Summary

Hans Christian Andersen (often referred to in Scandinavia as H. C. Andersen; April 2, 1805 - August 4, 1875) was a Danish author and poet. 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, or "fairy-tales" - 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.Contents: The Emperor's New Clothes / The Swineherd / The Real Princess / The Shoes of Fortune / The Fir Tree / The Snow Queen / The Leap Frog / The Elderbush / The Bell / The Old House / The Happy Family / The Story of a Mother / The False Collar / The Shadow / The Little Match Girl / The Dream of Little Tuk / The Naughty Boy / The Red Shoes
