows how calm and tranquil everything was before the monkey’s paw came about to mess up the lives of the acclimated family. The description taken from the exposition of the story contrasts with what happens when they wish upon the monkey’s paw, and how they learn the lesson of ‘be careful what you wish for’. Secondly, after the family makes their first wish for £200, they are visited by a man who had come to inform them that their son had died, and that the company must present the family with exactly £200, or otherwise known as what they wished for.
Without Henry’s father’s accustomed Chinese beliefs, Henry may have never liked jazz or became so infatuated with a Japanese girl named Keiko. Mainly, he liked these activities because they were different from his father’s traditional views. Throughout the novel their relationship never recovered; in fact, it only became worse. The relationship between Henry and his father never improved because they never communicated, nor
That Chink at Golden Gulch (Film 1910) It is one of the D.W. Griffith’s one-reelers made for Biograph which deal with “other race” subjects, this time the protagonist being a Chinese. Charley Lee (Anthony O’Sullivan in yellowface), “the poor chink” (according to the “Biograph Bulletin”), works at miners’ hamlet Golden Gulch as a laundryman (of course!). His old father returns to their homeland, the “Flowery Kingdom.” Before leaving, the father warns the son not to cut his pigtail, considered a sacred thing; otherwise he will be treated as an outcast among the people of his own culture and will not be allowed to return to China before his death – the journey back home before death every Chinese should do. The son, left alone, feels very down.
In The Outsiders, S.E Hinton presents the idea that teenagers can break through stereotypes if they look at life through another perspective; as shown in the book when Ponyboy starts to talk to Cherry and Randy and realizes the stereotypes about them are false. One very important scene that reveals the theme is when Ponyboy and the the rest of his group go to the movies and meet two Socs, Cherry and Marcia. As the movie goes on, Ponyboy and Cherry continue to talk and realize that their prior thoughts they had about each other and each other’s group is false. For example, when Cherry says, that “things are rough all over” (Hinton 35). Stereotypically Socs have money, cars, and are supposed to have this perfect life
He mentions that these men began to hear strange echoes and music, which frightens them. One night they hear something in resemblance to a cocktail party, becoming delusional they hear talking monkeys and trees. They then proceed to order air strikes to hit everything they can see, but the next day they still hear these voices. Sanders approaches O’Brien and admits to him that some parts were made up by him. This leads O’Brien to claim that the moral of a story cannot be separated from the actual story and that the significance of a story being true or not is whether or not you believe it in your stomach.
In W.W Jacob’s short story “The Monkey’s Paw,” there are many instances of foreshadowing in order to keep readers engaged and on the edge of their seats. In part one of “The Monkey’ Paw’” the White family is introduced to the monkey’s paw by, family, friend Sergeant Major Morris. Major Morris explains the dire outcome of using the paw. Mrs. White asks if anyone has used the paw before and Major Morris responds with “The first man used his wishes, yes,”...”I don 't know what his first two wishes were, but the third was for death. Thats how I got the paw.” (Jacobs 34-35) This shows that if the family decides to use the paw then then there may be dreadful consequences.
Each timelines complete history is being stored in the card men’s brains causing them to go insane. This is that delicious cherry on top of the sundae you ordered for after the main course.

The original text is Journey to the West written by Cheng’en Wu in the Ming dynasty. The Journey to the West is one of the Four Classics, it created a romantic world mixed with the reality, describing the stories of the Monkey king’s uproar in the Heaven, and the Tang Monk journey to the West for begging Buddhist sutra to bring it back to China for eliminating pain of the publics. It will be a TV show, and the main clew of the story is about an anti-corruption 5-members group organized by the Chinese Communist Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCPCCDI), targets to tour for anti-corruption movement. It will be partial faithful to the original text, similar with its linear narrative structure and characteristics but will absolutely reverse all sequences to flashback to show the possible ideas that implied within the original text, and the details well be demonstrated in the following paragraphs. The original text was written in the linear narrative
I could feel the concoction working as Tupac said, “this boy has been placed under this curse’s knife, so bring him back to his old life!” With a sploop, a fizz, and a zoobidy bop. I was me again with a normal set of speech. No more rapping, no more being trapped, but also no more Dr Dre socks to wear. No more socks to get me cute girls. No more socks to invite me to slumber parties and talk about cute boys.
