The battle begins, and after much pageantry and heroic fighting, Palamon is badly wounded and  taken from the field. Arcite is declared the winner. Saturn sends a fury from Pluto to make Arcite's  horse shy. Wounded, Arcite is carried to Theseus' palace. As he lies dying, Arcite acknowledges that  he knows no person better than Palamon and begs Emilie to accept Palamon as her husband. Arcite  dies and Theseus arranges a great funeral for him. After a long period of mourning, Palamon and  Emilie are married and live out their lives in "a love unbroken." The Knight's Tale  perfectly fits the Knight himself: That is, he chooses a story filled with knights, love,  honor, chivalry, and adventure. The emphasis in the story is upon rules of honor and proper conduct.  Theseus, like the Knight himself, is an embodiment of the ideal Human Justice — reason.

    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.
