Pandora and Mr. White both had internal conflicts on weather or no to feed their curiosity. Pandora was conflicted on if she should open the box and Mr. White didn't know if he should take the Monkey's Paw out of the fire.
My son! He's dead!
I opened the box, but nothing happened to anyone. But there are now evil spirits!
The characters were both anxious about what the results to their actions would be. Pandora wanted to open the box and see what would happen. Mr. White wanted to know what the result of making a wish would be.
Both characters were warned that there would be consequences to their actions. Epimethius made Pandora aware of the evil spirts that would enter the world if she opened the box. The old man warned Mr. White that a bad thing will happen if
In "Monkey's Paw" Mr. White's son died when he made his wish. Unlike in "Pandora's Box", no one died when she opened the box. So, they both had different outcomes.
Mr. White was more tempted in the story than Pandora was. It was harder for Mr. White to control his curiosity because the monkey's paw was right in front of him. On the other hand, Pandora hid the box under her bed so her curiosity wouldn't get the best of her.
