You may like to compare the story of Pandora with the story of Adam and Eve. Do you know any other similar stories from other cultures? The story of Pandora and her box comes from Ancient Greece and is very old. Because of this, there are several versions of the myth. Before humans there were the immortals the Gods and Titans.
Some say they were cousins of Zeus, king of the gods; he asked Prometheus to create man out of clay and water in many versions Hephaestus helps in this. Epimetheus had to create the animals and give them their gifts of courage, swiftness etc. He gave out all the gifts and had none left for Man. So Prometheus decides to make man stand upright, like the gods, and give them fire which Zeus did not want them to have — some say he had removed it as a punishment. Most agree that Zeus asked Hephaestus to make Pandora the first woman also out of earth and water, and he intended her to be a punishment.
Each god and goddess gave Pandora a gift talent , of beauty, charm, music etc but also others, like curiosity and persuasion — gifts that could be used for good or ill. Then Pandora was given a container — in the original Greek stories it was a jar and did not become a box until the Sixteenth century AD. Hesiod was a Greek poet who lived about BC.
And a box it has stayed to this day! It arose as a way of explaining why dreadful things happened, such as people getting sick and dying. Though some versions of this story say that the box was a real gift and the box held good things for mankind, which Pandora let escape from the box, and fly away forever, only catching Hope.
