(Truth, so called because truth is one). She
starts with St. George on his adventure, and being driven by a storm
into “Wandering Wood,” retires for the night to Hypocrisy's cell. St.
George quits the cell, leaving Una behind. In her search for him she is
caressed by a lion, who afterwards attends her. She next sleeps in the
hut of Superstition, and next morning meets Hypocrisy dressed as St.
George. As they journey together Sansloy meets them, exposes Hypocrisy,
kills the lion, and carries off Una on his steed to a wild forest. Una
fills the air with her shrieks, and is rescued by the fauns and satyrs,
who attempt to worship her, but, being restrained, pay adoration to her
ass. She is delivered from the satyrs and fauns by Sir Satyrane, and is
told by Archimago that St. George is dead, but subsequently hears that
he is the captive of Orgoglio. She goes to King Arthur for aid, and the
king both slays Orgoglio and rescues the knight. Una, now takes St.
George to the house of Holiness, where he is carefully nursed, and then
leads him to Eden, where their union is consummated. (
