It is a fabulous example of a travel book. The Alhambra is a castle type of building built in the 1200's by the Moors who ruled Spain at that time. The local people ascribed magic and treasure to their Moorish masters (magic carpets, harems, beautiful daughters kept inside the castle, Moorish soldiers, local stories). Washington Irving spent three years in Spain and found time to write these tales. The story of his travels and his retelling of the local tales is just so dreamy and so much fun. They would be great for a family sit-around read-out-loud kind of affair.

《阿尔罕伯拉》与《英伦见闻录》及其续篇《庄园见闻录》一起,组成了华盛顿·欧文描写十九世纪欧洲风物人情的姊妹篇。阿尔罕伯拉是伊斯兰摩尔人在西班牙的最后王国格拉纳达的辉煌宫殿建筑,也是摩尔人留给欧洲的、让欧洲基督教世界景仰有加的历史文明古迹。1832年作者根据在阿尔罕伯拉的亲身游历,撰写并出版了这部《阿尔罕伯拉》。在此书中,作者既生动描写了具有传奇色彩的故宫方方面面的景观,也以优美的笔调描绘了深受摩尔人影响的西班牙人民和他们的风俗人情,同时生动叙述了西班牙民间流传和历史上发生过的摩尔人的神话与传说故事。这部作品,既有游记随笔,又有传奇故事,开创了风格独特的游记文学文体。

The Alhambra is a collection of essays, verbal sketches, and stories by Washington Irving. The book was instrumental in reintroducing the Alhambra to Western audiences.

华盛顿·欧文(1783年4月3日-1859年11月28日),生于美国纽约州曼哈顿。是美国著名作家、短篇小说家,亦是一名律师,亦曾当过政府官员,是对西班牙及英国的外交官。在文学上最为著名,为人所知的作品包括《李伯大梦》、《沉睡谷传奇》等。他的史学的作品包括乔治·华盛顿、奥立佛·高德史密斯以及穆罕默德的人物传记。此外还包括有关西班牙17世纪的诸如克里斯托弗·哥伦布、安达卢斯和阿兰布拉宫的文章。

Washington Irving (April 3, 1783–November 28, 1859) was an American author, essayist, biographer, historian, and diplomat of the early 19th century. He is best known for his short stories "Rip Van Winkle" (1819) and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (1820), both of which appear in his book The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. His historical works include biographies of George Washington, Oliver Goldsmith and Muhammad, and several histories of 15th-century Spain dealing with subjects such as Christopher Columbus, the Moors and the Alhambra. Irving served as the U.S. ambassador to Spain from 1842 to 1846.

As these men have often their whole fortune at stake upon the burden of their mules, they have their weapons at hand, slung to their saddles, and ready to be snatched out for desperate defence; but their united numbers render them secure against petty bands of marauders, and the solitary bandolero, armed to the teeth, and mounted on his Andalusian steed, hovers about them, like a pirate about a merchant convoy, without daring to assault.
