The act of giving or leaving personal property by a will

Industrial Revolution from the late 1700s to the mid-1800s had built many factories in cities. The way Herberts factory reacts to his death speaks not only to the dangerous working conditions in factories at the time, but also to the rise of feelings of alienation brought by increased industrialization and mechanization.

The Monkeys Paw discuss about whether supernatural forces are at work or not. The story brings the conflicts that the paw really is magic and directly causes Herbert White's death or that the paw isn't magic and Herbert's death just happens to coincide with Mr. White's wish for two hundred pounds.

Karims left his personal property, love to his family. The story end up with Karims last will. Karim wrote the letter and he wish that his family can live happily although he had leave them.
