Hans Christian Andersen and Man's Redemption by Woman

Book - 1986
Rate this:
Hans Christian Andersen's haunting and enigmatic tale, The Snow Queen , has not only enchanted generations of children, but has also fascinated and puzzled adults. Lederer uncovers the roots of this perennial enchantment by interweaving an astute psychological analysis of the fairy tale with an account of Andersen's life. Engaging and highly readable, this book is suffused with perceptions culled from psychology, folklore, and myth.
