Published to great acclaim in 1835, Hans Christian Andersen’s debut
novel, The Improvisatore, initially eclipsed his fairy tales, which
first appeared in the same year. This first English translation since the 1840s
captures the brilliance and brio, the sweep and the nuance that made The
Improvisatore one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most widely read and
best loved works.
