El cuento que Garcia Marquez llamo perfecto. La pata del mono de W.W. Jacobs es uno de los cuentos clasicos de la literatura del terror y en sus memorias, Gabriel García Marquez lo llama el cuento perfecto. Pero esta antologia de la literatura terrorifica se complementa con otra serie de pequenas obras maestras, que van desde obras de Lope de Vega, en un aspecto distinto de su produccion y de Ruben Darío, poeta de quien nadie sospecharía esta vena narrativa, hasta esa obra maestra que es El violin de Cremona de Hoffmann, obra que sirvio como base para uno de los actos de la opera de Offenbach. Esta antologia no solo aterrorizara a quien la oiga, en las voces de tres de nuestros grandes actores, sino ademas lo pondra al alcance de buena literatura.

The Monkey's Paw is a moral tale about how there's always a price to pay if you interfere with what's natural. It's not a mere lesson, though: the powerful mood of mourning and despair is what makes it so memorable.

About the Author

W. W. Jacobs (1863–1943) is considered a master of the macabre tale, mostly for his work The Monkey’s Paw, a classic horror short story. He was a master at weaving terror and suspense into scenes of everyday life. Nevertheless, his popularity in his own lifetime arose mostly due to his amusing maritime tales of life along the London docks.
