Ichabod Crane's Different Personalities
In the original written version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Ichabod Crane is an unfortunate looking school teacher in the town of Sleepy Hollow. He is a fantastic singer and fights for the love of Katrina Van Tassel. In this version Ichabod is rather interested in the fantastic and believes in witchcraft. In Tim Burton's film adaptation Ichabod Crane is a detective from New York City. He believes in purely scientific causes for crimes and that witchcraft is just used as an excuse for good detective work. Although these two Ichabod's are fairly different they both play a wonderful protagonist and a relatable character.
