This poem is a collage of words taken from “The Monkey’s Paw” by William W. Jacobs. To make this poem, I simply took screenshots from a digital copy of “The Monkey’s Paw” and arranged them on Key Note. This story is about Mr. and Mrs. White and their story about a magical monkey’s paw. The aspect I chose to make my poem on is setting. I chose the gloomy, rainy background because on page 1, it states that “Outside, the night was cold and wet but a fire burned brightly in the small living room of Laburnum Villa.” Even though there is a warm fire inside the house, it is cold and wet outside. Also on page 1, it states that “ ‘Of all the wet, isolated places, this is the worst. The path is a bog and the roads a river.”. Since the story states that the environment outside of the White’s house it wet and flooded, it further proves that it has been raining excessively. I chose the sentences “the night was cold and wet” and “a fire burned brightly in the small living room of Laburnum Villa” in the poem to let the reader know that it is quite a gloomy and dark setting, but the Whites are quite warm and welcoming. This poem also includes “ ‘Listen to the wind,’ ” and “ ‘I’m listening,’. This dialog was said on page 1, when Mr. White and Herbert were playing chess. Not only does this represent the bond the father and son shares, but it gives a warm, family tone to the story. Also, the sentences “Twenty-one years ago,” and “old temples, and fakirs and jugglers,” were necessary for this poem because it shows the struggle Sergeant Major Morris went through to get this monkey paw, so it gives the story a sacred tone, as the monkeys paw is a sacred object. Lastly, I chose “two hundred pounds and his son” to wrap up the poem in a way that makes people wonder about what else happens in the story.
