In "The Last Leaf" by O.Henry, what is (Johnsy's fancy) & setting? What is the significance of the title (Berham masterpiece)?
I'm afraid I don't completely understand your question -- why the things in parentheses? I'll try to answer, let me know if you want to clarify what you mean.
The setting of the story in Greenwich Village in New York City. This was a place where many artists and people like that lived in these days.
Johnsy's fancy (fancy meaning something one imagines, in this case) is that she will die when the last leaf on the ivy vine falls.
This is the significance of the title. It refers to the idea that she would die when the leaf fell and it refers to the leaf that Behrman painted. This is Behrman's masterpiece -- the leaf that was so life-like that it convinced Johnsy to live.
