This chapter describes a vision: of Helen fleeing in the night, arriving desperate and exhausted at the beach, a long way from her palace, and being joined by Paris, then the love scene, resistance finally swept away, and the ultimate flight for the two lovers after a despairing struggle. It also describes how the author was able to put this vision later into a musical piece.
