Washington Irving and the American Indian.
Littlefield, Daniel F., Jr.
American Indian Quarterly, v5 n2 p135-54 May 1979
Some modern scholars feel that Washington Irving vacillated between romanticism and realism in his literary treatment of the American Indian. However, a study of all his works dealing with Indians, placed in context with his non-Indian works, reveals that his attitude towards Indians was intelligent and enlightened for his time. (CM)
