Hans Christian Andersen: A Great Life in Brief
Rumer Godden's work titled "Hans Christian Anderson" explores the life of the title character and his ability to tell tales. Anderson was born 150 years earlier than the publication of Godden's work. Godden's book essentially is a biography, highlighting Anderson's distinctive gift. Godden is primarily a writer of fiction, providing a rich account of Hans Christian Anderson. Anderson is mercurial. He is lonely and gentle, but also grotesque. He is familiar with despair, heartache, and joy. He never let his failure decide his life-long goals, which included a determination to write. By the end of "Hans Christian Anderson," Godden explores the title character's travels, his satisfaction with his work, and his unquestionably well-earned reputation.
