The True Story of My Life

eBook (ePub)
(13 Ratings)
Price: $2.99
My life is a lovely story, happy and full of incident. If, when I was a boy, and went forth into the world poor and friendless, a good fairy had met me and said, "Choose now thy own course through life, and the object for which thou wilt strive, and then, according to the development of thy mind, and as reason requires, I will guide and defend thee to its attainment," my fate could not, even then, have been directed more happily, more prudently, or better. The history of my life will say to the world what it says to me--There is a loving God, who directs all things for the best.

    Hans Christian's Andersen's life was a fairytale. The son of a shoemaker and the grandson of a comic actor, he wanted an education and the chance to do the stage from childhood. This lead to poverty in Copenhagen while he sang and danced, a benefactor who obtained funds from royalty for his education, many tragic days due to criticism of his poetry and his tragedies, and his travels. After he wrote his children's tales, he met royalty, the Grimm's Brothers, Dickens, and Mendelssohn. His autobiography always has that fairytale hope, obstacles, clownishness, and the almost unreal scenes with royalty, Jenny Lind, and other artists, all because he did what he wanted.
