End of Week 3 and next week

We hope you have enjoyed the third week of the course and gained new insight into Hans Christian Andersen’s multi-faceted, creative work.

Next week, Professor Johannes Nørregaard Frandsen, Director of the Hans Christian Andersen Centre, will introduce you to one of Hans Christian Andersen’s masterpieces, ‘The Little Mermaid’. We’ll see that this original, self-invented fairy tale is a very profound and complex text. Together we are going to analyse and interpret it. We’ll compare it to Disney’s famous version of the story and focus on the question of the happy ending.
