Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

This definitive collection of work from Hans Christian Andersen—one of the immortals of world literature—not only includes his own notes to his stories but is the only version available in trade paperback that presents Andersen's fairy tales exactly as he collected them in the original Danish edition of 1874. Recognizing the literary merit of Andersen's own simple colloquial language, which Victorian translators and their imitators very often altered to sentimentalize or vulgarize, translator Erik Haugaard has remained faithful to the original text. 

The fairy tales Hans Christian Andersen wrote, such as "The Snow Queen," "The Ugly Duckling," "The Red Shoes," and "The Nightingale," are remarkable for their sense of fantasy, power of description, and acute sensitivity, and they are like no others written before or since. Unlike the Brothers Grimm, who collected and retold folklore, Andersen adopted the most ancient literary forms of the fairy tale and the folktale and distilled them into a genre that was uniquely his own. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Biographie de l'auteur

Hans Christian Andersen (1805—75) was born in Odense, Denmark, the son of a poor shoemaker, who nonetheless was a great reader, made a toy-theatre for his son and taught him to notice every natural wonder as they walked in the woods together on Sundays. His father died when he was eleven, and it wasn't until six years later that, with the help of a patron, he finally went to a state secondary school attended by much youger children. There he suffered at the hands of a cruel headmaster, but he aquired an education and was determined to be a writer. He published his first novel and his first fairy tales in 1835; thereafter he wrote over 150 more of these stories which have become classics in many languages.

A lonely man who never married, he was also an anxious man; he loved travelling, but would carry a coil of rope with him in case of fire in his hotel. Although he originally addressed his fairy tales to children (and some would maintain he had a streak of childhood in his nature) he insisted they were 'for all ages', and the gentleness and humor that are their characteristics are recognized by everyone. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent collection! 26 août 2014

This is a terrific collection and at a great price, too. There are over 200 stories in this book alone, all written by Hans Christian Anderson, and it contains many of his classic works, such as the Emperor's New Clothes, the Little Mermaid, The Snow Queen, The Ugly Ducking, The Nightengale, the Tinderbox, the Steadfast Tin Soldier, and many more. It also contains many, many of his lesser known works, which many people do not know exist, such as the Pen and the Inkwell, Muse of the Twentieth Century, Psyche, The Thorny Road, Mother Elderberry, and the list literally goes on and on. And these are not bowdlerized in any way, shape, or form, and they are not your Disney cartoons in the least. If you enjoy Hans Christian Anderson or just love faerie tales, this is definitely the book to have. If anyone has any questions or wants more details about the stories themselves, I shall be happy to answer them. One of my favorites is the Wild Swans, in which a girl must be silent while spinning clothes from nettle into flax to make shirts for her brothers, and she marries a king, but a false priest brings up charges against her (which the king believes after seeing her the graveyard getting the nettle with lamias, although I have read another version that says ghouls), and I could tell you more, but why spoil it? Let me know if you have any questions! I cannot recommend this enough.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A more complete picture of the works of Hans Christian Anderson 19 décembre 2015
Par Sean Ross - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I enjoy getting a more complete picture of the famous Fairy Tale author. When you only read the famous stories, you get a one-dimensional picture. Many of the tales are dark, some of the heroes are immoral and any non-principal character has a pretty short life-span, sort of like the red-shirt guys in Star Trek. I wouldn't read these indiscriminately to a young child and would be prepared to discuss the ethics of the characters - is it really OK to chop an old woman's head off because you think she is withholding information? What about lying to an abusive person? What about tricking someone into killing themselves? If you don't want to tackle these issues, just stick to the famous stories.

I love fairytales and besides Grimm, these are some of the fairy tales we remember reading. If you are new to reading them you will find plenty to read and lots of morals in the stories.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I personally love this translation and completeness of the writings easily available from Amazon 8 février 2013

Arguments and discussions abound about the several translations of Andersen's works. Personally I find this one eminently readable and capturing the humor, irony, and emotion intended by the author. Some have been put off by the re-translation of some of the traditional titles - "Thumbelina" becomes "Inchelina" because of an intentional pun in the Danish language concerning the two words - but if you can get past that, the works are readable and enjoyable both aloud to children and for adult amusement at the same time (much like the prose in Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland"). I thoroughly enjoyed re-reading these all in a new light. I recommend it to anyone with a literary bent.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 These are excellent! Please offer it in audio book format, too! 12 avril 2017
