FC: PORTFOLIO

1: WASHINGTON IRVING WAS BORN IN 1783. HE WAS KNOWN FOR HIS SHORT STORIES, ESSAYS, POEMS, AND BIOGRAPHIES. HIS MOST FAMOUS WORKS CONSISTED OF "THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW" AND "RIP VAN WINKLE" BOTH INCLUDED AN ASPECT OF A POLITICAL THEME IN A SENSE OF MODERN DAY COMPARISON.

3: BY REFERRING TO THE HORSEMAN AS A HESSIAN SOLDIER, HE WAS IMPOSING FEAR IN THE READERS AS THESE SOLDIERS USED TO TERRORIZE PARTS OF NEW YORK IN THE LATE 1700'S.

5: RIP VAN WINKLE SHOWED THE POLITICAL ASPECT OF HOW WAR CAN CHANGE A PERSON'S OUTLOOK. HE SLEPT FOR 20 YEARS THROUGH THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR ONLY TO WAKE TO A SOCIETY SO DIFFERENT FROM WHAT HE WAS USED TO.

7: IN "THE DEVIL AND TOM WALKER", IRVING SHOWS US GREED WHICH IS RELEVANT IN TODAY'S POLITICAL SOCIETY.
