HC Andersen was not only a great Dane, he was the first to personify objects with savage clarity. Fellow Scandinavians Henrik Ibsen demonstrated that self-awareness can be deadly and August Strindberg made suffering the price of knowledge, but only Andersen could heal his cutting critical view of humanity with so much laughter and forgiveness. Thanks HC. Looking forward to your next lost story.
