The complete fairy tales and stories by H. C Andersen( Book )
14 editions published between 1974 and 2015 in English and held by 89 libraries worldwide
This book contains the complete Andersen's fairy tales and stories in the chronological order of their original publication. Hans Christian Andersen was a Danish author and poet. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales, a literary genre he so mastered that he himself has become as mythical as the tales he wrote. Andersen's popularity is not limited to children; his stories--called eventyrs, or "fantastic tales"--express themes that transcend age and nationality. During his lifetime he was acclaimed for having delighted children worldwide and was feted by royalty. Andersen's fairy tales, which have been translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West's collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. They have inspired motion pictures, plays, ballets, and animated films

The fairy tale of my life : an autobiography by H. C Andersen( Book )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 84 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
