Biographie de l'auteur

Hans Christian Andersen (2 April 1805 – 4 August 1875) was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales. Andersen's popularity is not limited to children; his stories, called eventyr in Danish, or "fairy-tales" in English, express themes that transcend age and nationality. 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. Some of his most famous fairy tales include "The Little Mermaid", "The Snow Queen", "The Ugly Duckling", "The Nightingale", "The Emperor's New Clothes" and many more. His stories have inspired plays, ballets, and both live-action and animated films. Hans Christian Andersen was born in the town of Odense, Denmark, on Tuesday, 2 April 1805. He was an only child. Andersen's father, also Hans, considered himself related to nobility. His paternal grandmother had told his father that their family had in the past belonged to a higher social class, but investigations prove these stories unfounded. Theories that Andersen may have been an illegitimate son of King Christian VIII persist. Andersen's father, who had received an elementary education, introduced Andersen to literature, reading him Arabian Nights. Andersen's mother, Anne Marie Andersdatter, was uneducated and worked as a washerwoman following his father's death in 1816, remarrying in 1818. Andersen was sent to a local school for poor children where he received a basic education and was forced to support himself, working as a weaver's apprentice and, later, for a tailor. At 14, he moved to Copenhagen to seek employment as an actor. Having an excellent soprano voice, he was accepted into the Royal Danish Theatre, but his voice soon changed. A colleague at the theatre told him that he considered Andersen a poet. Taking the suggestion seriously, Andersen began to focus on writing. Andersen's childhood home in Odense Jonas Collin, director of the Royal Danish Theatre, felt a great affection for him, and sent him to a grammar school in Slagelse, persuading King Frederick VI to pay part of his education. Andersen had already published his first story, The Ghost at Palnatoke's Grave, in 1822. Though not a keen student, he also attended school at Elsinore until 1827.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 After comparing many, I think this is the BEST Andersen collection! 1 mars 2012
Par Amy Green - Publié sur

I did a search for the highest-rated collections of Andersen fairy tales on Amazon, and then checked them all out from my local library. Even though this collection didn't show up in my Amazon list, I also checked it out. And I like it MUCH better than the others*, both for the translation and for the illustrations.

All my life I've felt lukewarm about Andersen's fairy tales. But they are so alive, vibrant and emotive in this collection that I now see why his works are so highly regarded. I'm a converted Andersen fan because of this book! I love it. It will make a beautiful addition to my library!

This translation is elegant and lyrical, yet very simple and conversational, just the way it is in the original Danish. Most of the other translations were either so complex and formal or so abridged and simplified that they didn't pull me in, but this one allowed me to immediately and vividly picture everything being described. The words are large and well spaced, not cramped together on the page, which draws me in even more, and which I would imagine a child would prefer as well.

Accompanying the words are beautiful full-page gold-leaf illustrations throughout, at least one per story. They remind me very much of the work of Gustav Klimt (who did "The Kiss") with some medieval touches as well. I think they match the stories perfectly, especially the colorful gold-leaf ornamentation, which to me parallels the richness of the details and depth of the emotions captured in the fairy tails.

AND this collection has FORTY fairy tales, more than most (or maybe all) of the other illustrated volumes.

*The other translations I perused are: Erik Haugaard, Lily Owens, Tiina Nunnally, Anthea Bell, Reginald Spink, Lucas/Paull, Sheila Black (abridged, yuck!), and Maria Tatar (annotated, which was REALLY distracting), and maybe some others.

A Dear Friend,Artist as well as Kay Nielsen said, "you have to see His Works".What a pure Delight.The Illustrations of Hans C.Andersen are Lovely. You may think of Director, Tim Burton immediately in his Animated Work. More Vertical than Horizontal.People are Taller than may Believe.Was the Primary Illustrator of 1001 Arabian Nights.If Found, can Afford, Scoop Up Immediately. His Works are Whimsy,Fun and Children will Delight.
