Fairy Tale Friday: Snedronningen: et eventyr i syv historier

The Snow Queen: a fairy tale in seven stories

by H. C. Andersen

Tredje historie: Blomsterhaven hos konen, som kunne trolddom

“Third Story: The Flower Garden with the Woman Who Knew Witchcraft

So in this story we get:

  • lots of sunshine and yellow (in contrast to the detailed ice and snow last time)
  • a little spurious; that is, it feels a little out of place, especially the flowers’ stories. After all, what does hearing their stories or being there contribute, other than having time pass so Gerda can travel in autumn
  • to know what’s Gerda doing
  • to learn its been almost at least a year since Kai vanished/was lost (winter to autumn)
  • little details: roses, roses and death
