Overview

Stories from Hans Andersen are like exquisite jewels, drawing from us gasps of recognition and delight. Writing in the midst of a Europe-wide rebirth of national literature, Anderson broke new ground with his fairy tales in two important ways. First, he composed them in the vernacular, mimicking the language he used in telling them to children aloud. Second, he set his tales in his own land and time, giving rise to his loving descriptions of the Danish countryside. In contrast to such folklorists as the Brothers Grimm, Anderson's tales are grounded in the real and often focus on the significance of small or overlooked things.

About the Author

Hans Christian Andersen wurde am 2. April 1805 in Odense (Dänemark) geboren. Er war der Sohn eines armen Schuhmachers. Er konnte kaum die Schule besuchen, bis ihm der Dänenkönig Friedrich VI, dem seine Begabung aufgefallen war, 1822 den Besuch der Lateinschule in Slagelsen ermöglichte. Bis 1828 wurde ihm auch das Universitätsstudium bezahlt. Andersen unternahm Reisen durch Deutschland, Frankreich und Italien, die ihn zu lebhaften impressionistischen Studien anregten. Der Weltruhm Andersens ist auf den insgesamt 168 von ihm geschriebenen Märchen begründet. Andersen starb am 4.8.1875 in Kopenhagen.
