1990 Softcover Penguin Edition of The Lyre of Orpheus by Robertson Davies 472 pages. From backcover: The Cornish Foundation is trying under the directorship of Arthur Cornish when Arthur and his beguiling wife, Maria, Theotoky, decided to undertake a project worthy of Francis Cornish, whose vast fortune endows the Foundation. The remarkably unattractive, extraordinary talented music student Hulda Schnakenburg is commissions to complete E T A Hoffman's unfinished opera Arthur of Britain, or The Magnanimous, Cuckold; and the scholarly priest Simon Darcourt finds himself charged with writing the libretto. Complications both practical and emotional arise: the gypsy in Maria's blood rises with a vengeance; Darcourt stoops to petty crime; and various other indulge in perjury, blackmail and other unsavory pursuits. This is book three in the Cornish Trilogy.
