The Monkey's Paw Quote Analysis

Good Essays
The monkey's paw is just like the quote, “Be careful what you wish for it will surely be yours” (Baldwin 3). One of the ways is when the Whites wished for 200 pounds to pay off their home. How they got the money was by way of their son. He died at work due to falling into the machines. The Whites got a settlement for his death. It was 200 pounds which was the same amount the Whites had wished for. The Whites were sad but thought it was a coincidence. The second wish was to get their son back. Mrs. White made Mr. White wish for her son back; the man was not happy about it but did make that wish Then after the wish, Mrs. White ran straight for the door because she thought her son would be coming back to life and returning home.
