From Romantic to Modernist Metatexts: Commemorating Andersen and the Self-Referential Text
On the occasion of the bicentennial celebration of Hans Christian Andersen's birth, this paper explores how the author formulates textual 'commemorations' of his own literary legacy and artistic immortality. An investigation of selected tales from Andersen's mid- and late career demonstrates how he moves from Romantic literary conventions toward a 'Modernist' aesthetic, particularly in self-referential and experimental tales such as 'Flippperne' (The Collar, 1848), 'En Rose fra Homers Grav' (A Rose from Homer's Grave, 1842), 'Den Stumme Bog (The Silent Album), 'Pebersvendens Hathue' (The Pepperman's Nightcap, 1858) and 'Tante Tandpine' (Auntie Toothache, 1872). The paper also touches on Andersen's effort to formulate a new literary aesthetic in 'Det nye Aarhundredes Musa' (The Muse of the New Century, 1861), a decade before Georg Brandes initiated the Modern Breakthrough. Finally, the analysis of texts will be contextualized by observations from the most recent biographic 'commemorations' of Andersen's life: Jackie Wullschlager, The Life of a Storyteller (2000) and Jens Andersen, Andersen (2003).
