About the Author

Washington Irving (April 3, 1783 – November 28, 1859) was an American author, essayist, biographer, historian, and diplomat of the early 19th century. He is best known for his short stories "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle", both of which appear in his book The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. His historical works include biographies of George Washington, Oliver Goldsmith and Muhammad, and several histories of 15th-century Spain dealing with subjects such as Christopher Columbus, the Moors, and the Alhambra. Irving served as the U.S. ambassador to Spain from 1842 to 1846.

5.0 out of 5 stars That Is, If You Like This Sort of Thing 26 Nov. 2014
By Bill Marsano - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
By Bill Marsano. Irving was one of the first if not the very first American writer to win an international reputation. Oddly enough that was just about the time the British litterateur Sidney Smith published [1820] his notorious and condescending "Who Reads an American Book?" which insulted Americans as a people modestly clever and always busy but utterly without creative genius of any kind. [Like many others of his country,men, Smith never quite got over the American Revolution.] Well, Irving sure showed him. Sort of: In this book he is a resolute anglophile, bathing himself in the cosiness of English country life of the early 19th Century much as Downton Abbey fans do today. It's all romanticized and glowingly artificial--again, like Downton Abbey, but he writes bout the hearty squire rather than the pompous lord. Irving is much better in his writings about Old Dutch New York and even his stuff about Moorish Spain. This, while highly literate and always graceful, is what E.B. White once called 'genial prose.' That is, likable, companionable and above all comfortable stuff that is mildly amusing but rarely if ever actually humorous. In short, as Lincoln said [or is said to have said] 'People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like.'--Bill Marsano is an award-winning writer and editor of, it rather pains him to say, 50 years' experience.
