Hans Christian Andersen's perception of and approach towards the Orient
Hans Christian Andersen's perception of and approach towards the Orient - his unique position in the European discourse on Orientalism in the postcolonial 19th century.
(Aspect: adult literature - fields of studies: alterity, culture sciences, European culture history, orientalism, literature)
The focus is on Andersen's image, analysis of, and attitude towards the Orient, as well as his first hand experience and his interaction described in his travel-book 'En Digters Basar', his diary and correspondences. He depicts the Orient as a culture potentially superior to European culture. His opinion contradicts other contemporary European writers and public opinion: that the orient was a less civilized and inferior culture. Andersen had a political message when exaggerating the positive sides of the orient, and this will be shown through exposes of narrative structures, techniques, and strategies e.g. 'poeticize the truth'. Andersen's depiction of the orient is purposeful, contrasting, and insightful.
