Take me to the archived exhibition.

This exhibit showcases books that attest to the continued popularity of Robin Hood and to the variety of editions, chapbooks, and writings about his career. The noted Brandywine illustrators, N. C. Wyeth and Howard Pyle, have contributed to the Robin Hood corpus through the written word and celebrated illustrations. Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Errol Flynn, Mel Brooks, and Kevin Costner have all lent their dramatic talents to developing the heroic and comic possibilities of the “prince of thieves.” A sampling of renowned scholars of the Robin Hood legend and of earlier literature also appears in the exhibit.

This exhibition was on display in the Information Room on the first floor of Morris Library from August 26-December 16, 2005.
