A troubled chilhood in Odense

Hans Christian Andersen's childhood was not a happy one and his troubled life in the the slums of the city of Odense would influence forever his personality and his writing. Born in a very poor family, his father was a shoemaker, her mother a washerwoman and her half-sister had to work as a prostitute. Andersen himself was often teased and humiliated by other boys because of his effeminate manners and his physical look: he had a big nose and was disproportionately tall. Despite their poor situation, his parents encouraged him to cultivate his artistic interests. His father would take Andersen to the playhouse and her mother would tell him colourful old Danish folktales and superstitions. His humble social background, his troubled chilhood and both the literary support of his father and the Danish popular folklore received from the mother would shape the writing of Andersen.

The year 2005 saw the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of Europe's finest authors, Hans Christian Andersen. His stories are well-known throughout the world and young and old alike admire his works, many of which continue to stand the test of time. Several of his stories have provided the basis for Walt Disney films or for the world of dance. Born Born in Odense, Denmark on 2 April, 1805, Hans Christian Andersen is believed to have lived a very miserable life, which is reflected in many of his stories. He entered into life when his shoemaker father was 22 years old; his mother, who worked as a washerwoman for the rich, was several years older. As a poor family they only had enough money to be able to support themselves in a single little room. Every day Andersen's father would read to him from one of Shakespeare 's plays or one of the stories written by Ludvig Holberg - occasionally, he'd even take his son to the theatre to see them being performed live. Andersen soon memorised the plays and went home to perform them in a small toy theatre with wooden dolls which he had made.

If Sculptures Could Talk . . .
Hans Christian Andersen
By Georg Lober, 1892-1961
Central Park, Conservatory Lake, New York City
Hans Christian Andersen is the author of many folktales. He wrote "The Ugly Duckling," "The Emperor's New Clothes," "The Princess and the Pea" and "The Little Mermaid." Hans Christian Andersen was born in 1805 in Odense, Denmark, and died in 1875 in Copenhagen, Denmark. His stories have been the favorite of many children and have been translated into more than 100 languages. In this sculpture by Georg Lober, Hans Christian Andersen is shown as a kind, friendly man holding a large, open book. The artist made the sculpture large enough so that children could climb up and sit in Hans Christian Andersen's lap to look into the book. Sculptures in playgrounds are usually okay for climbing. Climbing on others is not a good idea. Georg Lober was born in St. Louis, Missouri. His parents were born in Denmark, like Hans Christian Andersen. Lober did many public sculptures in a realistic style with careful attention to detail. Most of his sculptures are made of bronze or marble. He was also an advocate for artists and their well-being. For almost twenty years, he was the leader of the New York City Art Commission. You can find out more about Hans Christian Andersen at

The yachts produced in the Hans Christian yard are all hand built, the interiors are made by a small team of highly skilled craftsmen using only the finest materials. Fiberglass moldings are used in the head compartments, the rest of the interiors being of wood construction. Teak is used extensively throughout as standard, but are willing to consider other hardwoods locally available if the owner wishes. Due to the traditional nature of Hans Christian Yachts, a large amount of custom bronze fittings are used, all manufactured locally and finished in house, which include elliptical port lights, hawsers and freeing ports etc. These are available to other boat builders and can be custom made for individual requirements. w T R A D I T I O N A L C R U I S I N G Y A C H T S w DESIGNED AND BUILT FOR BLUE WATER CRUISING

You can now get to us from , .net or .org so please bookmark that site and not I have retained this site for now as a jump spot to get to the fables. This site has been deprecated because the ISP pacificnet was sold to some Canadian company and they will not allow cgi/perl to run on it now. Indeed the site relies on the program aesop1.cgi to display fables. As of September 2005 there were over 4000 links to this site, that number has been severely reduced in the past year because of the isp's unconscionable and careless mis-configuration ie: not working without the www and other broken website attributes. If you landed on this page while clicking on a link to a fable that is because I have redirected all errors to here. Any outside links of the form
      Our online collection of Aesop's Fables includes a total of 656+ Fables, indexed in table format, with morals listed. There are many more on the way. Most were translated into English by Rev. George Fyler Townsend (1814-1900) and Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914) the rest are from Jean De La Fontaine in French and translated to English by several good internet souls.
