  • Long long ago, there lived a duke called Theseus, lord and ruler of the Athens. He had conquered many rich countries, and all the realm of the Amazons; the land of women which formerly was called Scythia. He performed many heroic feats throughout his time of knighthood. He took Queen Hippolyta's hand in marriage and brought her home to his country. He had slain Creon, and was given the responsibility of resolving conflict between two young knights whom he had imprisoned in a tower in Athens.
  • The two young knights imprisoned in a tower so great, so thick and strong, wallowing in despair.. One day, clear was the morning and bright was the sun.. Palamon, pacing himself back and forth in the dungeon, crying out and complaining to himself of his misery..The beautiful Emily in the garden amusing herself, Palamon reached the window and this beautiful girl caught his eye immediately. At the sight and sound of Palamon's cry, Arcite quickly brought his attention over to the breathtaking sight! Palamon fell upon his knees and prayed to Venus, the goddess of love. Arcite was hurt by the sight of her beauty, just as Palamon was taken to his knees. Where does each of their individual destinies lie?
  • One day, a worthy duke named Perotheus, a childhood friend to Theseus, had come to Athens to visit. Perothesis had cared for Arcite and did not wish to see him wallow in lifelong anguish in prison. He prayed and finally Duke Theseus had released him without ransom. On the condition that he did not return to Athens, and if ever in his life he were found in Athens, he should lose his head by the sword. Arcite feels death stab him through his heart so greatly because he is love struck. Surely, can love make a man a fool. Palamon is convinced that Venus (the goddess of love), has slain him with jealousy and fear of Arcite. Later on, Palamon with the help of a friend escapes prison and flees the city as fast as he can. Eventually they challenge each other to a duel between each man and their respected armies; they are discovered by Theseus.
