„Shadow Pictures from a Journey to the Harz Mountains, Saxon Switzerland, etc. etc., in the Summer of 1831“ is the first complete English translation in a projected series of five volumes that comprise Hans Christian Andersen’s travelogues. Andersen is primarily known as the world’s foremost writer of tales and stories but he also wrote a number of novels, dramas, poems, and descriptions from his travels. These travelogues form an essential component of his oeuvre and are distinguished by their artistic value and by being remarkably informative. They give their readers insight into the development of his complex character and his art of writing by introducing a number of themes and approaches, which over the years became the hallmark of his works.
