Description
Information
Although before him Charles Perrault in France and the Brothers Grimm in Germany had collected and retold folk-tales in ways which found wide popular audiences, it was only with the appearance of Hans Christian Andersen's Eventyr (Fairy-Tales) in 1835 that a writer appeared in the field capable of creating new tales equal or superior to those which existed in the folk memory.The achievement of Jackie Wullschlager's biography is to show in detail how Andersen's art - much darker and more diverse than has previously been appreciated - and the characters who people it, emerged from, and were an inextricable part of, this complex life.Wullschlager is the first biographer of Andersen writing in English to have returned to the original sources in Danish and to have revisited all the principal places where Andersen lived.
