Geschichten für Herz und Geist: In diesem dicken Band sind 43 Märchen von H. Ch. Andersen gesammelt, bekannte oft traurige wie "Die kleine Meerjungfrau" oder "Das kleine Mädchen mit den Schwefelhölzchen". Aber auch weniger bekannte Märchen enthält dieses Buch, z.T. kurze ironisch verspielt-versponnene wie "Das Sparschwein" oder "Der Hofhahn und der Wetterhahn" oder wieder eher melancholische "Die Teekanne". Andersens Geschichten berühren, machen nachdenklich und amüsieren, die Sprache enthält viel Poesie, Frische und Witz. Manche Märchen eignen sich für Kinder, andere sind eher für Erwachsene. Dazu finden wir die geheimnisvollen, tiefgründig gestalteten Bilder von Nikolaus Heidelbach, die dieses Märchenbuch besonders wertvoll machen. Ab 6 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Denise Racine

The fairy tale of my life : an autobiography by Hans Christian Andersen( Book )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 81 libraries worldwide
"Autobiography was an obsession for Andersen. At age twenty-five he embarked on a trip and left instructions for the publication of his first autobiographical sketch should he fail to return alive. In 1855, at age fifty, he wrote his first official autobiography; in 1863, he continued his life story." "By turns vain and humble, bitter and celebratory, this self-portrait gives ample evidence of his extraordinary gifts as a storyteller as he depicts the poverty of his provincial childhood; his wide travels, from Portugal to Turkey; his friendships and lively encounters with Kierkegaard, Dickens, Hugo, the Brothers Grimm, Balzac, and Liszt; and the international celebrity of his later years. His autobiography also provides insights into the sources of many of his most famous tales. This highly readable and revealing account of the inner and public life of a literary genius will appeal to anyone who ever delighted in Andersen's fairy tales."--Jacket
