    I found this a thought-provoking thesis on the works of Hans Christian Andersen merged with a disturbingly bleak biography. It is amazing the depth of meaning lurking in his plethora of fairy tails. While I felt the author took too many psychoanalytical liberties, Andersen does seem to have fallen prey to the pull of superstition.
