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 literarytraditions. 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 turnto advantage his dilemma of dual literary allegiances.… (mere)

4-5 Stars for Rip and Ichabod, 3 or less for most of the other fiction.

Early in the book, Irving offers maybe the first literary mention of throwing shade:

(talking about "great men") "I have mingled among them in my time,
and have been withered by the shade in which they cast me...."

Totally discouraged about his home country of America, the author lived in Europe
for many years, returns then rather goes on too long about visiting critics from England.
He also gets boring and silly in "Little Britain."

Back home, he writes as eloquently as he did about an English Christmas and Stratford,
yet strangely takes no notice of slavery. ( )

4 stars for Rip Van Winkle and Sleepy Hollow. The rest are skippable, they read like the kind of op-ed that spawns lots of other op-eds and blog posts disagreeing with each other. ( )

Enjoyable and quite light collection of short fiction. ( )

I had read "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" before, but I picked this up to read the other essays included in the collection. "The Art of Book-making" (about a visit to the British Library) was great, but most of the others here didn't do much for me, and a few really annoyed me (most notably "The Broken Heart," which is extremely sexist). Overall, quite underwhelming. ( )

I have no wife nor children, good or bad, to provide for. A mere spectator of other men's fortunes and adventures, and how they play their parts; which, methinks, are diversely presented unto me, as from a common theatre or scene. BURTON

In the bosom of one of those spacious coves which indent the eastern shore of the Hudson, at the broad expansion of the river denominated by the ancient Dutch navigators the Tappan Zee, and where they always prudently shortened sail, and implored the protection of St. Nicholas when they crossed, there lies a small market-town or rural port, which by some is called Greensburg, but which is more generally and properly known by the name of Tarry Town.

The first edition is titled “The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent.” (abbreviating “Gentleman”). Titles of later editions hyphenate “Sketch-Book,” replace “Gent.” with “Esq.” or simply shorten the title to “The Sketch Book.” The first American edition (1819-20) appeared in seven small paper-bound volumes. The first London edition (1820), in two volumes, added two 1814 magazine articles by Irving (“Traits of Indian Character” and “Philip of Pokanoket”) and a concluding “L‘Envoy.” A revised edition in 1848 added two new stories (“London Antiquities,” “A Sunday in London”) and a preface and postscript to “Rip Van Winkle.” Many abridged editions have been published; some include only the best known stories (e.g., “Rip Van Winkle,” “The Spectre Bridegroom,” “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”) or the Christmas essays (“Christmas,” “The Stage-Coach,” “Christmas Eve,” “Christmas Day”, “Christmas Dinner”).
