The story is of two knights, Palamon and Arcite, imprisoned by Theseus after being found unconscious after a battle. They are held in a dungeon from which they can see into a courtyard or garden. One day Palamon, looking through the bars of his cell, sees Emily. Falling in love instantly, Palamon cries out, causing Arcite to ask his friend what is wrong.
