Event Description:
Stories by Hans Christian Andersen have inspired ballets, plays and films. They consist of “The Little Mermaid,” The Emperor’s New Clothes,” “The Nightingale,” and “The Ugly Duckling” to name a few. Padma Viswanathan, author and instructor in Creative Writing at the U of A will conduct close readings of a selection of tales by Andersen, discussing their technical merits, the way they bridge tradition and modernity, and the ways they draw on and refract the author’s biography. This course for aspiring authors will conclude by writing from prompts inspired by the tales.
