"Washington Irving had three chief regions in which he lived and used his invention: America, England, and Spain. ... Spain came last in the record; but out of his stay, first in Madrid and afterwards at Granada, he produced a set of histories and half-histories ... which, written in his prime, still hold their own among his lasting achievements. ... He remained within reach of the old libraries and the scenes in his Conquest of Granada until its pages were finished. In its unflagging chapters he tells with heroic zest and something of chivalrous elation the whole story of that terrible ten-years' war, ending in November 1491, during which the once all-powerful Berbers lost the dominion they had held for centuries." .
