"The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood of Great Renown in Nottinghamshire" is a
novel written by Howard Pyle in 1883. Pyle compiled traditional Robin Hood
ballads into a coherent narrative, adapting the language to be suitable for
children. The novel portrays Robin Hood as a heroic outlaw who robs the rich
to help the poor, which was a departure from earlier portrayals of Robin Hood
as a crook motivated by personal gain. Pyle's book was successful and
influenced subsequent Robin Hood stories, solidifying the image of Robin Hood
as a philanthropist. It also helped popularize the Robin Hood legend in the
United States and elevated it to respected children's literature. Pyle's
characters speak in a Middle English dialect, which has become familiar to
modern audiences. Overall, "The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood" is a
significant work that shaped the perception of Robin Hood in literature and
popular culture.
