Comments¶ Spanish tales by George Washington Montgomery based on Washington Irving’s "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Young Italian," and first published in Madrid in 1829 as part of Montgomery’s Tareas de un Solitarion o Nueva Coleccion de Novelas. They were first published in the U.S. under the title Novelas Expañolas, edited by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and intended as teaching tools for Spanish language students at Bowdoin College. This slightly later edition is edited once again by Spanish language scholar Julio Soler, with a parallel translation of "El Serrano de las Alpujarras," designed as a guide to translators of Spanish texts.
