The Steadfast Tin Soldier" (Danish: Den standhaftige tinsoldat) is a literary fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen about a tin soldier's love for a paper ballerina.

The Steadfast Tin Soldier" (Danish: Den standhaftige tinsoldat) is a literary fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen about a tin soldier's love for a paper ballerina. The tale was first published in Copenhagen by . Reitzel on 2 October 1838 in the first booklet of Fairy Tales Told for Children. The booklet consists of Andersen's "The Daisy" and "The Wild Swans". The tale was Andersen's first not based upon a folk tale or a literary model.

The Steadfast Tin Soldier A translation of Hans Christian Andersen's "Den standhaftige Tinsoldat" by Jean Hersholt. There were once five-and-twenty tin soldiers. They were all brothers, born of the same old tin spoon. They shouldered their muskets and looked straight ahead of them, splendid in their uniforms, all red and blue. The very first thing in the world that they heard was, "Tin soldiers!" A small boy shouted it and clapped his hands as the lid was lifted off their box on his birthday. He immediately set them up on the table.

The Steadfast Tin Soldier Hardcover – October 12, 1986. by. Hans Christian Andersen (Author). Find all the books, read about the author, and more. In the first book, Andersen's original has been lightly dealt with, in this instance with unfortunate results; there is an unnecessary and insulting emphasis on the one leg of the tin soldier, and the beginning of the tale has Hollywood schmaltz. And one must wonder why, at the end of the tale, Tuber felt it necessary for the soldier to & that the ballerina did, in fact, have two legs.

The Steadfast Tin Soldier book. This is by far the most impressive Hans Christian Andersen tale that I have read. Though the twist escalated too quickly, the ending justified it. Who knows a story eight-pages long could give me a major heartbreak?

One of Hans Christian Andersen's most romantic tales, The Steadfast Tin Soldier tells the story of a one-legged tin soldier who suffers a terrible fate all for the love of a beautiful paper dancer.

One of Hans Christian Andersen's most romantic tales, The Steadfast Tin Soldier tells the story of a one-legged tin soldier who suffers a terrible fate all for the love of a beautiful paper dancer. Cursed by a jealous goblin, the toy solider is sent flying out the window to the street below, where a perilous adventure carries him ever further from his love.

Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales are like exquisite jewels, drawing from us gasps of recognition and delight. Andersen created intriguing and unique characters - a tin soldier with only one leg but a big heart, a beetle nestled deep in a horse's mane but harboring high aspirations. Each one of us at some time, has been touched by one of Andersen's Fairy Tales.

This touching story by Hans Christian Andersen relates how a brave tin soldier keeps a stiff upper lip and remains steadfast throughout all his troubles. He is treated unfairly but never complains, and always remains true to the toy ballerina with whom he has fallen in love. The Tin-soldier trembled; but he remained steadfast, showed no emotion, looked straight in front of him, shouldering his gun. This touching story by Hans Christian Anderson relates how a brave tin soldier keeps a stiff upper lip throughout his adventures.

Read The Steadfast Tin Soldier and other Danish, Nordic, Scandinavian fairy tales on Fairytalez. On the table where the tin soldiers had been set up were several other toys, but the one that attracted most attention was a pretty little paper castle. Through its tiny windows one could see straight into the hall. In front of the castle stood little trees, clustering round a small mirror which was meant to represent a transparent lake.

Hans Christian Andersen, one of the best known figures in literature, is best know for . Although Andersen wrote poems, plays and books, he is best known for his Fairy Tales and Other Stories, written between 1835 and 1872.

What a delightfully short fairy tale of a tin soldiers life and love for a beautiful girl dancer. Even though there were not many colorful pictures I felt that Hans Christian Anderson did a
great job of illustrating this story with very good descriptive verbs and all. So, I would like to recommend this neat story with a great moral for kids of all ages and five stars,too! Great work Hans! By Angela

This is one of my all time favorite stories. I was a bit disheartend that I could only find used copies but I've had great experience purchasing used books on Amazon in the past & for 4.99 I figured, what the heck. The book I recieved was in pristine condition, a beautiful hardcover book of this quality would normally be $25.00. The story is sad and sweet. I love that it contains the original ending. I read it to my grandson as soon as it arrived..he was spellbound by the gorgeous illustrations..at the end he noticed I was crying. I told him they were happy tears and that every time we read this book Grandma will likely shed a few!

Boy oh boy- you have to wonder about ye days of olde! The vast majority of children's tales are pretty...Grimm. (Which I suppose sounds better than "pretty...Andersen".) The stories were certainly darker then.

This story actually has quite a bit going on. Wounded soldier sees beautiful dancer. Villain gets rid of soldier. Soldier must keep stiff upper lip and press on through dangers. Soldier manages to get back home to the beautiful girl and then...

I believe there have been several movies made with this very plotline.

The Steadfast Tin Soldier is one of my favorite holiday stories. There are very few illustrated versions of it that I'm aware of-And this, in my opinion, is the only one worth purchasing. The pictures speak to you... they are exactly what one would imagine if there were no pictures at all, and just words. It's a shame that this book was so hard to find. The ending is unaltered-A sad one (for those "Pollyannas" out there)-but it is still a wonderfully written story. You will not be disappointed should you purchase this book.

This book was free, but it definitely had very cute illustrations - very different from what you'd see in traditional "fairy tales" like this. The story itself is a bit sad and depressing, but you pretty much know what you're in for when you get it anyway, as it is a classic. The pictures are nice - definitely something different to look at than your run-of-the-mill cartoons.

Got this for free on my Kindle app on my phone. Mine doesn't show any illustrations (I'm guessing because it's the mobile version?) - true to the story, no surprise endings or crazy changes. It was for free, so how can I complain?
One of my favorites as a child.
