Iving wrote many other satires, humorous stories that commented on people's beliefs and politics. Two of his most famous short stories are The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip van Winkle. Irving became one of America's first authors to make a career as a writer, and he is considered the father of the American short story.
