Washington Irving - LIFE STORIES
 
 
10/31/1820     Irving, Burns and Keats on Halloween
On this storied day or hallowed eve are based many spirit-world tales; some are of horror, such as Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"; some are of love, or thereabouts, such as Robert Burns's "Halloween." Among the "principal charms and spells of that night," says Burns, are those which might have the lasses "come to the marriage-bed anything but a maid. . . ."
