Robin Hood is the archetypal English folk hero; a courteous, pious and swashbuckling outlaw of the mediæval era who, in modern versions of the legend, is famous for robbing the rich to feed the poor and fighting against injustice and tyranny. He operates with his “seven score” (140 strong) group of fellow outlawed yeomen – named the Merry Men. He and his band are usually associated with Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire.     The Victorian era generated its own distinct versions of Robin Hood. The traditional tales were often adapted for children, most notably in Howard Pyle’s The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood. These versions firmly stamp Robin as a staunch philanthropist, a man who takes from the rich to give to the poor.

"THE MERRY ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD - Top Classic Novels" This edition included NEW illustrations + Clickable Table of Contents for both the list of included books and their respective chapters. Navigation couldn't be easier. The text and chapters are perfectly set up to match the layout and feel of a physical copy, rather than being haphazardly thrown together for a quick release. The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood of Great Renown in Nottinghamshire is an 1883 novel by the American illustrator and writer Howard Pyle. Consisting of a series of episodes in the story of the English outlaw Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men, the novel compiles traditional material into a coherent narrative in a colorful, invented "old English" idiom that preserves some flavor of the ballads, and adapts it for children. The novel is notable for taking the subject of Robin Hood, which had been increasingly popular through the 19th century, in a new direction that influenced later writers, artists, . . .

Who hasnt heard of Robin Hood and his merry band of outlaws in Sherwood Forest? In this book you meet them all - including the powerful Little John, courageous Will Scarlet, musical Allan a Dale, and sly Friar Tuck. Howard Pyle offers what is probably the most complete and best collection of Robin Hood tales. All the old favorites are included - Little John and his quarter-­staff toppling Robin into the water, Robin winning the golden arrow at Nottinghams archery contest, and the Sheriff being outsmarted in numerous attempts to capture Robin. But these are just the tip of the iceberg - this book is chock-­full of entertaining merry adventures. The medieval setting is portrayed beautifully, including the vast gulf between the upper and lower classes of society, the corruption and greed of the nobility, and the hypocrisy of the medieval Roman Catholic church where religion has degenerated to mere outward rituals. Even the language is somewhat antiquated, which initially seems . . .

ABOUT THE BOOK I had heard of Robin Hood even before I read about Robin Hood, courtesy my grandmother. After all, the whole concept of a capped archer and his merry men “taking from the rich to give to the poor” was an attractive proposition for a bedside story. It was only later that I realized that even “taking from the rich” amounted to crime of some sorts. It was some years later that I came across The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood. Like many before me, and am sure, like many in future, I enjoyed it immensely. From Robin’s transformation from a common man to outlaw, to the many memorable characters like Little John, Friar Tuck and the villainous Sheriff of Nottingham, the book captivated me. Of course, no description of Howard Pyle’s work is complete without mention of the wonderful illustrations that helped the reader visualize the “merry adventures.­” However, I must warn the reader that the language is a bit archaic and may seem difficult at first.
