A Brief History of Robin Hood
by Nigel Cawthorne
Originally published in 2010 to coincide with the great but underrated Ridley Scott/Russell Crowe Robin Hood flick, this is a history of the folk hero. I like to consider myself fairly thorough when it comes to the past, not just real events and literary giants, but cultural memory. Years ago I picked up a similar book on Zorro, a character with about several centuries less background than Robin Hood, so I was extremely pleased to see this released.
Bookself status: mostly unread.
