Hans Christian Andersen

a World Famous Danish Author

“I am going to tell a story,”

Hans Christian Andersen

“I am going to tell a story,” said the Wind.

The fairy tales, for which Hans Christian Andersen achieved worldwide recognition, explain a great deal about the Danish soul.
Even as the tales describe the most fantastic situations, the realities of daily life in nineteenth-century Denmark provide chiaroscuro that lends the tales their depth.
Still, they contain universal truths about the human condition that have spoken to many cultures in many ages.
