Download The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow And Other Stories books, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories by an American writer Washington Irving. The story is set in the end of the 18th century in the Dutch settlement of Tarry Town, called Sleepy Hollow. Ichabod Crane, a lean, lanky and extremely superstitious teacher from Connecticut competes with Abraham "Brom Bones" Van Brunt for the hand of 18-year-old Katrina Van Tassel, the daughter and sole child of a wealthy farmer, Baltus Van Tassel. One autumn night, when Ichabod was returning from the party at the Van Tassels' homestead, he was followed by a rider without a head. Presumably, it was a ghost of Hessian cavalryman, who had been beheaded by a stray shot in one of the “unnamed battles” during the War of Independence (USA) and after that “rode during the night in a search of his head”…

The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow

by Washington Irving, The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow books, In the bosom of one of those spacious coves which indent the easternshore of the Hudson, at that broad expansion of the river denominatedby the ancient Dutch navigators the Tappan Zee, and where they alwaysprudently shortened sail and implored the protection of St. Nicholaswhen they crossed, there lies a small market town or rural port, whichby some is called Greensburgh, but which is more generally and properlyknown by the name of Tarry Town. This name was given, we are told, informer days, by the good housewives of the adjacent country, from theinveterate propensity of their husbands to linger about the villagetavern on market days. Be that as it may, I do not vouch for the fact,but merely advert to it, for the sake of being precise and authentic.Not far from this village, perhaps about two miles, there is a littlevalley or rather lap of land among high hills, which is one of thequietest places in the whole world. A small brook glides through it,with just murmur enough to lull one to repose; and the occasionalwhistle of a quail or tapping of a woodpecker is almost the only soundthat ever breaks in upon the uniform tranquillity.I recollect that, when a stripling, my first exploit insquirrel-shooting was in a grove of tall walnut-trees that shades oneside of the valley. I had wandered into it at noontime, when all natureis peculiarly quiet, and was startled by the roar of my own gun, as itbroke the Sabbath stillness around and was prolonged and reverberatedby the angry echoes. If ever I should wish for a retreat whither I mightsteal from the world and its distractions, and dream quietly away theremnant of a troubled life, I know of none more promising than thislittle valley.From the listless repose of the place, and the peculiar character of itsinhabitants, who are descendants from the original Dutch settlers, thissequestered glen has long been known by the name of SLEEPY HOLLOW, andits rustic lads are called the Sleepy Hollow Boys throughout all theneighboring country. A drowsy, dreamy influence seems to hang over theland, and to pervade the very atmosphere. Some say that the placewas bewitched by a High German doctor, during the early days of thesettlement; others, that an old Indian chief, the prophet or wizard ofhis tribe, held his powwows there before the country was discovered byMaster Hendrick Hudson. Certain it is, the place still continues underthe sway of some witching power, that holds a spell over the minds ofthe good people, causing them to walk in a continual reverie. They aregiven to all kinds of marvellous beliefs, are subject to trances andvisions, and frequently see strange sights, and hear music and voices inthe air. The whole neighborhood abounds with local tales, haunted spots,and twilight superstitions; stars shoot and meteors glare oftener acrossthe valley than in any other part of the country, and the nightmare,with her whole ninefold, seems to make it the favorite scene of hergambols.

Verlust

by Paul Harding, Verlust Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Verlust books, Für »Tinkers« wurde Paul Harding mit dem Pulitzerpreis ausgezeichnet. Nun schreibt er die Geschichte der Familie Crosby, die in dem Städtchen Enon in Maine lebt, fort. Er erzählt vom Enkel George Washington Crosbys, davon, wie Charlie Crosby seine Familie verliert und fast auch seine Existenz. Grandiose Sprachbilder, intensive Naturbeobachtungen, visionäre Träume und immer wieder Erinnerungen, schmerzhaft und süß, bestimmen diesen herzzerreißenden Roman über Zeit und Sterblichkeit und den Verlust eines geliebten Menschen. »Die meisten Männer aus meiner Familie machen ihre Frauen zu Witwen und ihre Kinder zu Waisen. Ich bin die Ausnahme. Mein einziges Kind, Kate, wurde mit dreizehn von einem Auto angefahren und getötet, als sie mit dem Fahrrad vom Strand nach Hause fuhr.« Damit beginnt die Geschichte von Charlie Crosby aus Enon, von seinem Weg durch die Hölle und, vielleicht, wieder zurück. Denn seine Trauer ist so maßlos, so allumfassend und unversöhnlich, dass sie sein Leben immer mehr zerstört. Seine Frau verlässt ihn bald nach dem Tod der Tochter, und Charlie, der sich in einem seiner Wutanfälle die Hand gebrochen hat, ernährt sich seitdem mehr oder weniger von Schmerztabletten und Alkohol und verwahrlost zusehends. Er kann sich um die Außenwelt nicht mehr kümmern, zu sehr nimmt ihn sein Innenleben gefangen: Gegenwart und Vergangenheit durchdringen sich, Erinnerungen an den verstorbenen Großvater, lange Spaziergänge und Vogelbeobachtungen in den Wäldern von Maine, die Geschichte von Enon und auch von Salem, das ganz in der Nähe liegt, und seinen Hexen in früheren Zeiten – all das bestimmt seine Gedanken und sein Sein. Vor allem aber sind da immer wieder Erlebnisse und Gespräche mit seiner über alles geliebten Tochter, Entwürfe verschiedener Leben, die er mit ihr hätte erleben wollen. Denn er kann und will ihren Tod nicht akzeptieren ...
