Technology and Fairy Tales

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleCommunication


The Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen was born 200 years ago and lived in a time of enormous progress in technology and science. He was excited about this, but also worried about what they would do to humans and culture. This dilemma is expressed in some of Andersen's fairy tales, here illustrated by 'The Snow Queen' and 'The Nigtingale'.
