The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood of Great Renown in Nottinghamshire is an 1883 novel by the American illustrator and writer Howard Pyle. Consisting of a series of episodes in the story of the English outlaw Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men, the novel compiles traditional material into a coherent narrative in a colorful, invented "old English" idiom that preserves some flavor of the ballads, and adapts it for children.

he modified the ballad "Robin Hood's Progress to Nottingham", changing it from Robin killing fourteen foresters for not honoring a bet to Robin defending himself against a band of armed robbers. Pyle has Robin kill only one man, who shoots at him first. Tales are changed in which Robin steals all that an ambushed traveler carried, such as "Robin Hood and the Bishop of Hereford", so that the victim keeps a third and another third is dedicated to the poor.

From the Author to the Reader KOU wko so plod amid serious things that you feel it shame to give yourself up even for a few short moments to mirth and joyousness in the land of Fancy ;you who think that life hath nought iodo with innocent laughter that can harm no one; these pages are not fffryou. Clap to the leaves and go no farther than this, for I tell you plainly that if you go farther you will be scandalised by seeing good, sober folks of real history so frisk and caper in gay colors and motley, that you would not know them but for the names tagged to them. Here is a stout, lusty fellow with a quick temper, yet none so ill for all that, who goes by the name of Henry II. Here is a fair, gentle lady before whom all the others bow and call her Queen Eleanor. Here is a fat rogue of a fellow dressed up in rich robes of a clerical kind, that all the good folk call my Lord Bishop of Hereford. Here is a certain fellow with a sour temper and a grim look the worshipful, the Sheriff of Nottingham. And here, above all, is a great, tall, merry fellow that roams the greenwood and joins in homely sports, and sits beside the Sheriff at merry feast, which same beareth the name of the proudest of the Plantagenets Richard of the Lions Heart. .R eside these there are a whole host of knights, priests, nobles, burghers, yeomen, pages, ladies, lasses, landlords, beggars, pedlers, and what not, all living the merriest of merry lives, and all bound by nothing bu a few odd strands of certain old ballads snipped and clipped and tied togetlur again in a score of knots) which draw these jocund fellows here and there, singing as they go.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint

Our big kid (age 7) is a great reader. She still enjoys family story time, but the writing is on the wall--we are not going to be reading to her at bedtime forever. Needed to bring the A game, and Howard Pyle's Robin Hood absolutely qualified. The chapters are self-contained stories, with lots of swashbuckling and physical comedy, and a ton of stylized word play that she really got a kick out of, even if we needed to sometimes translate. The whole family is now saying "Methinks" and "Forsooth". Also, we are considering beginning a theft ring.

The Howard Pyle version of The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood seemed to be the version with the most editions available, so I figured that would be a good starting place for Robin Hood stories. Silly me once again forgot that I had already purchased the Audible version of the book (the Audible version is not free, but I think I got it as a daily deal or something) and got the Kindle version too. Since the Kindle version is a cheap edition of a really old book, I did not particularly expect the Kindle and audiobooks to sync up, but they actually did pretty well together.

John Lee does a great job with the narration, voicing everybody from the evil Guy of Gisbourne to the shifty Sheriff of Nottingham with fine distinction. He even sings all the many songs in the book in character very well. According to the section in the Kindle book about the author (this part was not in the audiobook version) Howard Pyle based his version of the Robin Hood stories on a 1795 collection of ballads, so nearly every tale, especially in the first part of the book, has a merry song or two in it.

Apparently, there is no original manuscript to base a rendition of the Robin Hood stories on so this collection of ballads may be as close to an original source as we are likely to get. In consequence, while the language of these stories has a suitably Medieval cast to it, it is nevertheless reasonably easy to understand. It’s not like trying to read Middle English or anything.

And yet, the stories are set in a time when Middle English would not have been so far off the mark. This collection actually focuses on a time period somewhat earlier than the more recent popular renditions of Robin Hood in the movies. Throughout most of the book, the King is King Henry II. In fact, Henry and his Queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine, appear in a couple of the stories. Queen Eleanor sponsors Robin Hood and some of his men in a tournament, and King Henry, upset that they have beaten some of his favorites, hunts them all over the north of England. This must have been during the time Henry and Eleanor weren’t getting along so well.

There were many stories in this book that I had not heard before, or barely heard references to somewhere. And a lot of the stories found in recent renditions of Robin Hood are not there. For instance, Maid Marian is mentioned about three times as the girl Robin Hood loves best, but her story is not told at all. Instead, we have the story of Allan A Dale and his true love, Ellen, and how Robin Hood saved fair Ellen from marrying an old knight so that she could marry the minstrel instead. Guy of Gisbourne is not a knight but another outlaw with an evil reputation whom the Sheriff of Nottingham has hired to kill Robin Hood. And it is King Richard who, after his father’s death and his own accession to the throne, finally catches Robin Hood – and takes him into his personal service.

The original text is preserved and generally fornatted well, but the illustrations are not Howard Pyle's and are frankly very poor. I cannot overstate how bad they are. Computer generated, irrelevant to the story, and lacking any interesting detail.
If you are going to buy the classic Howard Pyle version of the legend, I strongly encourage you to only buy an edition with Howard Pyle as the illustrator.

I am reading this with my 8 year old daughter and I love how she is learning to read and understand a rich text. A "right stout yeoman" and "cudgel" are just a sample of the writings. It is amazing how modern stories have been "dumbed down" for today's children. You won't be disappointed with that in this book. My only complaint so far (we are about 8 chapters into it) is that we've lost our picture pages. There will be a big box of white space where you know the picture should be, but no picture. Disappointing for sure. I would also caution that this is not the Disney version of Robin Hood. The Merry Men drink ale, lie, steal, fight and do other things that you may or may not agree with. I find it a good talking point for my daughter.

Didn't know how I would fee about this book as I should have read it when I was much younger, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially for its light deft touch on the man, his associates and his stories. Pyle, who was actually an illustrator who took this and other stories and adapted them for young people, did just that with Robin Hood, creating most definitely an unreal happy-go-lucky, gentle thief who lives in the woods and takes from the rich "to give to the poor."

The stories are funny, light and easy to read (only some old English to contend with). If you're looking for a break from the violent, blood, serious or supernatural, here is a good choice.

This is the most beautifully written fairy tale I have ever read. It has sunk into my soul and will never be forgotton. My grandmother had a hardback copy that literally fell to dust, due to high-acid paper and much handling. Now that I am a grandmother, I feel a strong loving to pass this wonderful book on to every child in my family.

This was the first time I ever liked an audiobook SO much that I sought out the buy the printed book, and I wanted it specifically to read the songs. It's a very light-hearted book, and can be read quickly if you gloss over all the "thee, thou, dost" language, but that is part of what, for me, makes it so charming. You mostly follow Robin and his merry men on their adventures, and there is not much character development or dynamics, but this book abounds with wit, woodland metaphors, and (sometimes) clever pranks.
