In both of the stories the main characters try to hide something that they know will cause something bad. So they try to hide it in random places like under a bed and in"The Monkeys Paw", the Sargent throws it in the fire so no one gets it. When Sargent thru it into the fire Mr white grabbed it so he can get the power.
At the end of the stories both of the main characters fail and feel very very bad about it.In"The Monkeys Paw", Mr.White tried to get the after it was thrown into the fire and got it and then regretted it later in the story.
In both "Pandora's Box"and "The Monkey's Paw"Curiosity ruled.But in"Pandora's Box"Pandora hid the box under her bed to stop her curiosity. On the other hand,in"The Monkeys Paw",the characters just left the paw out in the open.
Another difference is that in"The Monkeys Paw", at the end someone dies and in the other story no one does. In"Pandora's Box", no one died in this story but they did release something very bad.
