    like. The plays on the other hand showed simple scenery and the costumes gave some good detail to fit who the characters really were. The books had to really explain it where the plays could just show it. An example in the plays, the costume for Ichabod Crane was perfectly done and just how I imagined him to look. The play made up their own neat way for him to stretch with his legs really flexible. The book did not have nearly as much detail as the play.…

    Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The main character in Irving’s short story, Ichabod Crane, is painted as a “well-intentioned petty tyrant lording it over the children at a poorly maintained single-room schoolhouse through the generous use of a birch rod” (p. 24).
