Professor Marianne Stecher and recent graduate students, Melissa Lucas and Maren Johnson, have all contributed articles for a new work on Hans Christian Andersen "a seminal figure in European and international children’s literature." According to the book's publishers, More Than Just Fairy Tales: New Approaches to the Stories of Hans Christian Andersen "takes an innovative look at the classic tales of Hans Christian Andersen. Rather than viewing the stories as purely self-contained units or simplistic narratives for children, the essays in this volume employ critical reading strategies and literary theory to explore thematic connections between the tales and thereby illustrate meaningful patterns in Andersen’s oeuvre."
