Overview

New, revised edition contains the original tales and updated, historical analysis by highly respected historians who delve into the fact and fiction of Robin Hood.

Who was Robin Hood? Did he ever exist? Two eminent historians here piece together the evidence and illustrate, through a critical edition of the ballads, the development of the Robin Hood myth from his medieval portrayals as a common criminal to his Vicotrian idealization as a rustic hero. A thorough and updated introduction and thirteen of the earliest known ballads ensure that this remains the most comprehensive guide to the subject available.
