    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

    This is an absolutely fantastic collection of Hans Christian Andersen s best work The translation, by Tiina Nunnally, is sublime and her notes on past translations of Andersen s stories makes it clear just how sublime it is If you wanted to read a version closer to H.C Andersen s original, you d have to read these in Danish.Jackie Wullschlager s introduction is easily one of the best I ve read and an essential lens through which to better underst
