Meanwhile, Palamon languishes in the prison tower. At last, whether by chance or destiny, Palamon  escapes and flees to a grove. That morning, by chance, Arcite goes to the same grove and, thinking  himself alone, recites his history aloud, blaming Juno, Mars, and especially Venus for his plight.  Palamon, who had not recognized Arcite, finally identifies him through his lament and leaps up,  swearing to kill Arcite for his treachery and law breaking. The two arrange to duel the following day. The next day, the men duel, dismissing all knightly ceremony. Theseus and his entourage arrive  upon the bloody scene. Theseus stops the duel and rebukes the knights for their behavior. Palamon  tells all, demanding that both be killed for their crimes, and Theseus swears that the wish will be  granted, but he relents when the women of his company beg mercy for the knights. Theseus

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
