Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Sketch-Book (1820-21), Irving explores the uneasy relationship of an American writer to English literary traditions. In two sketches, he experiments with tales transplanted from Europe, thereby creating the first classic American short stories, Rip Van Winkle, and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Based on Irving's final revision of his most popular work, this new edition includes comprehensive explanatory notes of The Sketch-Book's sources for the modern reader.

Synopsis:

In this critical edition Irving sketches a series of encounters with the cultural shrines of the parent nation, and in two experiments with tales transplanted from Europe creates the classic American short stories, "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of the Sleepy Hollow".
