Not at all what I thought. There's very little relation to the Orpheus story. Instead it's a story of fairy abduction. Fun and fairly easy read in Middle English. ( )

PREFACE (to the second edition)
Twelve years have passed since this book was first published: the call for a second edition has enabled me not only to correct a number of misprints and small errors, but also to include references to recent work and to discuss some of the points raised in reviews of the first edition.
