    Book Review 4 out of 5 stars to The Complete Fairy Tales, written in 1835 by Hans Christian Andersen Many people are familiar with the fairy tales written by the Grimm brothers, but sometimes don t realize there were several different versions or collections by different authors Another popular one is the series written by Hans Christian Anderson The two I was the most familiar with were The Ugly Duckling and The Emperor s New Clothes In both, you see some of the horror that you see from other classic fairy tales, but these are about reality and real life situations that could occur Also, they don t always end up a positive note A few movies have been made from them, and countless cartoons and TV shows I enjoyed some of them, but not all of them I do think they are worth a read, as they provide some insight into the goings on of a working mind nearly 200 years ago It s true to form stories that have a basis in moral lessons versus coming of age sentiments Both are valuable, but they are a bit different Not quite for young children, probably better for pre teens or teenagers About Me For those new to me or my reviews here s the scoop I read...

    Not a fan of Hans Christian Anderson at all Most of his stories were short and pointless and the ones with morals made me feel like I was being preached to I just can t get with the religious tone of his stories or the weird way women are treated like the little mermaid sacrificing herself off the boat, or the prince who tries to court the emperor s daughter but she rejects him so he pretends to be a swine herder and tricks her into getting disowned with him for kissing him and then basically leaves her homeless because that s what she ...

    A powerful and beautiful book that I will undoubtedly keep at hand and that made me want to better know Andersen by his autobiography and plunge also in the Tales of Grimm.

    If you want to read the real stories that inspired the lion s share of Disney films, definitely read Mr Andersen s collection of fairy tales Do not expect happy endings however leave those to WaltCo Instead imagine fami...

    Although some of the tales are really disturbing, the fantasy and imagination behind them is indisputable I grew up reading this book and I m sure it ll be valuable for all future generations.

    Hans Christian Andersen once said, Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale And his life certainly was an extraordinary rags to riches story In all Hans Christian Andersen wrote 156 fairy tales, of which forty are in this luxury, large format edition, to represent the cream of the crop It is a beautiful, sumptuous book, the semi matt purple cover slightly textured and embossed, giving almost a padded feel It has a feature reminiscent of medallions in old books in this case an inset glossy illustration of a mermaid The paper throughout is glossy, and most pages are bordered with patterns and old gold surrounds Three gold colours are used the spine is a slightly brighter gold, and the page edges are shiny and gilt edged, plus there is a gold ribbon bookmark attached There is an interesting introduction by the translator, Neil Philip, plus copious, carefully drawn illustrations by Isabelle Brent These are mostly in gouache, and the illustrator makes much use of jewel colours, patterning and many magnificent gold highlights It is a book which simply begs to be picked up.The choice of purple and gold is perhaps significant, since it is clear that Hans Christian Andersen believed himself to be a member of the royal family Not only that, but he tortured himself with the belief that he was unacknowledged royalty, who had been cast out, and this convi...

    Strangely, despite four decades on Earth, I have almost no familiarity with this gentleman Hans If I can live another 4 decades, I doubt I ll forget about him from here on out What is most generally striking perplexing to me is how these stories came to be known as children tales, came to be widely accepted and popular rather than scorned I don t think it s just my glasses that view Hans Christian Andersen as a soul that senses darkness than light Yes, every year the trees have new, fresh leaves, but that is not true of the human heart From a Window in Vartov HCA desperately wants and loves beauty, yearns for music and poetry and life and innocence, and so we get this at the center of so many of his tales, but at the same time it is mostly apparent that these ideals are but dreams that we must continually reach for, work for, cherish when they sparingly come, because what this world is really filled with is darkness He seems to say, feel both beauty and evil, know them both, accept them both, but my heart pains that the former will never have the upper hand Throughout his tales I find his dreamy po...

    You should call things by their true names, and even if you don t do so usually, you ought to in a fairy tale. HCA, The Rose Tree Regiment I enjoyed most the first section, from The Sandman, a series of pleasant dreams for good children I ll have to read it in full some time.As for the rest, they were mostly better known Andersen tales, all of which I had read before, some even prev...
