Overview

Escoger los cuentos más representativos de Hans Christian Andersen ha supuesto un verdadero reto, ya que escribió cerca de doscientos: este libro incluye una maravillosa selección de los más memorables en sus versiones originales. Sus orígenes humildes y la pobreza extrema que padeció en su infancia, digna de un personaje de alguno de sus relatos, imprime a sus historias un carácter serio, duro, melancólico y, a diferencia de los de Perrault o los hermanos Grimm, exento de moraleja. Raros son sus cuentos con final feliz y, sin embargo, acaso sea el más popular, leído y querido de los autores del género.While few among Hans Christian Andersen's characters know a truly happy ending, generations of readers across the centuries have crowned him as perhaps the most popular and beloved author in his genre. Andersen's own humble origins and the extreme poverty in which he grew up are echoed in the often harsh fictional worlds he created, and this wonderful collection compiles 200 of his most memorable stories—all in their original versions.
