    1. Henry Gilbert’s Robin Hood sulks in the uneasy twilight of world literature. The likes of Sir Gawain, Piers Plowman and Beowulf have had the good fortune to have their tales told in a clear, definitive voice and then retold by scrupulous and concise editors. Robin Hood’s story was told and retold by so many balladeers and then moulded into whatever shape his editors thought would fit the sensibilities of the times. Therefore it is difficult to find Robin Hood in his original alliterative ver [...]


    2. Robin Hood is the best-loved outlaw of all literature, and one of the best-loved characters altogether. Henry Gilbert's version of the story proves it. The book is interesting to read, since it provides an explicit view over the hard past times in old England, over the people and the lands. Its action brings the suspense which will keep you entertained reading it till the very end, and its characters almost deliver their very feelings to you, as a reader. Robin Hood is finely designed, so that h [...]


    3. Want to turn a kid off reading or Robin Hood? Give him or her this book.Howard Pyle sticks out his tongue. He still reigns supreme.


    4. Great, fun book and I really enjoyed reading it; it was a refreshing antidote to the more saccharin Robin Hood tales peddled by Disney and Hollywood. I especially enjoyed the frequent, strongly worded denunciations against clerics, abbots and other church leaders, but I was a bit disappointed in Robin's deep devotion to the monarchy. The movies also leave out his most exciting and heroic adventure, in which he helps a kindly knight pay off his mortgage!


    5. I can't be particularly rational or analytic about this book. It's a childhood favorite, that appeared in our house when I was maybe 10 or so in odd edition dated 1935 that lacked an author credit. Re-reading it as adult, I'm struck by either how much it was perfect for my tastes or, maybe, how much it helped shape my tastes. Mainly, I think, for how much awesome, extraneous stuff it has in it. I'm typing this with my back to a map of Westeros on my wall and I think the sort of intriguing but of [...]


    6. 1. Genre: Traditional Literature2. Awards: None3. Grade Level: 5th-6th4. This story is a timeless classic with many adaptations. I would use this book when we discuss the English medieval period in history class and how this was one of the most popular folk tales to tell during that particular time period. A follow-up activity I would do would be to have my students imagine and describe what their lives would be like if they were one of Robin Hood's men living in Sherwood Forest and them have th [...]



    7. I recently bought this book because I am interested in Robin Hood and don't know much about him outside of the typical Hollywood movies and the like. Fun fact: my maternal grandfather actually came from the Nottingham area which adds to my interest in this popular English outlaw-hero. (the rest of my family is from the London/Essex area, as am I myself.) I enjoyed the book and thought that it was a fun if violent fleshing out of the character that I know so little about. The language that the au [...]


    8. A good palate-cleanser after When Dimple Met Rishi. Henry Gilbert really pushes the "corrupt and immorally rich leaders/rulers are responsible for much of society's ills" angle of the Robin Hood story and I really dig it, even though it was, appropriately for a book written in 1912, pretty heavy-handed. I always think it's funny how even Robin Hood, chaotic good extraordinaire and champion of the rights of every man, is so often painted as both a very pious man but also a very violent, eye-for-a [...]


    9. Well I'd say that this book comes with a certain age for which it holds lots of importance, but when you're a little grown up it seems to be like reading kid's stories. The descriptions that Gilbert gives about the nature and the surroundings are really beautifully written though. The way that the nature appears to you is like a nice dream from which you don't want to wake up. For kids or young teenagers I think would be interesting.


    10. *I have no idea the age group so I'm not shelving it there*This was pretty awful. The stories at the begining I had never even heard of, but they do get more familiar as the book goes on. However, the stories were boring. I have no real memory about them.Recommended 12+ for violence, and maybe language?


    11. I read this book out loud to my grown-up Autistic son and he really enjoyed it. I loved the wonderful descriptions of the settings and the battle scenes. I also enjoyed the old English speaking. An enjoyable read for both of us!



    12. Henry Gilbert’s interpretation of the old legends sets in place the twentieth-century image of Robin Hood (essentially a myth of a myth), and creates a character who we might describe as the first modern superhero.In Gilbert’s account, all the familiar figures are firmly established in our mind – Robin, Marian, Friar Tuck, Alan-a-Dale and Little John on one side, and Guy of Gisburne and the Sheriff of Nottingham on the other. (Actually, his remit is somewhat larger, and he is the Sheriff o [...]





