Sleepy Hollow sounded like such a peaceful place to the gentle Ichabod Crane. Boy, was he in for a surprise. Washington Irving, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

The character of Ichabod Crane in Irving’s immortal story has had many incarnations. He’s been a detective, a dabbler in the supernatural, and a criminologist, among other things. First published in 1820, this is among the first examples of American fiction with enduring popularity. Of course, cartoons help. 

I’ve always appreciated how much of the original text survived in the Disney version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Required viewing at Halloween time. 

And now, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, by Washington Irving.
