I kommission for Makadam förlag

I anledningen af H.C. Andersens 200 års fødselsdag udgiver Centrum för Danmarksstudier og Makadam Förlag denne bog, hvori tolv svenske og to danske forfattere og forskere skriver om hans forbindelser med Sverige og svenskerne før og nu.

Blandt H.C. Andersens mange rejser gik alene seks til Sverige. Her færdedes han blandt berømtheder, blev begejstret over naturens skønhed og imponeret over landets maskintekniske niveau. Om en af rejserne skrev han den mærkelige bog I Sverrig.

Andersen var ven med Fredrika Bremer og forelskede sig i Jenny Lind. Han lyttede til lundensiske studenter-sange og forsynede komponisten J.A. Hägg med tekster. På hans hundredårsdag blev han blandt andet hyldet i en artikel signeret August Strindberg, elev av Andersen.

Med tiden er antallet af hans elever blandt svenske forfattere øget markant. Måske fløj Nils Holgersson over Sverige takket være H.C. Andersen? Astrid Lindgren blev inspireret af hans eventyr og Maria Gripe af hans skyggefilosofi. Birgitta Trotzigs roman Dykungens dottor bygger på en af hans fortællinger, og P.O. Enquist portrætterede ham i sit drama Från regnormarnas liv.

Alle disse forbindelser kortlægges i bogens fjorten essays, som også tolker Tommelise som et androgynt eventyr, nærlæser den røverromantiske En historie fra klitterne og indsætter Liden Kirsten i sin rette operasammenhæng. Endvidere sammenlignes forskellige svenske oversættelser af Kejserens nye klæder, og Fredrik Bööks store Andersenbiografi analyseres.

I bogens anden del er fjorten svenske tekster om Andersen genoptrykt. Nogle af dem er velkendte, andre er værd at redde fra glemslen. I bogens omfattende bibliografi finder man de mange spor af H.C. Andersens vidunderlige rejser i Sverige.

Hans Christian Andersen was a great traveller. Of his close to thirty journeys abroad,six were to Sweden. He was cheered by Lund University students while bitter blasts of criticism at home made life unpleasant, as explained by Ivo Holmqvist in the introduction to this bi-centennial collection of articles.

He rubbed shoulders with a large number of notabilities, mainly in Stockholm and Uppsala, including his colleagues Geijer, Atterbom, Tegnér and Almqvist. He made friends early on with Fredrika Bremer, and towards the end of his life, when he had reached celebrity status, he discussed matters of life and death with Viktor Rydberg in Gothenburg. He was captivated by the Swedish countryside and discovered Dalecarlia for his compatriots, not least the painters. He visited the Falun and Dannemora mines, was impressed by the technical inventiveness of the Trollhättan and Motala factories, and loved to travel by steamship and train.

In his marvellous book In Sweden, which Johan de Mylius comments on here, he dwelled on his travelling experiences in Sweden and looked back on romantic episodes of Swedish history. He also looked forward, as he did in his poetic vision of how literature might merge with science. But his links to Sweden do not end here. In an article written at the Andersen centenary in 1905, August Strindberg called himself “A pupil of Andersen”.

There have been many such since, as recorded in the essays in this book, eleven of which are new, and three revised. Boel Westin unwinds the many strands linking Hans Christian Andersen and Strindberg; Vivi Edström shows his influence in books by Selma Lagerlöf (possibly also in the one about Nils Holgersson’s adventures), and Ulla Lundqvist takes the sad “Little Mermaid” story as her cue in a discussion of Andersen and Astrid Lindgren. Ying Toijer-Nilsson casts lights on Maria Gripe’s shadow land and how it may have been inspired by Andersen’s “The Shadow” and othertales. Inger Littberger analyses “The Marsh King’s Daughter”, a story partly set in Egypt, and compares it with Birgitta Trotzig’s novel of the same title. Hans Holmberg discusses the portrayal of Andersen in Per Olov Enquist’s drama Från regn ormarnas liv, while Folke Bohlin writes about his contacts with the composer Jacob Adolf Hägg. Anders Palm has read “Thumbelina” as an androgynous fairytale, taking her counterpart Tom Thumb into consideration – with unexpected leads to a well-known label on Swedish match boxes. Johan Stenström provides a close reading of Andersen’s medieval opera Little Kirsten, and Sven Christer Swahn of the thrilling “A Story from the Sand Dunes”, set in northern Jutland. Hans Holmberg analyses several Swedish translations of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, and Svante Nordin gives an assessment of the infl uential Andersen biography written by the critic Fredrik Böök.

The second part in this book reprints fourteen Swedish texts on Andersen, some of them well-known (by Strindberg, Anders Österling and Jan Olof Olsson), some less so (by Hjalmar Söderberg, Hjalmar Bergman and Adolf Hallman), and some now saved from oblivion (by Bo Bergman, Hellen Lindgren and Göran Lindblad, as well as some of the 1930 jubilee articles by members of the Swedish Academy). Ivo Holmqvist’s and Aage Jørgensen’s comprehensive bibliography on Andersen, Sweden and the Swedes makes evident the many traces left by Hans Christian Andersen’s Wonderful Adventures in Sweden. Now there’s a real story for you!
