Theatre: Comus
Lost in the woods where Comus lurks

Some say no evil thing that walks by night,
In fog or fire, by lake or moorish fen,
Blue meagre hag, or stubborn unlaid ghost,
That breaks his magic chains at curfew time,
No goblin or swart faery of the mine,
Hath hurtful power o'er true virginity.

Comus: A Mask is a play written by John Milton, about a woman captured by Comus, a minor god of wine and lust, and rescued by her two brothers and a beneficient spirit in disguise.

The plot is similar to Circe trying to trap Odysseus in The Odyssey, but with the genders reversed.
