In this comic Cornish version of Rumpelstiltskin, our heroine is Duffy the housemaid. Duffy hates knitting and spinning, but she can only stay at the Duke’s house if she knits and spins. The devil hears Duffy complaining makes a deal with her. The devil will spin and knit for Duffy for three years, and if Duffy can’t guess the devil’s name at the end of three years, then the devil will take her away. Duffy readily agrees, and begins enjoying the easy life at the Duke’s. The Duke himself is so impressed with Duffy’s work that he marries her. But when the end of three years is up, what is Duffy to do? Can she trick the devil into telling her his name?
