Hans Christian Andersen, born April 2, 1805 in Odense, was a Danish writer and poet. In his early days, Andersen wanted to become an opera singer. In 1819 he went to Copenhagen to pursuit that dream. His voice, however, was too weak and he was accepted as a dance student at the Royal Theater. The Director of the Theater, Jonas Collin took him under his protection and remained his friend until the end of his life. The short stories book "Album without pictures," released in 1840, brought Andersen even more success. In the style of the German romantics Andersen did a lot of travelling - to find himself in the world and the world in himself. In 1840-41, after visiting Germany, Italy, Malta and Greece, he came to Istambul and returned home through the Black Sea and the Danube.
Hans Christian Andersen (/ˈændərsən/; Danish: (listen); 2 April 1805 – 4 August 1875) was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales. Andersen's popularity is not limited to children: his stories express themes that transcend age and nationality.
The background of these pages is reproduced from a paper cutting made by Andersen himself. In 2 March 2005, the same paper cutting appeared on a Danish stamp issued for Andersen’s Bicentennial, to represent Hans Christian Andersen the artist.
