    Questo racconto in stile gotico, reso celebre dal film omonimo, è stato scritto da Washington Irving nel 1819. Questo e il racconto seguente, “Il fidanzato fantasma” , ironizzano sulle superstizioni e sulla credulità popolare, facendo intravedere spiegazioni ben più banali. Completano la raccolta quattro dei noti “Racconti dell’Alhambra” che Irving scrisse durante la sua residenza in Spagna in qualità di ambasciatore degli Stati Uniti.

    Here is the complete and unabridged tale of Ichabod Crane and his ill-fated visit to Sleepy Hollow. Half of the charm of the tale is Irving's beautiful prose, as he describes the glorious New England countryside. But of course there are chills galore when the Headless Horseman appears.
