A Lytell Geste of Robyn Hode

Robin Hood

Another great poetry must read includes A Lytel Gest of Robyn Hode.

Written in Middle English using the then-popular ballad verse-form: the geste narrates the wild exploits of the gentleman-outlaw Robin Hood, including: his hatred of the corrupt prelacy, his chivalry to women, and (of course!) his legendary skill with the longbow.

  • Just who was Friar Tuck? And why does the good friar prefer the company of Robin Hood’s outlaws to that of his brothers in fraternity?
  • Pardoned by the King of England himself – Robin Hood is finally rendered untouchable to his trenchant foes. So surely plots against his life will now come to an end?
