The concept of destiny is always part of human beings・ attitude towards life. One・s life is something under god・s control. God owns the supreme power to decide human beings・ fate. In this tale, the idea about destiny is quite the same; however, several examples show that people actually own the power to take the control over their lives or even other people・s. Duke Perotheus enables Arcita released from the prison by appealing to Theseus as a friend to both of them. The court women successfully plead with Theseus not to kill both of the two knights while go hunting in the woods. In terms of destiny, human beings in these cases in fact are able to save other people・s lives and keep the tragedies from happening. One・s destiny is not necessarily an unchangeable decision made by the unseen holy power above there but something we human beings can change ourselves.
