Child #4, Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight is kicking my butt.  I love this ballad!  So did Child, apparently, since he felt the need to write 30 pages of notes about it in contrast to the three paragraphs he wrote about The False Knight on the Road.  In the interest of keeping with the weekly updates and of keeping the posts to a reasonable size, I think I will divide this one into two parts: one on the the English and Scottish variations that Child published and another about his notes on versions of the story from other countries.  
The first should be up tomorrow morning and I’ll have the second one up next week.
