Robin Hood FAQ : All That's Left to Know About England's Greatest Outlaw and His Band of Merry Men Paperback / softback
Part of the FAQ series
Income inequality. Wealth disparity. Roving bands of rogue knights. (OK maybe not that last one.) Now more than ever we need an egalitarian outlaw who isn't afraid to stand firm against the hypocrisies and excesses of presumptuous economic elites.
Perhaps looking back is our best way forward. For centuries Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men have inspired the oppressed uplifted the downtrodden a and of course forged a trail of their own across Western art and culture.
From medieval myth to modern blockbuster Dave Thompson's ERobin Hood FAQE offers the complete story of Robin Hood tracing the tale across each of the many media in which it has been told from legends ballads books comics and magazines to songs movies TV series and so on.
Thompson digs deep into both fact and fiction to separate the modern myth from its earliest counterpart and trace the patterns that the confluence followed. And who better to make sense of the vast and varied life of Nottingham's favorite son than Dave Thompson an English ex-pat with a bibliography a mile long a wit so droll it defies critical apprehension and a marked predilection for Lincoln green?THPlenty of ink has already been spilled on the Prince of Thieves but extant volumes tend to be literary out of print or in scholastic instances prohibitively expensive (aye the irony).
Written in Applause Theatre and Cinema Books' acclaimed FAQ format ERobin Hood FAQE bursts at the seams with 400 pages of facts fiction history and trivia.
Photo-filled and reader-friendly Thompson's latest tome is at once fun informative and at just $19.99 priced for the 99%.
