H.C. Andersen: forskning, eventyr, liv & forfatterskab

Hans Christian Andersen: research, adventure, life & works This website hosts the center of research and study for Hans Christian Andersen (HCA). So you may find biographies, papers, poems, letters relevant to this worldly acknowledged author, who wrote for children and adults. For example, there were several conferences about HCA studies: "Hans Christian Andersen Center held the fourth international HCA conference at University of Southern Denmark in Odense 1st-5th August 2005. The theme was Hans Christian Andersen between children's and adult literature. Read more here . The contributions from the international HCA conferences are articles of high quality. They are valuable for HCA research and studies and is still often requested - but can be difficult to obtain. Therefore, we have published the speeches from the first two of the preliminary three international HCA conferences, Andersen and the World and A Poet in Time ."

Immortal Illustrated Stories

Amar Chitra Katha were the comics of my youth. Illustrated painstakingly with loving details, the immortal epics and stories of India going back over 5000 years were crystallized in these thin graphic novels. I will always remember Mirabai, for the romance between her and the god of love and war, Krishna. And Chanakya, aka Kautilya, author of the Arthashastra but better known to me for his Nitishastra - niti means political ethics. But other nitishastras include the famous Panchantra [pdf], the equivalent of Aesop's Fables for India, a textbook of 'niti' or the wise conduct of life.

"The Tales of Nations" was not an ordinary book that you could buy in a book store, and it's mysterious narrator/illustrator disappeared into the darkness of Hitler's Germany, seemingly without a trace. Learn the background, read the stories, and view all 150 fabulous colour illustrations — "small in size, but strong in expression, each a microcosm packed with action, each a feast for the eyes like a beautifully set jewel".
