Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish poet, novelist and children's literature legend. Andersen's career as a writer began in the theater. A talent boy soprano, Andersen turned to writing when his voice changed. The first of his published short stories attracted the attention of the King, who then became his sponsor. After success with adult works, Andersen decided to write a series of fairy tales which were initially unpopular in Denmark, but they received enormous attention throughout the rest of Europe, and he published three volumes. Although unlucky in romantic love, Andersen was regarded as a national treasure, and to this day he is loved by millions. In a discussion about the music for his funeral, Andersen said Most of the people who will walk after me will be children, so make the beat keep time with little steps.

About the Author
Author Hans Christian Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen (1805–1875) was born in Odense, Denmark, the son of a poor shoemaker and a washerwoman. As a young teenager, he became quite well known in Odense as a reciter of drama and as a singer. When he was fourteen, he set off for the capital, Copenhagen, determined to become a national success on the stage. He failed miserably, but made some influential friends in the capital who got him into school to remedy his lack of proper education. In 1829 his first book was published. After that, books came out at regular intervals. His stories began to be translated into English as early as 1846. Since then, numerous editions, and more recently Hollywood songs and Disney cartoons, have helped to ensure the continuing popularity of the stories in the English-speaking world.
