Well don't break into the money before i come back.
The setting was in England during the 1900's. It was cold dark night. It was also wet that night. The main characters were in their living room with the fire on.
During the story the son said"Well don't break into the money before I come back"...this Fore shadowed that he was going to die.
The mood that the story gives is an eerie feeling and a little bit of suspense."He heard the creaking of the bolt as it came slowly back, and at the same moment, he found the monkey's paw and frantically breathed his third and last wish."
Sounds like Arabian nights.
The theme for The monkey's paw is to not wish for things you don't need.“It seems to me I've got all I want.”
An example of a similie in the Monkey's is "as i wished it twisted in my hand like a snake".
Twards the middle of the book Mr white's wife mentioned the classic tale of Arabian Nights. “Sounds like the Arabian Nights,” said Mrs. White..."
