Hans Christian Andersen — the Storyteller and His City
The Little Mermaid, The Ugly Duckling, The Princess and the Pea — the memorable stories of Hans Christian Andersen have woven themselves into the fabric of today’s culture, from children’s books to animated features. Like many fairy tales, however, these stories were never meant solely for a young audience. The morality plays of these tales were intended for adults, and in fact much of the subtle points made in these stories ordinarily fly over the heads of young children anyway.
