In the story, Ichabod Crane is a man with purely good intentions not only for himself, but for others as well. It is clear that in school his selfless actions were solely based for the good of the students. At the end of the story, all I could do was sympathize for Ichabod Crane because of his apparent good morals and the result of his fate. As seeing the movie Sleepy Hollows prior to it being shown in class, I can say that I do not feel as much sympathy for Ichabod in the movie. I can still see the character's similar characteristics and traits, however the endings of both of these stories vary just enough to the degree where I do not feel as emotionally tied to Ichabod as I did in the story opposed to the movie.
