Overview

"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is a short story by Washington Irving contained in his collection The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent., written while he was living in Birmingham, England, and first published in 1820. With Irving's companion piece "Rip Van Winkle", "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is among the earliest examples of American fiction still read today. ¿ ¿The story is set circa 1790 in the Dutch settlement of Tarry Town, in a secluded glen called Sleepy Hollow. It tells the story of Ichabod Crane, a sycophantic, lean, lanky, and extremely superstitious schoolmaster from Connecticut, who competes with Abraham "Brom Bones" Van Brunt, the town rowdy, for the hand of 18-year-old Katrina Van Tassel, the daughter and sole child of a wealthy farmer, Baltus Van Tassel. As Crane leaves a party he attended at the Van Tassel home on an autumn night, he is pursued by the Headless Horseman, who is supposedly the ghost of a Hessian trooper who had his head shot off by a stray cannonball during "some nameless battle" of the American Revolutionary War, and who "rides forth to the scene of battle in nightly quest of his head".

    Then why did you kiss me? Why did you act as if you have even infinitesimal affection for me? Why toy with my heart like a cup? You use me once, then shatter me. Ahem, hem. I'm practicing Shakespeare. :D

    *he sings Breath Into Me by RED.* If this is how it feels when I...ignore the words you spoke to me. If this is where I lose myself when I keep riding away from you... If this is who I am when, when I don't know myself anymore. If this is what I choose when...it's all left up to me.<br>*he hums the chorus.*<br>And this is how it looks when, I am standing on the edge... If this how I break apart, when...I...finally hit the ground. And this is how it hurts when I, pretend I don't feel any pain, and this is how I disapper, when I throw myself awaaaaay.
