Description
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 (Neider's abridged edition, George Washington: A Biography, is also available from Da Capo Press). But it is Irving's mastery of suspense, chararterization, 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 61 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.
