Description

Myths have always been at our sides to impart wisdom, guidance, and meaning into our lives. In The Scarlet Forest we remember why this particular myth is so powerful and potent even today. Chandler’s knowledge of this tale creates a unique mix of thirteenth century historical accuracy with the later literary tropes incorporated into the legend. She brings to life the world of the Merry Men who have traded their comfortable worlds for lives of thrilling adventure Robin Hood has always been a tale of morality; in Chandler’s retelling it becomes much more than just that. She invites us to come explore the Scarlet Forest with this band of Merry Men, be surrounded by the inviting green of the foliage and the outlawed life of those days. We hear from the bandits themselves about enjoying a free, adventurous life in the woods, and their own fears of the constant dangers around them.
