Abstract

Stories concerning Robin Hood, the heroic outlaw of English folklore, likely circulated long before they were written down. This collection contains four anonymous poems about Robin Hood all dating from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Interestingly, the editor of this collection, Joseph Ritson, includes a biography of Robin Hood, regarding him as an historical person rather than a fictional creation.
