    When he wakes up in the morning, he is anxious about what Dame Van Winkle will say about his late return. The dogs, too, not one of which he recognized for an old acquaintance, barked at him as he passed. Peter was the most ancient inhabitant of the village, and well versed in all the wonderful events and traditions of the neighborhood. It at last settled down precisely to the tale I have related, and not a man, woman, or child in the neighborhood, but knew it by heart.

Evening was gradually advancing; the mountains began to throw their long blue shadows over the valleys. The orator bustled up to him and, drawing him partly aside, inquired "on which side he voted? As Rip and his companion approached them, they suddenly desisted from their play, and stared at him with such fixed statue-like gaze, and such strange, uncouth, lack-lustre countenances, that his heart turned within him, and his knees smote together. He recollected Rip at once, and corroborated his story in the most satisfactory manner. To make a long story short, the company broke up, and returned to the more important concerns of the election.

    Van Winkle is a quiet, kind man who lives in a village at the foot of Rip van Winkle book Kaatskill mountains just prior to the Revolutionary War. Here they used to sit in the shade through a long lazy summer's day, talking listlessly over village gossip, or telling endless sleepy stories about nothing. He is also happy that he is free of his wife and may do as he pleases without her input. After a series of losses, the business soon went under and Irving returned to writing. Things distanced by time can be simplified to fit into the romantic, whereas this reshaping is much harder to accomplish with modernity.
