What we thought
As a group we thought that the story was very moving. We also thought that the story thought I thought us a lesson what ti do if you are granted some wishes. We wouldn't recommend bringing back a dead person that has been shredded, that would be painful to look at.
Three literary devices ?
The monkey paw moves like a snake in Mr. White's hand.
It makes a comparison to the Arabian Nights
The wind howled at the man.
Mr. White is an elderly man with a white beard, he's frightened when Herbert knocks at the door.
Mrs. White is an elderly woman who is strong and smarter than Mr. White.
We don't know a lot about Herbert but, he's smart and cheerful.
What point of view
Third person omniscient because it gives every ones thoughts and feelings
