Further information:
"King Orfeo is a retelling of the Greek Myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. The narrative is transposed into a feudal setting and given a happy ending. Orfeo successfully rescues Heurodis from the underworld and on his return regains his kingdom. The text has been designed to bring readers close to the poem as it would have been performed by a medieval poet." (from the publisher's notes)
