What do we personalize in Robin Hood?
Robin Hood - Robin Hood is a daring adventurer with a kind heart, a passion for justice--and a mischievous streak. Though born into wealth, Robin sides with the underdog and turns into an outlaw to steal from the rich to give to the poor.
Maid Marian - Maid Marian is both beautiful and brave. Though she is a noblewoman, she falls in love with Robin even when he is hunted by the law. To find Robin, she disguises herself as a young man.
Little John - Robin Hood's close friend, Little John is jokingly named--he is a large, strong man who, like Robin, fights for justice. Though he has a quick temper, he is a loyal and courageous ally.
Will Scarlett / Geoffrey Montfichet - Robin's cousin Geoffrey changes his name to Will Scarlett when he joins Robin's band of outlaws to rebel against the unjust mistreatment of the poor.
Will Stutley - Along with Little John, Will Stutley is Robin Hood's closest companion among the Merry Men. He is highly rambunctious and energetic.
Friar Tuck - Friar Tuck is a clergyman who is stout of both heart and body, and able to fight his enemies with a staff or bow. Though he has a wild reputation (and his first meeting with Robin Hood begins with a brawl after Robin pranks him), he is a kindly, generous man who defends the poor.
Notes: In addition to the personalizations of the characters, some other edits have been made to the original text; primarily, removing the epilogue describing the deaths of Robin Hood and Maid Marian.
