Act II, Scenes i-iii

Pericles is rather glum in this scene, as he considers the turn of events. While he has won the tournament and made the best of his situation, he seems to feel that he is now at the mercy of fate, and things will just keep happening to him. It's the first time that we get the sense that Pericles experiences the events of his life as things that have happened to him, rather than things that he has had a hand in carrying out. It's also the first time we see that he may be going through a series of tests, experiencing misfortune to better buttress his moral fortitude.
