In this scene, Hera and Hermes give Pandora gifts. Hera gives Pandora the gift of beauty, while Hermes gives her the gift of curiosity, which comes back to haunt her later in her life
You know what, I can't take it! I'm opening that box!
In this scene, Zeus, the god of all gods, is giving Pandora a wedding gift since she is getting ready to marry Epimetheus. The gift is a beautiful box that She promises to never open, but it will soon drive Pandora crazy. "Promise me one thing. Never open the box," said Epimetheus
As her curiosity grew and grew, the only thing she could think about was that box. She wondered, "why would someone give me a box I cant open? I'm so confused!"
In this scene, after many days of torment and wonder, Pandora finally decides to open the box. "One day, however, the curiosity, so long stifled, overmastered her."
"Gently getting down on her hands and knees, she drew the casket from under the bed. Half fearfully and half eagerly she lifted the lid." Pandora, expecting to see gold, fine clothing, and exquisite jewelry, was very surprised to see what was hidden in this beautiful box. Her curiosity got the best of her.
As Pandora opened the box, despair and misery poured out of the box. Pain, death, fear, sickness, and all the evils of the world came out the box and spread around the world. With only one spirit left in the box, Pandora was able to close the box, and that last spirit was hope. "If I had thought more about your warning and less about my own desires, I could have controlled my curiosity. "
