Robin Hood—The Outlaw Hero
Lecture no. 9 from the course: Heroes and Legends: The Most Influential Characters of Literature
Taught by Professor Thomas A. Shippey | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses
Who was Robin Hood? He’s an anomaly in this course because his story cannot be traced to a single work or figure. Perhaps because of these gaps in the story, he seems to be a bundle of contradictions. Delve into the politics, religion, and society of Robin Hood’s origins to understand his character and lasting appeal.
