Dawn of the Unread - Issue #10

Ms Hood is a fictional contemporary character based on Maid Marian and inspired by Carol Ann Duffy's collection, The World's Wife. Growing up on a rough estate in Nottingham, her desire for success brings her into conflict with friend and childhood sweetheart Rob ‘Hoodie’, an ex-soldier turned protester. As the narrator of the tale, she charts her journey to becoming ‘Ms Hood’, suggesting that anyone who stands up for social justice can be ‘Hood’ and that the issues encapsulated in the Robin Hood legend are as relevant today as they were in Medieval times.
