A band of musicians were playing airs from "Norma"; my thoughts turned into verse, on the sweet southern evening'.

The following days were spent wandering the streets, soaking up the atmosphere. On one occasion, lost in a reverie about the city's Moorish past, Hans Christian was awoken by its bustling present: Under the shadow of a house sat a young, pretty Gitana, selling chestnuts; there came peasants with baskets full of figs and dates; heavy bunches of ripe grapes lay above each other amidst the pretty brownish-red vine leaves He was assailed by the sights, smells and sounds of southern Spain, a far-cry from the cold wet flatlands of Denmark.
It is Andersen's enquiring mind and lively prose that stop him falling into that northern European stereotype - the smitten Mediterraneophile. He was very struck by the market in the dry river bed, a channel that is today concreted over and regulated.

In Hans Christian's time it was liable to flood, sweeping away all before it - market traders, cattle, everything. He was moved to write a poem conjuring up a biblical deluge: With Collin, his travelling companion, Andersen was driven up through the parched bed to the villa of a local merchant, where the garden was flourishing splendidly. No doubt a perilous location for a property, but built with a human's propensity for finding the fertile in areas fraught with natural danger. Although Hans Christian was a confirmed bachelor, locked into his own solitary emotional life, he had feelings for both sexes and was clearly swayed by 'Andalusian eyes', which he whimsically deemed 'Satan's work' - 'Where is my muse?
Additionally, there was always the bullfight, a spectacle that both appalled and fascinated the aesthetic Dane. He also found himself caught up in preparations for a royal visit. The city's lopsided cathedral was being hung with lamps, and temporary fountains were being erected that were attached to tin tubes hanging from the trees. Water would be directed along these conduits to activate the fountains as the regal cavalcade swept by. The entrances to key streets had imitation triumphal arches and the harbour was adorned with what he described as an 'airy, fluttering Moorish hall' made of canvas and wooden laths.
The money spent must have been enormous and probably caused some resentment in certain quarters. Andersen steered away from any political comment, a mantra he makes very clear when talking of his fellow German guests at the Fonda: He most enjoyed the art of strolling, delighting in the little nooks and crannies that he discovered, particularly if they had a faint trace of the Moors.
The pillars sound like the start of a fable that he sadly never wrote. He even tried to unshackle 'a thousand insipid ingrafted prejudices', a feat singularly not managed by many English travel writers of the period.

During these traveling years, Hans Christian Andersen lived in an apartment at number 20, Nyhavn, Copenhagen. There, a memorial plaque was unveiled on May 8, , a gift by Peter Schannong. Fairy tales It was during that Andersen published the first installment of his immortal Fairy Tales Danish: More stories, completing the first volume, were published in and The quality of these stories was not immediately recognized, and they sold poorly.
At the same time, Andersen enjoyed more success with two novels: His Specialty book that is still known today was the Ugly Duckling Jeg er en Skandinav After a visit to Sweden in , Andersen became inspired by Scandinavism and committed himself to writing a poem to convey his feeling of relatedness between the Swedes, the Danes and the Norwegians. It was in July during a visit to the island of Funen that Andersen first wrote the text of his poem Jeg er en Skandinav I am a Scandinavian.
Andersen designed the poem to capture "the beauty of the Nordic spirit, the way the three sister nations have gradually grown together" as part of a Scandinavian national anthem. Composer Otto Lindblad set the poem to music and the composition was published in January Its popularity peaked in , after which it was seldom sung. Travelogues In , he published to wide acclaim In Sweden , a volume of travel sketches.
A keen traveler, Andersen published several other long travelogues: In his travelogues, Andersen took heed of some of the contemporary conventions about travel writing; but always developed the genre to suit his own purposes.
- Davids Fire.
- Her Eyes, Like Diamonds.
Each of his travelogues combines documentary and descriptive accounts of the sights he saw with more philosophical excurses on topics such as being an author, immortality, and the nature of fiction in the literary travel report. Some of the travelogues, such as In Sweden , even contain fairy-tales. In the s Andersen's attention returned to the stage, however with no great success at all. His true genius was however proved in the miscellany the Picture-Book without Pictures The fame of his Fairy Tales had grown steadily; a second series began in and a third in Andersen was now celebrated throughout Europe, although his native Denmark still showed some resistance to his pretensions.
Between and , H. Andersen lived in 67, Nyhavn, Copenhagen, where a memorial plaque is placed. Meetings with Dickens In June , Andersen paid his first visit to England and enjoyed a triumphal social success during the summer. The Countess of Blessington invited him to her parties where intellectual and famous people could meet, and it was at one party that he met Charles Dickens for the first time. They shook hands and walked to the veranda which was of much joy to Andersen. He wrote in his diary, "We had come to the veranda, I was so happy to see and speak to England's now living writer, whom I love the most.
He stayed at Dickens' home for five weeks. Shortly after Andersen left, Dickens published David Copperfield , featuring the obsequious Uriah Heep, who is said to have been modeled on Andersen. Love life Andersen often fell in love with unattainable women and many of his stories are interpreted as references to his sexual grief. The most famous of these was the opera soprano Jenny Lind. One of his stories, "The Nightingale", was a written expression of his passion for Lind, and became the inspiration for her nickname, the "Swedish Nightingale".
Andersen was often shy around women and had extreme difficulty in proposing to Lind.

When Lind was boarding a train to take her to an opera concert, Andersen gave Lind a letter of proposal. Her feelings towards him were not the same; she saw him as a brother, writing to him in "farewell God bless and protect my brother is the sincere wish of his affectionate sister, Jenny. A small pouch containing a long letter from Riborg was found on Andersen's chest when he died.
At one point he wrote in his diary: Give me a livelihood! Give me a bride! My blood wants love, as my heart does! Just as with his interest in women, Andersen would become attracted to nonreciprocating men. For example, Andersen wrote to Edvard Collin: The femininity of my nature and our friendship must remain a mystery.
In recent times some literary studies have speculated about the homoerotic camouflage in Andersen's works. In Andersen's early life, his private journal records his refusal to have sexual relations.
Death In the spring of , Andersen fell out of bed and was severely hurt. He never fully recovered, but he lived until August 4, , dying of insidious causes in a house called Rolighed literally: Shortly before his death, he had consulted a composer about the music for his funeral, saying: At the time of his death, he was an internationally renowned and treasured artist. He received a stipend from the Danish Government as a "national treasure". Before his death, steps were already underway to erect the large statue in his honor, which was completed and is prominently placed at the town hall square in Copenhagen.
The year was the bicentenary of Andersen's birth and his life and work was celebrated around the world. Of particular note is an original scrapbook Andersen prepared for the young Jonas Drewsen. The city of Bratislava, Slovakia features a statue of Hans Christian Andersen in memory of his visit in Multi-media games as well as all kinds of cultural contests related to the fairy tales are available to visitors. He was chosen as the star of the park because he is a "nice, hardworking person who was not afraid of poverty", Shanghai Gujin Investment general manager Zhai Shiqiang was quoted by the AFP news agency as saying.
