Rip Van Winkle Setting

Satisfactory Essays
The setting in "Rip Van Winkle" is a small and very old village at the foot of the mountains. This being the setting helps the reader see what kind of town that they are talking about rather than not saying at all and just assuming what it looks like, but that's not how it looks according to the author. They describe it as an old town, so when he wakes back up twenty years later and goes back into the village from the mountains than he realizes that everything has changed and it's not the same old village.
