    When they had caught a sight of Chanticleer. But fair Dame Pertelote assailed the ear Far louder than did Hasdrubal's good wife When that her husband bold had lost his life, And Roman legionaries burned Carthage… Pertelote's devotion to her husband is compared to that of Hasdrubal's wife. Pertelote's screams are likened to the laments of Hasdrubal's wife. Pertelote's beauty is compared to that of Hasdrubal's wife. Hasdrubal's wife's mannerisms are mimicked by Pertelote the hen. Pertelote's love for Chanticleer is mocked by Hasdrubal's wife.
