  2. Washington Irving : selected writings

    Irving, Washington, 1783-1859
    A Broadview anthology of American literature edition. - Peterborough, Ontario ; Tonawanda, NY : Broadview Press, [2023]

    "Two of Washington Irving's works of short fiction from his 1819-20 work, The Sketch Book--Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow--are among the most enduringly popular of American classics. In his own day, Irving's works were widely read in Britain as well as in America; the English novelist William Makepiece Thackeray described him as "the first ambassador whom the New World of Letters sent to the Old." This edition takes notice of transatlantic literary history with an appendix of reviews from American and British newspapers, and by printing in facing page format the American and British versions of "Traits of Indian Character" (which differed from each other in a variety of interesting ways). Also included are an excerpt from Irving's first major work, A History of New York; excerpts from a key source that Irving drew on for "Rip Van Winkle"; and a selection of illustrations showing some of the ways in which this character was imagined in nineteenth-century America. With a concise but wide-ranging introduction and extensive explanatory notes, this edition is ideally suited for course use. This volume is one of a number of editions that have been drawn from the pages of the acclaimed Broadview Anthology of American Literature; like the others, it is designed to make a range of material from the anthology available in a format convenient for use in a wide variety of contexts."--
