I have registered for a free online course to study the Fairy Tales of Hans Christian Anderson. It is presented by the Anderson Center in his hometown in Denmark. I thought that others might also be interested. You can register Here
While Anderson’s tales were simple enough for a child to grasp, they were not written only for the child. Rather, they were written for people who can still think and feel with the heart and mind of a child.
Hans Christian Anderson is described as a restless person who, although he was successful, never actually felt successful or at peace. Andersen referred to himself a bog plant that was mired in mud but reaching toward the light.
