Tim Hall’s debut novel, Shadow of the Wolf, recasts Robin Hood as an elemental creature of the forest. Gods and monsters stalk his Sherwood. And yet it is Marian who steals the show. Here the author celebrates the changing face of this indomitable heroine. In the first draft of my novel, Maid Marian played a small but significant part. However, this wasn’t good enough for her – she demanded centre stage. With every rewrite, Marian became spikier, tougher, smarter, quicker, until finally she left Robin Loxley trailing in her wake. As her role grew and grew she became a leader, a survivor – not to mention a drug peddler and a poisoner. By now her name was just plain Marian, of course; she refused absolutely to wear the sobriquet ‘maid.’ What’s interesting is how this mirrors the development of Marian over the centuries. Starting from nothing – she was entirely absent from the earliest Robin Hood ballads – she elbowed her way in as a love interest, and then increasingly claimed starring roles. These are some of her highs and lows.
