The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood

The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood is a classic example of class conflict. Robin Hood is known for taking from the rich to give to the poor. Robin Hood actually becomes an outlaw because of class conflict with foresters. His actions are his way of pursuing his collective interest in society. In Robin Hood's society the majority of the people had little to no capital gain because the bourgeoisie were exploiting them. Robin Hood is a proletariat who fights and takes from the bourgeoisie for other proletariats.


Disney also created a film based off Robin Hood with the same ideas.
