In the 170 years since they first began to appear, &&LSTRONG&&RHans Christian Andersen&&L/B&&R's &&LI&&RFairy Tales&&L/I&&R have entranced and bewitched millions of readers, adults and children alike. &&LBR&&R &&LBR&&RWriting in the midst of a Europe-wide rebirth of national literature, Anderson broke new ground with his fairy tales in two important ways. First, he composed them in the vernacular, mimicking the language he used in telling them to children aloud. Second, he set his tales in his own land and time, giving rise to his loving descriptions of the Danish countryside. In contrast to such folklorists as the Brothers Grimm, Anderson's tales are grounded in the real and often focus on the significance of small or overlooked things.&&LBR&&R &&LBR&&RHere are all of Andersen's collected tales, many--such as "The Little Mermaid," "The Red Shoes," and "The Steadfast Tin Soldier"--still popular through modern adaptations, and others, including "The Flying Trunk" and "The Most Incredible Thing," well worth rediscovering.&&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R &&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LB&&RJack Zipes &&L/B&&Ris professor of German and comparative literature at the University of Minnesota.
