  • Rip Van Winkle was a man who lived in New York, near the Kaatskill Mountains. He is a man who works selflessly for others but sometimes forgets to help himself.
  • Rip had a dog named wolf, and his wife, "Dame Van Winkle regarded them as companions in idleness" (Irving 11).
  • He wanted to escape his nagging wife, so he hiked up the Kaatskill Mountains. Up there, he found a little Dutch man, his "dress was of the antique Dutch fashion" (Irving 14).
  • He was given a "magical" liquor and was surrounded by people who were relaxing.
  • Rip Van Winkle was now subject to the drink, and he found a tree and began "sleeping on its glassy bosom" (Irving 14).
  • When he woke up, at the pub, King George's "red coat was changed for one of blue and buff, a sword was held in thehand instead of a sceptre, the head was decorated with a cocked hat, andunderneath was painted in large characters, GENERAL WASHINGTON" (Irving 19).
  • People asked him, ""Why, where have you been these twenty long years?”" (Irving 22)
