Viac o knihe Sketch-Book of Geoffrey Crayon (Oxford World's Classics) (Irving, W.)

With these words, Washington Irving expresses the dilemma of every American artist in the nineteenth century. The Sketch-Book (1820-1) looks simultaneously towards audiences on both sides of the Atlantic, as Irving explores the uneasy relationship of an American writer to English literary traditions. He sketches a series of encounters with the cultural shrines of the parent nation, and in two brilliant experiments with tales transplanted from Europe creates the first classic American short stories, ´Rip Van Winkle´ and ´The Legend of the Sleepy Hollow´. The result was not only a hugely successful travel book; it exerted a strong formative influence on American writers from Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe to Henry James, and is well worth rediscovery in its own right today. Based on Irving´s final revision of his most popular work, this new edition includes comprehensive explanatory notes of The Sketch-Book´s sources for the modern reader. In her introduction, Susan Manning suggests that the author forged a new idiom, the ´Literary Picturesque´, to accommodate and turn to advantage his dilemma of dual literary allegiances.
