HASH(0x9ecb6060) out of 5 stars Robin Hood rarities. May 9 2000
By Allen W. Wright - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Robin Hood in Popular Culture is the proceedings volume of the 1997 Robin Hood academic conference. The papers collected cover the whole range of the legend from the earliest ballads to American legal cases to films to superhero comic books to 1927 Marxist Japanese plays. A great many of the papers are well-written. Unfortunately some are written in "literary speak". But all the articles are informative. This isn't a book for beginner's. Barrie Dobson and Stephen Knight's plenary addresses are helpful for getting a sense of the beginnings of the legend, and where the legend is headed. But for those unfamiliar with the basics of Robin Hood scholarship, I'd recommend Dobson, Knight or J.C. Holt's books on Robin Hood. However, if you are familiar with the basics of the legend, this book is a treasure trove of interesting information about rarely explored nooks and crannies of the outlaw tales.
