Rip Van Winkle is the pratogonist. The whole story about him. The story begins and ends with him.
The story of Rip Van Winkle is set in the years before and after the American Revolutionary War . Rip Van Winkle, a villager of Dutch descent, lives in a nice village at… the foot of New York's Catskill Mountains . An amiable man whose home and farm suffer from his lazy neglect, he is loved by all but his wife. One autumn day he escapes his nagging wife by wandering up the mountains. There he encounters strangely dressed men, rumored to be the ghosts of Henry Hudson 's crew, who are playing nine-pins . After drinking some of their liquor, he settles down under a shady tree and falls asleep. He wakes and returns to his village, where he finds twenty years have passed. He finds out that his wife has died and that his close friends have died in a war or gone somewhere else. He immediately gets into trouble when he proclaims himself a loyal subject of King George III , not knowing that the American Revolution has taken place. An old local recognizes him, however, and Rip's now grown daughter takes him in. Rip resumes his habitual idleness, and his tale is solemnly believed by the old Dutch settlers, with certain hen-pecked husbands wishing they shared Rip's good luck. Taken from Wikipedia
It's the same as Futurama. A guy takes a nap and wakes up in the far future, where untold riches, adventure, and romance await him.
theirs a picture frame with king George ..then later theirs a frame with president Washington...is that what you mean
Rip van Winkle is an old Dutch folk tale about a young man whofalls asleep beneath a tree and who wakes up many years later tofind that he has become an old man, that all of h…is family andfriends are dead, and that no-one in his home village knows orremembers him. It's significance is open to interpretation, but itcould be a metaphor for the way in which becoming introspective andover-preoccupied with one's own life and thoughts can lead you toignore external events that take place outside yourself, and thatif you aren't careful you will only notice that things have changedto your disadvantage until it is too late. It could also have aspiritual symbolism in the fact that our own mortal lives, whilstseeming highly central and of prime importance to us, are in factvery small brief sand-grains in comparison to Eternity and theafter-world.
