Description de l'ouvrage

25 novembre 2005
This new collection -- returning faithfully to the original Danish -- takes Andersen out of the nursery and places him squarely in the literary pantheon.
While Hans Christian Andersen's tales continue to seize the imagination with their singular blend of simplicity, eccentricity, and charm, readers have had to content themselves with inaccurate retellings and inadequate translations. Now Diana Crone Frank, a Danish novelist and linguist, and Jeffrey Frank, a novelist and editor at The New Yorker, offer a much-needed modern translation, brought out by Andersen's original American publisher.
In this collection are twenty-two tales that best represent Andersen's literary legacy. Here are the classics: "The Little Mermaid," "The Ugly Duckling," "Thumbelisa," and "The Princess on the Pea" among them, as well as largely unfamiliar stories like "By the Outermost Sea." Illuminating notes clarify references in the stories. And in an extended introductory essay, the Franks explore the writer and his times, placing the enigmatic and often bizarre figure of Andersen among his literary contemporaries, such as Charles Dickens and Srren Kierkegaard, with whom he crossed paths. Illustrated with the delicate and beautiful drawings that accompanied the original Danish publication, The Stories of Hans Christian Andersen is sure to delight readers of all ages.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Richly rewarding for all 29 novembre 2003
Par Jill A. Bossert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The presentation of this book is superb; it is beautifully designed and produced, with charming illustrations that are especially apt, as they were executed by Andersen's contemporaries.

The admirable introduction places Andersen in the context of his time, and for American readers, links him to this country in a fresh way. A perfect length, the introduction provides the kind of information that makes one eager to get to the stories, yet it is not so detailed that, as too often happens with the more long-winded variety, it is skipped. Don't skip it, for it serves as an important guide to the stories, noting Andersen's adult concerns and anxieties imbedded beneath the surface of the tales, which remain wonderful out-loud reading for small fry.
The stories themselves are a revelation--dispelling the prejudices engendered by Danny Kaye and Disney. Stories taken for granted are new and impeccably rendered in this translation. (Even the notes are great--and should be read before the stories, filled as they are with fascinating information. Also, they're conveniently placed at the end of each story, yet the pages are not sullied by superscript numbers.)
This is a perfect gift, but be sure to keep one for yourself.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just what I was looking for !! 1 septembre 2008
Par Linda Owen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Having recently visited Odense, Denmark, with a tour guide who is a true Andersen expert, I was eager to take her suggestion that I find a more authentic translation of Andersen's work than is generally available. This book provides just what she recommended. Its short biogrqphical sketch of the man presents the REAL H.C. Andersen accurately, according to what I learned about him in Denmark, & the stories themselves are not "cleaned up" but are direct translations. I especially appreciate insights provided in the Notes at the end of each tale. They give the reader an even deeper look into the complex, fascinating man. This is not your Danny Kaye's H.C. Andersen !!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A complete Andersen retrospect 25 mai 2014
Par Barb Lawrence - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Everyone knows the stories of the Little Mermaid and the Ugly Duckling, but I found that I knew very little of Andersen's other stories and nothing at all about the man himself. This volume provided new translations that are true to the original Danish in which Andersen wrote, along with notes on each story explaining certain phrases and usages as they applied in the author's time. To me, this brought the stories to life in the manner intended by Andersen.

Also included is an introduction giving insight into this talented storyteller's personal story and how it impacted his writing. Vain, but at the same time humble, desperate for public acknowledgement of his gift and always craving the attention of royalty and celebrities of the time, Andersen's stories are often taken from his own experiences and perceived slights. More than fairy tales, these are parables of life in 19th century Denmark and Europe, complete with moralistic lessons tacked onto the end.

Some of the stories seemed quite odd to me, but the notes at the end helped me understand why people would be drawn to them and how they reflected the thinking of the time. Altogether a fascinating volume of folk tales that every reader can enjoy.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Boring For Adults, Great for Children 26 avril 2011
Par Xman Zeenoph - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I wouldn't recommend buying this book if your an adult, the stories aren't very exciting and the narratives aren't very deep. But for a child anywhere from 5th grade-middle school or even high school I would highly recommend it.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Too much information for my kids 29 novembre 2004
Par Lori - Publié sur Amazon.com

What a shame! The book IS beautiful. I had hoped to give it as a gift to my 5 year old, but the biographical notes are much too sexually explicit.
