The whites sit at their home, when Sargent Morris arrives. they visit and talk about things and stories, then he tells them about the monkeys paw. Mrs. White attempts to burn the monkeys paw but Mr. White won’t let her. They later make their, or Mr. Whites first wish.
The rising action begins when MR. White the monkeys paw. The main part of the rising action is started when Mr. White makes his first wish. He wishes for something simple, not too greedy, and it was 200 pounds to pay off their house. But, in return for the money, their son gets caught in the machinery at work and dies.
In my opinion the turning point was when the Whites made their second wish, which was to bring back their dead son. The climax is when the unknown figure knocks at the door and Mrs. White goes to open it. Mrs. White does everything she can to open the door while Mr. White tries to find the claw.
The falling action begins when Mr. White makes their 3rd and final wish. His final wish was inferred to be the figure at the door going away, and to never come back. I believe this to be the final wish because as soon as Mr. White made it, the figure disappeared.
The story is finished off with the figure going away. We weren't given any information to what happened prior to the figures disappearance. I would infer Mr. and Mrs. White went to bed, traumatized, and the next morning destroyed the paw, or got rid of it so it couldn't be used again.
Superstition is a belief in something irrational. For example, wearing a hat to the chiefs game will increase their chance of winning. Or wearing a baseball glove to a baseball game will increase your chance of retrieving a ball. But in the real world, there is no proof of this working or if it even exists.
