Hans Christian Anderson





Hans Christian Anderson     born 1805   died  1875

A famous Danish author and writer of  fairy tales... such as
... Thumbelina.. The Steadfast Tin Soldier.... The Snow Queen

Perhaps he deserves our special attention and respect as he
actually dreamt up most of his plots....  ( unlike  Perraut  and  the Brothers Grimm
who  collected their tales from folk sources. )

Hans wrote  168  fairy tales in a 50 years career of writing
He also wrote... 6 novels
                        36 stage works
                        3  autobiographies
                        6 travel books
               plus  100s of poems....
He was indeed prolific and a brilliant imaginative writer.
