The author of “The Legend of Sleepy Hallow” and “Rip Van Winkle,” Washington Irving perfected the American short story. His stories were written in an approachable tone and intended to entertain rather than enlighten. 

Originally published in 1819, “The Spectre Bridegroom” is a ghost story about a baron and his daughter in historic Germany. The tale revolves around the daughter’s betrothal to Count Van Altenburg and the strange occurrences that lead up to the wedding. One of the few Irving stories set outside of the United States, “The Spectre Bridegroom” is often seen as a commentary on the differences between American and European society.

About the Author

Author Washington Irving

Washinton Irving (1783–1859), American essayist, novelist, and historian, was born in New York to a wealthy merchant. He studied law, but because of his delicate health, his family sent him on a tour of Europe, where he collected material later used in his stories and essays. The first American author to achieve international fame, his literary career served in many ways to consolidate the cultures of the United States and Europe.
