Robin Hood by N.C. Wyeth

Robin Hood and His Adventures

by Paul Creswick

Illustrations by N.C. Wyeth


This is Paul Creswick's able retelling of the Robin Hood myth. The Robin Hood narrative first surfaced as a short mention in Piers Plowman, and accreted details through folk-tales, ballad, literature, and of course, cinema. Like other English literary productions such as King Arthur or Sherlock Holmes, the fact that Robin Hood is a fiction is almost irrelevant; people want to believe that he was an actual historical personage. Creswick's version of this tale brings it to life, and the luminous Wyeth illustrations complete the picture.
