Download Epub Format ↠´ The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood PDF by ß Howard Pyle I have been wanting to read some Robin Hood stories ever since I read Twain s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer because Robin Hood is mentioned so often in it I don t think Sawyer was reading Pyle I believe that Twain s book was published first , but this is certainly something that I could see young Tom Sawyer really enjoying There are honorable knaves, bloody duels, merry men pulling one over on the man, and even quite a few references to King Arthur and his knights Also, the gang is all here, along with all of their origin stories I read too many comics Will Scarlet, Little John, Friar Tuck, Alan a Dale, King Richard, and the evil Guy of Gisborne and the Sheriff of Nottingham The only thing missing shockingly enough was Maid Marian she is mentioned briefly at the beginning but doesn t actually make an appearance in the book So, if you are looking for a fun, light cl This was a wonderful reread from my childhood A wonderful romp through the Sherwood forest with Robin and his merry men A tale of good and evil stealing from the rich and giving to the poor.
I recommend to all.
Enjoy and Be Blessed.
PS It makes it a lotfun if you read it aloud to a child.
Diamond He Stole From The Rich And Gave To The Poor, And In So Doing Became An Undying Symbol Of Virtue But Most Important, Robin Hood And His Band Of Merry Men Offer Young Readers Than Enough Adventure And Thrills To Keep Them Turning The Pages Who Could Resist The Arrows Flying, Danger Lurking, And Medieval Intrigue Howard Pyle is my of my favorite read aloud authors This version of Robin Hood reads like a lyric ode to Sherwood Forest and the merry band of outlaws It is the perfect book to read aloud to young poet warrior hopefuls It is also the last book I will read aloud to the young man I have been teaching for almost four years, so the bittersweet ending of the book strikes a remembrance of past readings with my own children Let us end here Thus they rode slowly onward, talking about these old, familiar things old and yet new, for they foundin them than they had ever thought of before Thus at last they came to the open glade, and the broad, wide spreading greenwood tree which was their home for so many years Neither of the two spoke when they stood beneath that tree Robin looked all about him at the well known th A rollicking good time This long version by traditional storyteller Howard Pyle hums with the merriment of Robin s band of brothers Their adventures involve bringing justice to folks in need, at the expense of the apathetic or oppressive rich and powerful passing near Sherwood forest.
It struck me that Robin Hood presents some lessons from the 1200s on masculinity, which we might not learn in our culture The typical reference to Robin s merry men today tends to be an off color homosexual reference, which only shows how little we understand true masculinity.
1 Good men are quick to laugh, not because they are fools but because they pursue a life of joy.
2 True men can laugh at themselves They are not so caught up in their ego, pride or machismo that they don t see when they have BEEN the joke.
3 Real men aren t afraid o I liked this book until the endI wont ruin it for those of you who have not read itbut after you read it I think you will understand what I mean Another iconic character that has evolved to this day Green Arrow and Hawkeye.
Pretty much the first thing every new Kindle owner does is download a shitload of free classics And hey why not They re much lauded and free And among that set for me was this book.
I loved the Robin Hood tales as a child, read some otherkid friendly versions of it time and time again as a boy and so I thought I d tackle the original here And It was awesome If you liked it then you ll like it now Friar Tuck, Little John, Will Scarlet the whole band is there, frolicking and robbing and carrying on What I didn t recall, however, is that this book is funny Robin has a wicked sense of humor and the dialogue is witty A bit cartoonish even So I dug that this trip around I asterisked original here because, there really is no original After reading this I was prompted to read all of the Wikipedia entries about Robin Hood and the evolution of his tales
This was I genuinely life altering book for me I read it for a 12th grade book report and I absolutely loved it This one book sparked a revolution in my reading habits No longer was I a participant of the young adult genre, devouring books like Harry Potter or The Series of Unfortunate Events and that s nit to say I don t like them any or that I think they re stupid, I still love them , I now belonged to ascholarly class of literature A whole new world was opened up for me In the beginning of this story, through a course of events, young Robin eventually takes someones life The story later foes on to narrate that Robin had made a vow never to take another life in vain I think that this was the cause of Robin s life long sacrifice I think that he felt guilty for taking something that w Marry, I didst learn to prate e en as those stout fellows did in Merry Old England Tis true, there are other accounts of Bold Robin s merry doings, but this one, I wot, pleases me most of them all By the bright eyes of the lass I love best, I ll say you, do you give yon Bloody Quaker the chance, thou wilt likewise fall, willy nilly, under his spell, both with the pen, and the brush, for he is a fair hand with both, withal.
And to whoever did lightly reave away my copy I ve since obtained another ten years gone, a murrain upon thee
Everyone has heard the name Robin Hood and knows about his friends Little John and Friar Tuck or Will Scarlet who wasn t actually called that once upon a time They have fallen out with the law for relatively innocent reasons but the law, back then, was evenof a mess than it is now So they all moved to Sherwood Forest where they are living and hiding and giving the occasional feast for wealthy people after which the rich are less rich and taught a lesson lol Where does the wealth go Well, I bet good old Robin keeps a bit of it to finance his next prank but most of it is spent on giving to the poor often in form of free food.
Which explains why these guys are so popular When the king demandsand , when the taxes are raised again and again and when the Sheriff is a prick, you defi
