The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood of Great Renown in Nottinghamshire is an 1883 novel by the American illustrator and writer Howard Pyle. A story of the English outlaw Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men, the novel compiles traditional material into a coherent narrative and adapts it for children. The novel is notable for taking the subject of Robin Hood, which had been increasingly popular through the 19th century, in a new direction that influenced later writers, artists, and filmmakers through the next century.
The plot follows Robin Hood as he becomes an outlaw after a conflict with foresters and through his many adventures and run-ins with the law. Each chapter tells a different tale of Robin’s adventures as he romances Maid Marian, recruits Merry Men, resists the authorities, and aids his fellow man. The popular stories of Robin defeating Little John in a fight with staffs, of his besting at the hands of Friar Tuck, and of his collusion with Allan-a-Dale all appear. In the end Robin and his men are pardoned by King Richard Lionheart and his band are incorporated into the king’s retinue, much to the dismay of the Sheriff of Nottingham.
