The next novel following Scott was Thomas Love Peacock's novella Maid Marian.
The novel was originally intended as a satire on continental conservatism and its enthusiasm for all things feudal and medieval, and in particular the unwarranted praise of aristocracy.
Thus through his novella Peacock attempted to show how man’s feudal overlords have always been the same: greedy, violent, cynical, and self-interested.
Robin also appears as the principal protagonist of two tales printed in an early penny blood entitled Lives of the Highwaymen in 1836. James' Forest Days (1843), while not intended as a political or social commentary, is significant because it abandons the traditional dating of the Robin Hood story in the 1190s and instead places the Robin Hood legend during the Simon de Montfort rebellion (1264-67).
I keep hitting all three failure points simultaneously.
(08/13/2012) I somehow screwed up with the site update AGAIN?
Dumas' works were then retranslated back into English by Alfred Allinson in 1904.
If it's the latter, I won't be bothered by your email. (04/22/2013) this year for comic uploading screw-ups has not been great. I named the file with tomorrow's date by accident and my phone ran out of battery because I left my charger at work (normally, I get a text message and an email if the comic doesn't update).
The first Robin Hood novel written specifically for children appears to be Stephen Percy's Tales of Robin Hood (1840). Marsh's children's book Robin Hood appeared in 1865, as did a penny dreadful entitled Little John and Will Scarlet (1865). White's novel "The Sword in the Stone" (1938, later incorporated into "The Once and Future King"), young Wart (Arthur) and Kay have an adventure with a man they initially call Robin Hood, but are told that his real name is Robin Wood.
The next major novel written was entitled The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle in 1883. His merry men refer to him as "Robin 'ood," dropping Ws instead of Hs, in the Nottinghamshire accent of the time.
Good thing my layover was four hours, because that's about how long this took to fix. Fortunately, I just got connected (~4pm PT) and saw the problem. It's still Friday (in California, at least), so I still get credit for my perfect record, right? *sigh* (08/01/2012) who checked the site within 45 minutes of midnight (PST) today got a sneak peak at what will be Friday's comic.
That's because I decided to swap in this comic that I just drew last night.
This serialised tale, however, is little more than a reprint of the earlier biography of Robin Hood that appeared in Charles Johnson's work. By far the longest Robin Hood novel, standing at almost half-a-million words, is Pierce Egan the Younger's Robin Hood and Little John; or, The Merrie Men of Sherwood Forest (serialised 1838-1840).
