It’s medieval storytime! This week, a story from the ancient world is translated into the Middle Ages in the tale of Sir Orfeo.
This translation of Sir Orfeo was done by Jessie L. Weston as part of The Chief Middle English Poets: Selected Poems, published in 1914. It is available through Archive.org
You can also read Sir Orfeo through the TEAMS: Middle English Text Series.
