Abstract

Washington Irving, American’s first man of letters of the early 19th century, has been studied as a literary and political critic, but not as a social critic. In the introduction to his Irving bibliography, Stanley Williams asserts that the adulation and eulogy of Irving during the latest quarter of the 19th century was based on sentimentality but that Irving is important to the literary historian as the exponent of a tradition and as an index to the culture of the period.
