Agree on disagree? read the statement below then decide whether you agree or disagree with it. be prepared to support your opinion with details from the story. here's your discussion prompt the use of foreshadowing in "the monkey's paw" is so obvious that it gives the events away before they happen,
In the sentence when he says ''you know'' we are getting the feeling of sarcasm by him. Since the colonialism is about authority and dominance over the people or locations, it cannot be noble.
It is referring to the interests of one or more person and it is not a benign thing.
Although it is about ''self-respect in some way'' the dominance over someone isn't justified and people are aware of it, that is why I think that he was sarcastic.
hmm in my opinion, yes
I would rather not know my fate than knowing my fate and worrying all the time which is unpleasant, knowing your fate makes u feel uneasy all the time having the need to worry about so many things so it's better not to know your fate sometimes
The Monkey's Paw is a short story written by W. W. Jacobs and it narrates the relationship between a family and a monkey's paw that arrives to their life with no good news.
Even though terrible things are expected by the events narrated at the beginning of the story, it is possible to say that readers might not expect what happened. For instance, the money the family received was supposed to be from a disgrace, but they (nor readers) expected what happened. Due to this, I disagree.
I, without any second opinion, agree.

It is true that we cannot have heroes if we do not have monsters. This is because, in most stories, heroes are only heroes because they successfully face monsters. Monsters are usually the embodiment of evil, while heroes are the embodiment of goodness and courage. Because of this, the two of them exist as an indivisible dynamic in a story.
