In an interlude, the god Pluto and his wife, Proserpina, discuss the situation involving January and  May. Pluto admits that he will restore January's sight because women are so deceitful, but he wants  to wait until just the right moment to do so. His wife, Prosepina, says men are so lecherous that she  will provide May with a believable excuse when he does.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
