Hans Christian Andersen (LIT2285.01)

Brooke Allen

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-75) is one of the most famous names in world literature, but the Hollywoodization of his most famous stories–not to mention of his own biography–have obscured, for many, the delicate, painful artistry of his incomparable tales. In this class we will read a wide selection of Andersen’s stories, including classics like “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” “The Steadfast Tin Soldier,” “The Little Mermaid,” and “The Snow Queen” as well as many lesser-known ones. We will also read Andersen’s autobiographical “Fairy Tale of My Life” and selections from his diaries.
