The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood of Great Renown in Nottinghamshire is an 1883 novel by the American illustrator and writer Howard Pyle. Consisting of a series of episodes in the story of the English outlaw Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men, the novel compiles traditional material into a coherent narrative in a colorful, invented "old English" idiom that preserves some flavor of the ballads, and adapts it for children. The novel is notable for taking the subject of Robin Hood, which had been increasingly popular through the 19th century, in a new direction that influenced later writers, artists, and filmmakers through the next century.

 

 

作者


霍华德·派尔(1853年3月5日----1911年11月10日)美国著名插画家、作家,是难得一见的在文字写作和绘画方面皆造诣不凡的大师级人物。霍华德·派尔少年时代就表现出超人的绘画才能,为一些杂志定期绘制插图,此外他写作方面也很有天赋,加之之前接触到许多民间故事和传说,也就促成后来他创作了一系列骑士和英雄人物的历险记,主要作品有《罗宾汉奇遇记》、《银手奥托》、《海盗传说》(亦可译为《海盗集》)、《骑士麦尔斯》(亦可译为《铁人》)等,大多取材于中世纪的神话或殖民地时期历史,再现了那个时代的社会风貌。霍华德·派尔的作品在英文领域一直有着良好的口碑,被列为世界名著,他的《海盗传说》、《骑士麦尔斯》等被列入欧美青少年必读书目。

Howard Pyle (March 5, 1853—November 9, 1911) was an American illustrator and author, primarily of books for young people. A native of Wilmington, Delaware, he spent the last year of his life in Florence, Italy. In 1894 he began teaching illustration at the Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry. After 1901, he founded his own school of art and illustration, named the Howard Pyle School of Illustration Art. The scholar Henry C. Pitz later used the term Brandywine School for the illustration artists and Wyeth family artists of the Brandywine region, several of whom had studied with Pyle. Pyle's home and studio in Wilmington, where he taught his students, is still standing and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

 

 

书摘
In the middle of the crowd of vehicles, with an omnibus before them, and a brewer's dray behind them, came a line of three donkey-carts, heaped high with bundles and articles of gipsy-gear. The foremost was conducted by a middle-aged woman of tall, commanding aspect, and expression both cunning and fierce. She walked by the donkey's head carrying a short stick, with which she struck him now and then, but which she oftener waved over his head like the truncheon of an excited marshal on the battle-field, accompanying its movements now with loud cries to the animal, now with loud response to the chaff of the omnibus conductor, the dray driver, and the tradesmen in carts about her.

 

推荐

 

这个版本诞生于19世纪,是对罗宾汉故事的最经典诠释。虽然古英语的点缀使之富有古朴的文学味道,但也谈不上晦涩,反而为那些耳熟能详的跌宕情节增添了生动色彩。其间保留着一些英格兰民歌遗风,很有诗歌的韵味。总之,这并不单纯是一部儿童作品,而是一部很具有历史价值且老少皆宜的经典文学作品。出乎意料的是,书中还配有一些绘制精美的插图。
