    Robin Hood

    Hi. I'm reading the "The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood" and since it's the Middle Age's novel, it's somehow difficult to understand. I come across this sentence: "suffering neither care nor want"
    Would you please help me with the meaning?
    And here is the related paragraph:

    Right merrily they dwelled within the depths of Sherwood Forest, suffering neither care nor want, but passing the time in merry games of archery or bouts of cudgel play living upon the King’s venison, washed down with draughts of ale of October brewing.

    Re: Robin Hood

    They didn't have any cares (they didn't have any worries) or wants (they had everything they needed).
