we have just completed the story of washington irving... 'the devil and tom walker'. it is said that the title itself has become a proverb in england. my question is:-
write a sentence that uses "the devil and tom walker" as a proverb and explains its meaning.
plz why isn't anyone replying?
We are volunteers who help students on the Jiskha board in our spare time. It's likely that the tutors who are most conversant with literature have not been online since you posted your question.
I suggest that you make up a proverb based on what you understand of this story.
