Book Review - Robin Hood: A Mythic Biography

    Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature reviewpeer-review


    Robin Hood: A Mythic Biography is Professor Stephen Knights most recent contribution to the established field of Robin Hood studies. As the title suggests, this work both explores the historical development of the English outlaw figure and educes a rich array of cultural meanings associated with Robin Hood at the various stages of his mythical life. Complementing the approach of his Robin Hood: A Complete Study of the English Outlaw (1994), in which he extensively analysed the sources contributing to the greenwood myth, Knight now deconstructs the myth itself in order to understand how each addition to the medieval Robin Hood stories related to the demands and desires of successive periods.
