In preparing this first English translation of the complete fairy tales and stories as collected and told by Andersen, Erik Haugaard has scrupulously followed the text and the order of the stories in the original Danish edition of 1874. This edition includes Andersen's own notes to his stories. The fairy tales he wrote, such as 'The Snow Queen,' 'The Ugly Duckling,' 'The Red Shoes,' and 'The Nightengale,' are remarkable for their sense of fantasy, power of description, and acute sesnitivity, and they are like no others written before or since. For all ages! Index. 1,001p.
