About Hans Christian Andersen

Andersen’s writings were unique not just for the expression of a childlike perspective, but also because of his way of animating the inanimate – flowers, toys and everyday objects came to life and spoke. Animals also were given the power of speech, and all of this serves to make Andersen’s work refreshing and new even after so much time has passed.
