Book 1, Canto 6 Summary

The tale flips back to Una, now in the not so gentle care of Sansloy, who is nearly raped by her captor. She cries out and is heard by some gentle forest folk, including Satyrane, who all bend down to worship her. Sansloy is considerably disturbed by this display and flees the scene. Una is cared for by this gentle satyr until they come upon an old man. Seeking the Red Cross Knight, Una inquires about her protector, and is dismayed to hear that he was killed by a pagan knight.
