Cloth, 8vo, 24 cm, 376 pp, ills. "In the first part of this sympathetic book the author traces the story of Andersen's extraordinary life and shows how often his tales grew out of his own experience. Andersen's career was a strange one. He longed more than anything to be accepted by the ruling classes and found it was only by becoming a famous writer that he could break through social barriers. He was not an ordinary man—as is shown too by his weird collages and paper cuttings. The second part of the book, a study of the tales themselves, will be a revelation to most people for, as the author says, Andersen has long been relegated to the nursery, and few adults realize the full extent of his wit, charm and sheer genius as a storyteller. The blame lies at the feet of the Victorian lady translators whose versions have unfortumatcly become sacrosanct. These women bowdlerized, mistranslated, over-translated and sentimentalized. The author lets Andersen speak for himself and shows where his universal appeal lies." - from the blurb. Edges of textblock somewhat marked, otherwise Good in slightly torn dustwrapper.

Enjoy a classic study of Andersen which considers his life, writing achievements, and early influences on his work.
