Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Cultural Writing. Travel. Translated and edited by Anastazia Little. From 1835 to 1839, Anderson wrote a novel and several of the tales that were later to make him world-famous, including The Princess and the Pea and The Little Mermaid. Throughout his life, however, he continued to travel, making over twenty-nine journeys abroad. Translator Anastazia Little has gathered much of his travel writing, which shows him accumulating ideas for his stories in the midst of foreign settings, agonizing over adverse criticism, and displaying a near neurotic concern for his health--all of which makes for fascinating and entertaining reading.
A book of travels by the great children's fabulist, Hans Christian Andersen.
Between 1831 and 1867, Hans Christian Andersen made 29 trips throughout Europe and North Africa. Translator Anastazia Little has gathered many of his travel writings which show Andersen accumulating ideas for later stories, displaying neurotic concerns in strange environments, and describing meetings with notables of the day, such as Charles Dickens, the Grimm brothers, Jenny Lind, and composer Felix Mendelssohn.
