      In “Rip Van Winkle”, Irving uses Rip’s story to depict the dramatic changes of the new America following the revolution. Dame Van Winkle’s nagging is the core inhibitor of Rip’s freedom, and thus is the symbol of the past and the undesired, as well as the factor by which productive change is judged. The Sketch Book contains Irving’s two best-loved stories, “Rip Van Winkle” and “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” It also includes many sketches of English country and city life, as well as nostalgic portraits of vanishing traditions, like the old celebrations of Christmas.
