Real and fantastic in the fairy tale “The Snow Queen”
Andersen Hans Christian
I really like to read fairy tales, because there is magic and miracles, surprises and the most incredible adventures. The real and the fantastic are so intertwined in fairy tales that sometimes you can’t make out where one ends and the other begins. Here, for example, is H. K. Andersen's fairy tale "The Snow Queen". The main characters of the tale are an ordinary boy and girl. They love to play and keep secrets, sledding and growing flowers. And their grandmother is an ordinary old woman who worries about her grandchildren and loves them endlessly. But then it blew cold, and the Snow Queen looked in the window - mysterious, insensitive, beautiful. But the outrageous disciples of the troll broke the devil's mirror, and the insidious fragments fall into the eyes and hearts of kind and honest people all over the earth, making them cruel, evil, heartless. little robber,
We so want to believe that magic and amazing adventures are found not only in fairy tales, but also in real life, and The Snow Queen by H. K. Andersen helps us hope for a meeting with these miracles.
