Summary:

Sinister early American satire from Washington Irving (April 3, 1783 – November 28, 1859) author of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle. The classic short story “The Devil and Tom Walker” is the dark and eerie tale of a foolish man’s greed, hypocrisy and ambition . Puritan writing at its finest. Tom is a debased man, miserly and cruel to his fellows, and even to his wife. The Devil, shows him a grove of rotting trees, representing souls. They make the customary deal, with Walker becoming one of the richest men around and Walker begins to work at keeping his soul, despite a lifetime of usury and the dark deal to which he agreed. If you're a fan of works like 'The Scarlet Letter,' this is just right for you. A definitely religious message, but with enough horror and fantasy to draw in even an atheist reader.
