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.
