- Author: Irving, WashingtonDate:Created2016Summary:
Washington Irving weaves a bewitching tale with hints of the gothic to expose a darkness pervading social stratification in 19th-century America. In Irving’s best-known short story, a teacher vying for the hand of a wealthy socialite finds his romantic moment disrupted by the appearance of a headless horseman who terrifies him on a midnight ride through the countryside, leaving readers with such haunting questions as: Was the headless horseman a rival suitor in disguise? Where was Scooby Doo during all of this? Would a horseman without a head qualify for accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act? And what kind of name is “Ichabod” anyway?Subject(s): New York (State) | Ghost stories | Ghost stories, American | Ghosts | United States--Hudson River Valley | New York (State)--Catskill Mountains Region | TeachersOriginal Publisher: San Francisco, CA, PlymptonLanguage(s): EnglishISBN: 9781682280669
