Hans Christian Andersen (Danish pronunciation: [ˈhanˀs ˈkʰʁæʂd̥jan ˈɑnɐsn̩]}) (April 2, 1805August 4, 1875) was a Danish author and poet was noted for his children’s stories, including “The Steadfast Tin Soldier“, “The Snow Queen“, “The Little Mermaid“, “Thumbelina“, “The Little Match Girl“, “The Ugly Duckling” and “The Red Shoes“. During his lifetime he was acclaimed for having delighted children worldwide and was feted by royalty. His poetry and stories, translated into more than 150 languages and still issued in great printing runs, have inspired motion pictures, plays, ballets, and animated films.

Andersen’s Fairy Tales

 It was during 1835 that Andersen published the first installment of his immortal Fairy Tales (Danish: Eventyr). More stories, completing the first volume, were published in 1836 and 1837. The quality of these stories was not immediately recognised, and they sold poorly. At the same time, Andersen enjoyed more success with two novels: O.T. (1836) and Only a Fiddler. His Specialty book that is still known today was the Ugly Duckling (1837).

Meetings with Dickens

In June 1847, Andersen paid his first visit to England and enjoyed a triumphal social success during the summer. The Countess of Blessington invited him to her parties where intellectual and famous people could meet, and it was at one party that he met Charles Dickens for the first time. They shook hands and walked to the veranda which was of much joy to Andersen. He wrote in his diary “We had come to the veranda, I was so happy to see and speak to England’s now living writer, whom I love the most.”

Ten years later, Andersen visited England, primarily to visit Dickens. He stayed at Dickens’ home for five weeks, oblivious to Dickens’ increasingly blatant hints for him to leave. Dickens’ daughter said of Andersen, “He was a bony bore, and stayed on and on. Shortly after Andersen left, Dickens published David Copperfield, featuring the obsequious Uriah Heep, who is said to have been modeled on Andersen. Andersen himself greatly enjoyed the visit, and never understood why Dickens stopped answering his letters.






The Little Mermaid” (Danish: Den lille havfrue) is a fairy tale by the Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen about a young mermaid willing to give up her life in the sea and her identity as a mermaid to gain a human soul and the love of a human prince. The tale was first published in 1837 and has been adapted to various media including musical theater and animated film.
















The tale of The Snow Queen is one of the best known children’s fairytales written by the outstanding Danish storyteller, Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875). The Snow Queen was first published in 1845. Like all of Andersen’s fairy stories, the story of the Snow Queen teaches children good moral values through the triumph of good over evil, proving that love conquers all. This magical adventure is about two poor children, a boy and a girl, who are best friends until the bitter Snow Queen takes Kay away to her palace, and turns his heart to ice. Gerda, determined to find him, is challenged by many obstacles as she embarks on an unforgettable journey to rescue her kidnapped friend.

  13. Very nice article and pictures. I was wathing a movie the other day that briefly mentioned his name and that he was from Denmark. As a child, I was a big fan of his work but knew little about him. Today, out of the blue I got the idea that he was born in April and as I thought more, I wondered if it was today and began my search. I have no idea how I knew this but here I am. So I thought I would look for some illistrations by Hans Christian Anderson to possibly incorporate into my art. (I do fused glass work at my home in San Diego, California) Thank you for putting all this information on here.
