Robin Hood Booklist
This is a reading list involving the Robin Hood legend.
Copies of this FAQ may be obtained by anonymous ftp to rtfm.mit.edu
under pub/usenet/news.answers/books/robin-hood. Or, send email to

message, leaving the subject line empty.
My criterion for these books is that it be concerned with the Robin
Hood legend in some way. I have three basic categories: fiction,
poetry, and non-fiction. There are a good number of research and
old-manuscript references listed here that are probably unavailable
except through a University-level library. I have split the books up
into the following categories:
* Medieval Fiction: often published at any point in time, but
discussing texts from this period. I've arbitrarily put everything
pre 1600 in this section, although I realize this isn't the
* Early Fiction (1600-1899): involves any fiction published
during this time. If I have an 18th century commentary on a 15th
century work, that goes here. (If it's a 18th century
republication of something from prior to 1600, let me know and I
will move it to the above category.)
* Modern Fiction (1900-present): includes all fictionalized
accounts published in this century.
* Poetry: includes all poetic versions of the Robin Hood legend,
regardless of when (first) published or written.
* Non-Fiction and Research: includes analyses of the Robin Hood
legend: how it started, what purpose it filled, original texts,
etc. Some of the texts that republish old work but include an
analysis may have been mistakenly filed in one of the fiction
categories above; let me know if this is the case.
I encourage you to send in any comments you have on a particular book
for inclusion. I'd like to be able to give a sense of what the book
offers. In addition, if you have references to books on Robin Hood
that are *not* listed here, please send them to me for inclusion.
Disclaimer: I have not vouched for the accuracy of each and every
entry in this list. I would like also to indicate which books are no
longer in print. If you find mistakes or have additional information
on a reference, by all means, let me know. It might take me a while,
but it _will_ get put in ;-).

marvellous Robin of Sherwood TV series. 'A magical retelling of the
legend of Robin Hood'. Well written, great characters, gives a good
impression of what it must have been like in mediaeval times, the
mysticism and sorcery fits in, great sense of humour.
Chase, Nicholas. _Locksley_. St. Martins/Marek, New York. 1983. ISBN
0-312-49428-9. A highly improbable and highly entertaining retelling
of the legend as it "might have actually happened." Good reading. Of
interest is to note that 'Nicholas Chase' is a nom de plume for the
brothers Hyde; Anthony (The Red Fox, China Lake, Formosa Straights)
and Christopher (Maxwell's Train, Whisperland, Hard Target and many
others). The opening for the Costner/Robin Hood film appears to have
been inspired by this novel, as well.

worth getting. A nicely told version of the Robin Hood legend.
Doherty, P. C. _The Assassin in the Greenwood_ (1993?), is a telling
of the death of Robin Hood, and how an "under-sheriff" of Nottingham
masqueraded as Robin to discredit him. The book is interesting in that
it has a brief afterword by the author. In it, he claims that Robin
was not a contemporary of Richard I (and John), but of Edward I. He
suggests that Robin was a supporter of Simon de Montfort's revolt
against the king in the mid-13th century and fled to Sherwood forest
after the revolt failed. The plot is not that great, but the setting
is well-rendered (including the tendency to violence that was said to
be common in those days).

Goldman, James, _Robin and Marian_ (New York, Bantam Books, 1976). The
major portion of this book is Goldman's original screenplay for the
movie , which starred Audrey Hepburn (Maid Marian), Sean Connery
(Robin Hood), Robert Shaw (Sheriff of Nottingham), Nicol Williamson
(Little John), and Richard Harris (King Richard). Also included in the
volume are 3 short essays. 'Where Have All the Heroes Gone?' laments
the lack of heroes with High Principles and Noble Dreams, muses on
heroes grown old--Ulysses, Ben Hogan, Fritz Kreisler--and sets up his
premises/questions: What happened to Robin and Marian after they had
grown old? (not doddering, but fifty-something), and Why do some of
the versions of the myth have Marian killing Robin?. 'What All the
Singing Was About' gives some historical background on the Robin Hood
myth and why it has survived some 700 years and still has the power to
move us. 'Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Screenplays and
Were Afraid to Ask" is his insider's view of writing the screenplay,
selling it, and making the movie.

0-380-70995-3. _Robin and the King_, 1993, Avon Books, NY ISBN
0-380-70996-1. Excellent, well thought out story. Placed during the
Norman invasion of 1066. Unusual depth of characterization, you get a
real feel for what the clash between the Saxons and Normans must have
been like. Second book is set in both France, to where Robin has been
exiled but still serves the King, and England.

(New York, N.Y., U.S.A. : Penguin, 1991). A collection of thirteen

quite funny at times.
Harvey, George Cockburn, ed. and Edwin John Prittie, illus. _Robin
Hood_. (Chicago: John C. Winston Co., 1923.) Black and White
illustrations, with several color ones. All done by Prittie. Large
print edition, so I assume for children. Some unfamiliar words are
noted with asterisk and defined at bottom of page. Example:
hinds=laborers. Book includes an Appendix with info about the real
Robin Hood. This info is in the form of a "quotation from the
abridgment of Ritson's Life of Robin Hoo, as given by Gutch" (345).
Also in the Appendix is the ballad "Robin Hood and Allin'A' Dale."

Heal, Edith, _Robin Hood_. Introduction by Philip Allen, illustrated
by Dan Content. Rand McNally & Co. Windermere Series, copyright 1928,
multiple eidtions printed. This book runs 626 pages and is remarkable
in its emphasis on Robin as a very pious and religious man, in fact a
"monk," who refuses Maid Marian.

Tales_, Kalamazoo, Michigan: Medieval Institute Publications, 1996.
The 600-page anthology is now in production and will be published in
Fall 1996. It contains a full range of literary texts including the
ballads, plays, and analogues in Old French and Anglo-Norman. All of
the English works have been re-edited from original materials,
including a new text of "Gamelyn" and two new ballads recently
discovered in the British Library.

Roberson, Jennifer, _Lady of the Forest_ (1992). The lady is Marian,
the forest is Sherwood, and Robin is Robert, the son and heir of the
Earl of Huntingdon. Roberson wrote the book using all the characters
for viewpoint (Sheriff, Earl, Robert, Will Scarlet, Marian, etc.)
which while slowing it down in some ways, provided all sorts of
different perspectives on the action, since *everyone's* version is
present. This is set in the times of the Crusades and historical
details are handled pretty well.

understood, but then heraldry for the Robin Hood stories is even more
hypothetical than that of the Arthurian tales. His horses are
wonderful. The book is worth having just for the pictures, quite apart
