The Story of My Life

(1871)
A non fiction book by

 
Excerpt from The Story of My Life The Autobiography of Hans Christian Andersen now presented to the English speaking public is not a work prepared and published at one time, but it is consecutive and complete. In 1846, on the occasion of a uniform collected edition of his writings to be published in Germany, Andersen wrote a sketch of his life under the title "Das Marchen meines Lebens." This was translated by Miss Howitt and published in England, with the name, "The True Story of My Life," and has been abbreviated at different times to accompany various editions of his Stories and of "The Improvisatore." In 1855, when a uniform Danish edition of his writings was published, Andersen rewrote his autobiography, expanding the material given in the sketch, but frequently using passages identical with that, and bringing the narrative to the date at which he wrote. This enlarged autobiogpraphy has not before been translated into English, and the present translator, following Andersen's plan with his own sketch, has incorporated Miss Howitt's translation when it was available, but added all that was new in the Danish edition. A third time, prompted by a similar occasion, the autobiography has been extended. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
