List of abstracts for the IV International HCA conference - Hans Christian Andersen between children's literature and adult literature
The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. Existential Philosophy and Animated Cartoon.
The best of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales manage to enthrall children and adults alike. One such example is The Snow Queen. The sublimely-poetic universe created in this fairy tale may be interpreted both as an animated cartoon and a highly-intellectual illustration of existential philosophy such as was proposed by the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard.
