In the myth of Pyramus and Thisbe, Matthew of Vendôme incorporates numerous new and meaningful elements to the Ovidian original. For instance, Matthew of Vendôme connects the theme of «one soul in bodies twain» with the sentimental aspect of the dramatic event, emphasizing the paradoxical condition of young lovers, who would like to be joined as one. This wish of theirs, evidently unattainable during their earthly life, leads the two lovers to a desperate suicide fuelled by the hope in union after death.
