Title

  • Stories from Hans Andersen

Summary

  • Hans Christian Andersen (1805-75) is perhaps Denmark's best known author. A prolific writer of plays, novels, travel books, and an autobiography, he is mainly remembered for his 156 fairy tales and stories, among them "The Little Mermaid," "The Ugly Duckling," and "The Emperor's New Clothes." Andersen was born and raised in Odense, the only child of a poor washerwoman and shoemaker. He received little formal education, but drew upon his early experiences and observations in his literary work. He once wrote: "Most of what I have written is a reflection of myself. Every character is from life. I know and have known them all." Andersen's stories have been translated into more than 100 languages. This early-20th century edition presents several of his stories in English. Edmund Dulac (1882-1953) was born in Toulouse, France, and moved to London in 1904, where he specialized in illustrating children's books. His other works included The Arabian Nights (1907) and Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales from the Old French (1910). World Digital Library.
