Washington Irving sits atop the American literary canon alongside Mark Twain and Edgar Allan Poe. Indeed he was the first truly international American writer to achieve acclaim around the world as well as at home, and to make his living exclusively as a man of letters. His most famous stories “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”, and “Rip Van Winkle” are literary masterpieces that have stood the test of time to become true classics.
