Elusive Story

We turn Big Ideas into Human Scale Stories through provocative writing and avant garde photography. This month we’re discarding the idea that the Legend of Sleepy Hollow is merely a children’s ghost story.  And we’re taking a deep dive into the music and lyrics of Robin Cisek.

Katrina Van Tassel  |  Spirit of Love

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow as told through the eyes of Katrina Van Tassel, the love interest of Ichabod Crane. In popular culture, Washington Irving’s story has been diluted into a simple Halloween ghost story revolving around the Headless Horseman. But within his book, Irving makes numerous references to the life and written works of Cotton Mather and his religious beliefs during the time of the Salem Witch trials through Crane. Here, Katrina tells her story through three eras including her experience with the ramifications of Mather’s teaching as well as the fundamental tenants of English Social Liberalism developed by Thomas Hill Green who in turn was influenced by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.
