The UK newspapers The Guardian and New Statesman have given glowing reviews to a new translation of Hans Christian Andersen by Tiina Nunnally, an affiliate member of the Department’s faculty.

The Guardian calls Nunnally’s translation of Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen (to be published in the USA in March 2005 by Viking Penguin) “wonderfully apt, managing to catch [Andersen’s] lurching, staccato style and his anarchic, amoral universe.” The New Statesman says her “wonderful new translations of Andersen are an invitation to open-ended, mind-engaging reading.”

Nunnally, who has translated books by Sigrid Undset, P.O. Enquist and Peter Høeg, is a former graduate student in the Department and has taught seminars for a number of years focusing on translation.
