    While the Grimms' world is elegiac, Andersen's is fast, loud and crackling with the busyness of now. Inhe created perhaps his most famous novel, "Only a fiddler". Many people of the theater and wealthy families of the city tried to help him, without much success. Standing on the balcony of the hall where the ceremony was held, he saw below him the city square, full of people who cheered him, and bright with thousands of candles burning in the windows of all the buildings. He directed his unrequited affections at both men and women, including the famed singer Jenny Lind and Danish dancer Harald Scharff. Directors of the Royal Theater sympathized with his efforts to write plays but finally concluded that Andersen needed an education.

He directed his unrequited affections at both men and women, including the famed singer Jenny Lind and Danish dancer Harald Scharff.

In British children's television channel Cbeebies, aired an adaptation of the story as their Christmas pantomime The Snow Queen.

    Over the following decades, he continued to write for both children and adults, penning several autobiographies, travel narratives and poetry extolling the virtues of the Scandinavian people. And his own personal experiences are reflected in "The Ugly Duckling," which points out that sometimes the qualities that make you feel lonely, different, and out of place are the very qualities that, when properly used, can make you shine. He died in Copenhagen on August 4, In fact, this is a book that has so much sense of itself that it is quite possible to imagine it as a character in an Andersen tale, one of those inanimate objects that develops a crush on a snowflake. Fully illustrated with the wonderful drawings made by Gustav Hjortlund. Personally King Frederick VI was interested in the boy and arranged for him to study for free in the classical school in Slagelze.
