Summary of the Book 'A Daughter Of Eve':

Jean the Soldier and Eulalie the Devils Daughter is a French fairy tale collected by Achille Millien. The fable is classed as Aarne-Thompson type 313 (A girl helps the hero to flee) and revolves about a transformation chase. Others of this type include The Water Nixie The Foundling-Bird The Master Maid and The Two Kings Children. The motifs contain notable similarities to the legend of Jason and Medea in the tasks assigned to the hero and in the help from a woman connected with the villain.
