Hans Christian Andersen (1802–1875) published his first Fairy-Tales Told for Children in 1835 and it brought him almost immediate acclaim, not only in Denmark and Germany, but across Scandinavia, France, Britain and America. The tales have made Andersen a household name, yet as this study contends, he cannot be confined to the category of writing for children: his work articulated the tensions and hopes of the Europe of his time while capturing timeless human traits 'in unforgettable metaphors'.
