Andersen's classic fairy tales, which have been translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West's collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. Hans Christian Andersen, often referred to in Scandinavia as H. C. Andersen (2 April 1805 - 4 August 1875), was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales. Andersen's popularity is not limited to children: his stories express themes that transcend age and nationality.

Some of his most famous fairy tales include "The Emperor's New Clothes," "The Little Mermaid," "The Nightingale," "The Snow Queen," "The Ugly Duckling," "Thumbelina," and many others. His stories have inspired ballets, plays, and animated and live-action films. 4] One of Copenhagen's widest and busiest boulevards is labeled "H.C. Andersens Boulevard.
