Love and caring can make us rich, but so can loss. In "The Gift of the Magi" by O. Henry tells the story of a young growing couple that is rich in love, but poor in money. I feel that O. Henry is try to prove a point that money isn't everything. I also think that he was trying to give the reader a plot twist. He does this buy telling us that Della's hair and Jim's watch but then they ending up selling their respective prized processions for a addition to the others. Della and Jim are the struggling couple faced with poverty during the early 1900s, in England. This isn't the first time that I have read "The Gift of the Magi", but every time I read it, it never ceases to give me the feeling that love means more than money. Although every time I read it, it gets duller and duller only because I've read it more than once. The only other short story that this reminds me of is "The Most Dangerous Game" because every year that I have read "The Gift of the Magi", I have followed it with "The Most Dangerous Game". I think that this is an extremely well written piece that proves the point very well that love and caring means more than money.
