Tonight, by listener request, we’ll be reading the opening to the 1883 novel by American illustrator and writer Howard Pyle, "Robin Hood". Consisting of a series of episodes in the story of the English outlaw Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men, the novel helped solidify the image of a heroic Robin Hood, which had begun in earlier works such as Walter Scott's 1819 novel "Ivanhoe".
