However, the descriptions of scenery are added in by Hemingway to suggest detriment in the future of our two lovers, Nick and Marjorie. Therein lies a message in Hemingway's descriptions when he writes, "Then one year there were no more logs to make lumber….. All the piles of lumber were carried away."

Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow shows more audience appeal than Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by a better plot that does not leave the reader in question. Irving’s short story is one that keeps the reader questioning what happened to Ichabod after his encounter with the headless horseman. As Washington Irving states, “The tracks of horses' hoofs deeply dented in the road were traced to the bridge, beyond which, on the bank of a broad part of the brook, was found the hat of the unfortunate Ichabod, and close beside it a shattered pumpkin.
