Washington Irving (1783–1859) was the first American literary artist to earn his living solely through his writings and the first to enjoy international acclaim. In addition to his long public service as a diplomat, Irving was amazingly prolific: His collected works fill forty volumes that encompass essays, history, travel writings, and multi-volume biographies of Columbus and Washington.

Washington Irving (1783–1859) was the first American literary artist to earn his living solely through his writings and the first to enjoy international acclaim. In addition to his long public service as a diplomat, Irving was amazingly prolific: His collected works fill forty volumes that encompass essays, history, travel writings, and multi-volume biographies of Columbus and Washington. But it is Irving's mastery of suspense, characterization, tempo, and irony that transforms his fiction into virtuoso performances, earning him his reputation as the father of the American short story. Charles Neider has gathered all sixty-one of Irving's tales, originally scattered throughout his many collections of nonfiction essays and sketches, into one magnificent volume. Together, they reveal his wide range: besides the expected classics like "Rip Van Winkle," "The Spectre Bridegroom," "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," and "The Devil and Tom Walker," his fiction embraces realistic tales, ghost stories, parodies, legends, fables, and satires. For those familiar only with secondhand retellings of Irving's most famous tales, this collection offers the opportunity to step inside Washington Irving's imagination and partake of its innumerable and timeless pleasures.

Not the book pictured, just a plain, kind of ugly cover, but it is the right book.

Washington Irving is a national treasure. He's got way more to say than Rip Van Winkle. Get this book and you pretty much get it all from him. Wonderful book that you'll spend a lifetime enjoying. More people should be reading this guy today. Recommended.
Deodorant for your language
As a child, I was familiar with the stories of Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, but did not know of Irving's other works. I really enjoyed these short stories and to have them all in one book was an added bonus. I like Irving's writing style and the twists and turns of his stories. Although some modern readers might find some of his works a little difficult to read. That aside, I feel most modern readers are at a loss if they don't give this eighteen century writer a try. I would recommend this book of classic tales to anyone. That's why I gave it a five star rating.

I don’t like that the copy I received had a different cover than the one advertised. But otherwise happy with the purchase

Insanity
Some classic stories like the Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle by an all too often forgotten top notch American author.
