      > discussing texts from this period. I've arbitrarily put
      > everything
      > pre 1600 in this section, although I realize this isn't the
      > "medieval" period.
      > * [2]Early Fiction (1600-1899): involves any fiction published
      > during this time. If I have an 18th century commentary on a 15th
      > century work, that goes here. (If it's a 18th century
      > republication of something from prior to 1600, let me know and I
      > will move it to the above category.)
      > * [3]Modern Fiction (1900-present): includes all fictionalized
      > accounts published in this century.
      > * [4]Poetry: includes all poetic versions of the Robin Hood
      > legend,
      > regardless of when (first) published or written.
      > * [5]Non-Fiction and Research: includes analyses of the Robin Hood
      > legend: how it started, what purpose it filled, original texts,
      > etc. Some of the texts that republish old work but include an
      > analysis may have been mistakenly filed in one of the fiction
      > categories above; let me know if this is the case.
      >
