BBC Radio 4 „Great Lives“: Hans Christian Andersen

Logo BBC bei Wikimedia Commons„Michael Booth picks Hans Chris­t­ian Ander­sen with a lit­tle help from Michael Rosen, author of many children’s books, includ­ing We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.
Hans Chris­t­ian Ander­sen was ‚a very strange orchid,‘ says Michael Booth. He was born in 1806 in Den­mark, and today is still famous for so many sto­ries that every child knows, 156 in total. His own life is almost as odd as the tales he told. A neu­rot­ic hypochon­dri­ac, he escaped a ter­ri­ble child­hood and trav­elled to Copen­hagen to make his name.
Help­ing to tell the sto­ry of his life is Michael Rosen, the author of many books for chil­dren includ­ing ‚We’re Going on a Bear Hunt‘.
Michael Booth is the author of The Almost Near­ly Per­fect Peo­ple: Behind the Myth of the Scan­di­na­vian Utopia.
And Hans Chris­t­ian Ander­sen is the author of The Lit­tle Mer­maid and The Emperor’s New Clothes.“
