TRR: Episode 28, “Robin of the Hood”

You may think you know the tales of merry Robin Hood by heart, but his origins are perhaps a bit murkier than you may realize. In this episode, we look back to the wellspring of the Robin Hood legend as we think of it, the book by Howard Pyle. Pyle’s book combined the many Robin Hood legends into a single narrative form, and set the stage for all the Robin Hood stories, films and TV shows that were to follow.
