- Robin Hood
This course will trace the development of Robin Hood’s legend, from the earliest ballads, through May games, to novels, and eventually movies and television. With consideration for the mixing of folklore, popular culture, and literature over the last seven centuries, we will examine how, as political needs shifted and the audience changed, the story turned from Robin’s being a thief to his being a social outlaw fighting for justice.