    13. Pleasant enough retelling from the 1920's. Action packed and contains most of the common adventures told in the legend.



    14. From myblogWe all know the story of Robin Hood: a man who for one reason or another robs from the rich, and gives to the poor. Now, the problem is that the Robin Hood histories originate from a time before stories were written down. In the oral traditions, the stories were subject to change, for obvious reasons: everyone remembered other things, exaggerated what they found crucial parts, and so on. Therefore, when they were finally written down, several editions existed. Henry Gilbert mixed them [...]


    15. Definitely not in the same strain as the happy ending Disney version. It is a violent book, with Robin not in the least hesitant to kill the bad guys. He is a very charming hero, however, though I wish more was given on his background (probably no one really knows it) and I enjoy the noble speech of he and his men. The villains are convincing, with simple descriptions and characterization that do not overdo trying to make them seem ferocious. My favorite part in the book is when Robin meets Litt [...]


    16. First book I read in 2016.As a goal, I plan to read all the books in my house before I start reading new books. Basically, a collection of books built up over the years that I never got around to reading yet, or books from my brother's collection.This was a book I read back in 7th grade, and then I put down, because I got into fantasy (Artemis Fowl, Redwall, Lord of the Rings), and upon re-reading I can see whyEvery chapter is basically the same. Robin Hood meets a guy, he has some hard times wi [...]


    17. This was the classic fairytale kind of book that those really serious people without senses of humour get annoyed with. Each chapter follows the same formula; Robin learns of an injustice, overthrows the wicked lord or baron, one of his comrades dies, repeat. The best part in the novel was in the scene where we are taken to the evil hold and the wicked and oppressive rogues are scheming. It was so comical that I imagined it as a movie, the narrator would say "Meanwhile back at the Evil Hold" and [...]


    18. I won a copy of this book at a raffle a year ago and decided to read it, perhaps thinking it a liberal fantasy. I figured it would be a nice, cute story about a guy in green who innocuously robs from the rich and gives to the poor. Little did I expect how violent this story is. Robin Hood committed murder, arson and aggravated assault in his form of vigilante justice. Granted, their victims were all pretty bad people. But still, this guy wasn't George McGovern. He was Dexter.I had to put this aw [...]


    19. A very enjoyable, approachable read. Gilbert knows his RH legends, and tries to utilize as much of the old legends as possible. He also adds a couple of characters from fearie lore (which is why I've added the "magical realism" tag, because these characters are added as a matter of course). This version was published in 1912, original, and I don't know why they were inserted, but they're certainly useful. Marian isn't much of a bad-ass in this one. Unfortunately, she falls victim to Guy of Gisbo [...]


    20. 288 closely typed pages wouldn't normally be recommended reading for a 6 year old. Sean picked this off my shelf to read to him and we've now finished it. It's quite a different version of the Robin Hood legend from that of Roger L. Green, but it is every bit as compelling. The basic story should be well known to most through the cinema, however, obviously the cinema cannot pack in every incident in Hood's legend, unless one day they want to make a film of severals day's length.This book would p [...]


    21. This version of Robin Hood represents a literary half way point in the story telling history of Robin Hood tales. It isn’t a ballad told in late medieval affected style or even Tudor bombastic style, but neither does it have the fast pace, clipped speech, cinematic quality the later 20th century versions will bring to the table. It takes most of the traditional ballads and puts them in linear, prose form, with a sprinkling of Edwardian-type fantasy, swinging back and forth between the stock, b [...]


    22. I Just finished reading ROBIN HOOD to Marshall (age 7). It was written in 1912 by Henry Gilbert and was 348 pages long. We're in Virginia.It was certainly an enjoyable read and did justice to the Robin Hood legend. It has some stuffy old language, but that's my only complaint. Interestingly, the book had a pretty anti-organized religion bent (and organization in general--class structure, government, etc.). If it had a thematic message, it was that goodness (and evil), righteousness, and justice [...]


    23. This is more of a "read?" since my edition has no author or date listed. It lists the publisher as "The Goldsmith Publishing Company: Chicago". The one I own has Ket the Trow and Hob O' the Hill as charactersn anyone tell me if this book is that one? Red fabric over cardboard hardcover.If this is that oneI loved it. I read and reread it until the pages started falling out and I still compare every Robin Hood story I read or see to it. None hold a candle to the breadth of the story, from Robin's [...]
