The Elf-Knight (Lady Isabel and the Elf-Knight)

[1959:] This ballad has many titles. Scholars know it as Lady Isobel and the Elf Knight or May Colvin, but An Outlandish Rover, The Highway Robber, The Old Beau, are among the titles preferred by folk singers. Child, who published it as No. 4 in his collection, noted it as one of the most widespread of ballads, with relatives in Poland, Germany, Scandinavia, France, the Netherlands (as Halewijn), and elsewhere, as far afield as Australia. It is also among the most persistent, being not infrequently sung today. Some scholars see in it traces of the Bluebeard story, others believe it may be an off-shoot of the legend of Judith and Holofernes. Perhaps more plausible is the theory that the ballad is descended from a folk-tale about a malevolent water-spirit who transforms himself into a knight and marries a girl with the intention of carrying her off to his watery home. [...] Within this century, besides our Norfolk set [EFS80], versions have been printed from Westmorland, Yorkshire, Herefordshire, Herts, Sussex, Wilts, and Somerset (Sharp reported that he had found twenty-three sets of it in that county), Devon, and Cornwall. [Also a] fragmentary version in Manx. (Penguin Book of English Folk Songs 120)

[1979:] [The False-hearted Knight] A man, or a demon in human guise, murders several women, but is eventually killed by a potential victim who is too clever for him. The theme can be simply stated, but it has held the popular imagination for centuries. Gradually, the original supernatural elements have been rationalized, apparently without reducing the story's appeal. Scores of versions of the ballad, which Professor Child called Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight, have been found, all over Europe. Several books have been written on the subject, including H. O. Nygard's 'The Ballad of Heer Halewijn' [...]. The earliest known English text is a street ballad of about 1710. (Palmer, Country 109)

[1996:] Words Trad. Tune written by Bob Johnson [...] A simple but vivid story, this ballad evokes many powerful images - a hazy afternoon in late June when the roses are full blown - Lady Isabel sitting alone in a castle room, with a shaft of sunlight playing on the tapestry that she is weaving - somewhere out there, beyond this world and the 'fields we know', the elf-knight sits, arrogant, dark and brooding. He blows his horn and enchants her - she breathes a wish for him - in an instant he has broken through the barrier - two worlds collide, reality and fantasy, good and evil ... (Notes Steeleye Span, 'Time')

Некроны прекрасно выразили мое отношене к гостям, которых пригласила не я:
"НАРУШИТЕЛЬ! Знай, что ты находишься на орбите мира, над которым у тебя нет никакой власти. Это запретные владения и за нарушение их границ грозит смерть. Таково наше наказание и наш приговор. Однако согласно древнему кодексу битвы мы вынуждены выдвинуть следующее предложение: уходи, и ты проживешь ещё долгую жизнь, прежде чем наши эмиссары найдут тебя вновь. Оставайся, незваный и нежеланный гость, и ты познаешь такие страдания, что золоченое божество в ужасе отвернется, дабы не видеть твою тяжкую участь. Выбирай свою судьбу и выбирай мудро. Умри сегодня, окутанный гордыней, или умри спустя годы, облаченный в мантию трусости. Нам всё равно. Прими свою судьбу!"
