In both storys the characters were curious. In Pandoras box she was curious to find out what was in the box. In Monkeys Paw the characters were curious to see what would happen if they wished her son back to life.
In both storys the characters were not happy with the turn out. In Pandoras Box Pandora let out evil things and illness. In Monkeys Paw the characters wished back there sun but he turned into a rat.
Wish for our son back now!
Do not do it
The difference is that Pandoras Box was more posotive and had a better turn out than Monkeys Paw. Monkeys paw was all negative and when she wished for her son back it got worse.
In Pandoras Box Zues told Pandora not to open the box she didnt do it right away. In Monkeys Paw they were so eager to wish for there son back right away.
