Hans Christian Andersen
Homes and Manor Houses Dansk After his childhood in Odense, Hans Andersen did not really have a fixed home but spent his life in lodgings or as a guest of others. His hosts were frequently upper class families who befriended him and were pleased to have him stay at their country seats. This page shows most of his homes and the manor houses where he stayed frequently. Browse the whole page or click a location: Odense Nyhavn Hotel d'Angleterre Sorø ...

The house in Odense where Hans Christian Andersen was born on 2. April, 1805, is a corner house in Hans Jensensstræde, now the Andersen Museum.
Andersens childhood home 1807-1819 in Munkemøllestræde. It was shared by 3 families (12 persons). "The home where I spent my childhood was one single little room where almost all the space was taken up by the workshop, the bed and the settle on which I slept. The walls, however, were covered with pictures ... and over my father's bench there was a shelf containing books and songs." The plaque on the side of the house dates from 1875 and reads: The dearest childhood memories of the writer Hans Christian Andersen are connected to this house. Odense Council placed this tablet here on 2nd April 1875, the writer's 70th birthday.

48. Hans Christian Andersen - Paper Cuts
This was hans christian andersen’s own explanation of a highly spectacular page in Astrid Stampes Billedbog from 1853, where seven or eight little cuttings
”Det hele er Andersens poesi
i klipperi!
Broget, løjerligt alleslags,
alt med en saks!” (In Andersen's paper-cuts you see
His poetry!
A medley of diverting treasures
All done with scissors.) This was Hans Christian Andersen’s own explanation of a highly spectacular page in Astrid Stampes Billedbog from 1853, where seven or eight little cuttings from twice as many pieces of paper in all sorts of colours and patterns merge into one big picture. And this is also how we must regard Andersen’s paper art: as something colourful, diverting and poetic that is extremely closely linked to his lyric poetry, drama, fairy-tales, novels and travel books. Andersen’s paper-cuts cannot just be separated from his written oeuvre and placed beside it.
About 1,000 paper-cuts of all sizes still exist to this day – primitive figures and simple tableaux as well as more ornamental, sophisticated cuttings. They belong to a world of their own, but they all have their roots in precisely the same rich, widely embracing creative imagination which in the nineteenth century revolutionized world literature with a long series of fairy-tales told for children and for the child in every adult. This is why Andersen’s many paper-cuts cannot be dismissed, as they often have been in Andersen research, as mere diversions and little games or just be regarded as funny, entertaining illustrations of what is really at stake and essential: Andersen’s fairy-tale world in writing. Andersen had an urge to “cut and paste” that was just as strong as the urge to write and travel. He was nearly always armed with a pair of scissors, which could be quite dangerous. They could slip out of his pocket, and he might sit on them, which was what happened when he was on his way across the island of Funen in a horse-drawn carriage, with the result that he had to have his painful backside bathed and bandaged. But most of the time he grasped his scissors with pleasure, and when he folded the paper once or twice and started cutting from a longitudinal or transverse axis, it was always in some way a visualization of the way his magical wordplay emerged from nothing, and swiftly materialized itself in patterns, figures and landscapes. A paper-cut would often be a little fairy-tale in itself in time and space, folded in and out in various dimensions, and with a keen sense of the possible effects of depth and contrast.

Hans Christian Andersen
Father of the Modern Fairy Tale
by Terri Windling
t's commonly supposed that all fairy tales are stories from the folk tradition, passed through the generations by storytellers since the dawn of time. While it's true that most fairy tales are rooted in oral folklore, to a greater or lesser degree, many of the best-known stories actually come to us from literary sources. In previous columns, we've looked (briefly) at the literary fairy tales of sixteenth century Italy , written by Straparola and Basile, and (in more depth) at the influential salon fairy tales of seventeenth and eighteenth century France The Little Mermaid, The Wild Swans, The Princess and the Pea, The Emperor's New Clothes, The Nightingale, The Tinder Box, The Ugly Duckling, The Steadfast Tin Soldier, The Red Shoes, The Fir Tree, The Snow Queen (his masterpiece), and many others.
Hans Christian Andersen's own life had some of the aspects of a fairy tale: he was born the son of a poor cobbler and he died a rich and famous man, celebrated around the world, the intimate of kings and queens. Although today Andersen is primarily known as a writer of stories for children, during his lifetime he was also celebrated for his other literary works, including six novels, five travel journals, three autobiographies, and numerous poems and plays. The modern image of Andersen (as portrayed in the sugary 1952 film Hans Christian Andersen
Peter Pan
in the original. Both Andersen and Barrie wrote children's stories into which they carefully, skillfully embedded comedy, social critique, satire, and philosophy aimed at adult readers. Andersen pioneered this style, and writers like Barrie are indebted to him, as are numerous children's writers today — including Jane Yolen, Roald Dahl, Diana Wynne Jones, Philip Pullman, and J. K. Rowling — whose works are beloved by adult readers,. "I seize on an idea for grown-ups," Andersen explained, "and then tell the story to the little ones while always remembering that Father and Mother often listen, and you must also give them something for their minds." His fairy tales can be read simply as magical adventures, but for the discerning reader they contain much more, bristling with characters drawn from Andersen's own life and from the many worlds he traveled through in his remarkable life's journey.

Book Notes: Stories of Hans Christian Andersen
By Robert Nagle , Austin, TX, July 2002 Summary: Literary essay about Andersen's whimsical sense of storytelling. But was he better than Kafka? A writer like Hans Christian Andersen changes the fundamental question "what is literature?" into that of "what is a story?" Of course, all of us claim to appreciate good storytelling. But after the English courses, MLA conferences and controversies about canon, the learned reader develops a preference for the meaty stuff. Simplicity is fine, but complexity is better. A good story is not enough. Great works have to be more than just great stories. Hans Christian AndersenEnjoying the childish things Andersen's great contribution to literature is recognizing how little is needed to produce a story and how little a great story really needs to say. Andersen seems capable of turning anything into a story. One story relates the dialogue between an ancient tree and a day old fly. Another images the private thoughts of a

Type of Musical: Movie
Opened: Movie (1952)
Licensing Agent: Music Theatre International Synopsis ACT ONE The scene is an 1830s village square in Odense, Denmark. There we see a schoolhouse, a town hall, and the cobbler shop of Hans Christian Andersen. Nearby stands a two-wheeled cart, which is large enough to hold all his equipment, and a smaller cart that can be pushed by a young boy. In "I’m Hans Christian Andersen" he introduces himself as a world-class storyteller, who will, "mend your shoes and fix your boots when I have a moment free." The towns’ children gather round him. At the end of the song, Hans leads them around the stage a la the Pied Piper, ending up in front of his shop for story time. The schoolmaster rings the bell to announce the beginning of school—the children gather closer to Hans. He rings it again and the children continue to ignore him. In a rage, this dry, angry, apoplectic little man returns to the schoolhouse, puts the bell on his desk, picks up his hat and storms into Town Hall.
