The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories (Thrift Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The quintessential American writer, Washington Irving emerged as the country's first popular author with such beloved nineteenth-century short stories as "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle." These highly entertaining fiction masterpieces reveal Irving's unique mastery at portraying the landscapes and culture of early America.

This modestly priced edition includes both of these Irving landmarks, as well as other acclaimed short works by the famous essayist, travel writer, biographer, and historian:

• "The Spectre Bridegroom"

• "The Devil and Tom Walker"

• "The Wife"

• "Westminster Abbey"

• "Mountjoy"

• "Adventure of the Mysterious Stranger"

and five other classics.

Filled with satire, pathos, and picturesque observations, these remarkable stories are important foundations of the American literary tradition.

Synopsis:

Among the first tales by an American writer, the title story and  "Rip Van Winkle" marked the entry of Washington Irving into world literature. Also includes "The Devil and Tom Walker," "The Spectre Bridegroom," and more, 15 short stories in all.

Synopsis:

A sage storyteller, Irving created such staples of American fiction as "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." This collection contains dozens of travel essays, tales of romance, and literary musings. Features a new Introduction. Revised reissue.
