Book 6, Canto 7 Summary

In typical discourteous fashion, Turpine sends two knights after Arthur and the Salvage Man to kill them. Arthur defeats them, and hunts Turpine down. After much trouble, Arthur hangs Turpine from a tree in a satisfying punishment for his appalling lack of courtesy. Calidore would definitely approve. Serena and Timias, having now recovered from their run-ins with the Blatant Beast, are on the road when they spy Mirabella, a beautiful woman being mistreated by two hideous creatures, Disdain and Scorn. Timias, ever a chivalrous and courteous squire, forgoes the courtesy of asking if the lady needs help and rushes in. He is quickly subdued. Serena thinks he is dead and flees into the woods.
