A fun, quick paced read.

It’s a mix of folk stories from the early U.S. and from Spain. I knew Rip van Winkle and Ichabod Crane from my childhood, but never straight from the author’s own words. The early stories are good for pretty much any age, maybe depending on the sensitivities of the child and how they would feel about headless horsemen and people making deals with the devil, but to me it was a pretty gentle level of creepy. The latter stories mig not hold younger kids’ attention quite so well, but they’re still interesting. I’d let my older kids read/hear any of them, but might just stick with Rip and Ichabod for the ones under 10.

I find that I like Washington’s writing quite bit, he’s pretty straightforward and to the point with his storytelling, but can be a little more flowery and pretty with his descriptions and vocabulary, maybe somewhere between Twain and Dickens. ( )

Five short stories: from the entirely forgettable "The Pride of the Village", the readable (but forgettable) "Spectre Bridegroom"; the mildly entertaining "Rip van Winkle" and "Sleepy Hollow" and the take-off of a self-satisfied Enlightenment guy in "Mountjoy."
OK, not a must-read by any means. ( )

Se trata de versiones adaptadas para estudiantes de inglés, por lo que no se deben considerar de la misma manera que los originales. El libro cumple su función, y tanto las ilustraciones como las historias en sí son buenísimas. ( )

This wasn't that good of a read. While the stories seem driven, the writing feels archaic and insipid. I did not feel a definite connection, or felt the literary appeal, of much of this collection and it was hard to focus in on the details. Overall, not that great of a read.

2 stars. ( )

Holy crap does Washington Irving suck as a writer. Great ideas REALLY terribly executed. What boring crap. ( )

By Woden, God of Saxons,
From whence came Wensday, that is Wodensday,
Truth is a thing that ever I will keep
Unto thylke day in which I creep into
My sepulchre -


Rip Van Winkle.
A pleasing land of drowsy head it was,
Of dreams that wave before the half-shut eye;
And of gay castles in the clouds that pass,
Forever flushing round a summer sky.


The legend of Sleepy Hollow.
He that supper for is dight,
He lyes full cold, I trow, this night!
Yestreen to chamber I him led,
This night Gray-Steel has made his bed.


The spectre bridegroom.
May no wolfe howle; no screech owle stir
A wing about thy sepulchre!
No boysterous winds or stormes come hither,
To starve or wither
Thy soft sweet earth! but, like a spring,
Love keep it ever flourishing.


The pride of the village.

(The following Tale was found among the papers of the late Diedrich Knickerocker, an old gentleman, who was very curious in the Dutch history of the province, and the manners of the descendants from its primitive settlers.

Rip Van Winkle.
In the bosom of one of those spacious coves which indent the eastern shore of the Hudson, at the broad expansion of the river denominated by the ancient Dutch navigators the Tappan Zee, and where they always prudently shortened sail and implored the protection of St Nicholas when they crossed, there lies a small market town or rural port, which by some is called Greensburgh, but which is more generally and properly known by the name of Tarry Town.

The legend of Sleepy Hollow.
On the summit of one of the heights of the Odenwald, a wild and romantic tract of Upper Germany, that lies not far from the confluence of the Main and the Rhine, there stood, many, many years since, the Castle of the Baron Von Landshort.

The spectre bridegroom.
In the course of an excursion through one of the remote counties of England, I had struck into one of those crossroads that lead through the more secluded parts of the country, and stopped one afternoon at a village, the situation of which was beautifully rural and retired.

The pride of the village.
I was born among romantic scenery, in one of the wildest parts of the Hudson, which at that time was not so thickly settled as at present.
