HUNTING FOR ROBIN HOOD

by | Read by Penelope Reed Doob, Barry McGregor

Contemporary Culture • 1 hr. • Audio Program • © 2003

This highly entertaining foray into Sherwood Forest raises some important questions about the existence of Robin Hood. Sounding like a cross between a "Behind the Music" episode and a "Nova" broadcast, Feldman and his "merry band of scholars" attempt to debunk the myth of the sylvan hero. Did he ever really exist? Is he merely wish fulfillment, an archetype who satisfies our fancy? A sanitized version of a mere thief who stole only to benefit himself? Concisely edited to a single CD and loaded with interviews, as well as radio and TV outtakes of Robin Hood performances, this is a heady glass of mead in the dry town of scholarship. D.J.B.
