Such an original species of writing as that in which Andersen excelled does not burst full-blown upon the world. It is the result of many experiments, many accidents, even, perhaps, of some blunderings. Andersen did not set out deliberately to be a teller of fairy stories; much less did he expect or desire to be mainly known as the composer of these smaating, as he called them, of these trifles or bagatelles. He set out in life intending to be a serious poet, a writer of five-act dramas, a novelist of passion and society. Almost to the very last he persisted its believing that the critics and the public had made a mistake, and that his ambitious works, in the conventional branches of the profession, were what he would really live by. "Don't you think, " he said to me in a sort of coaxing whisper, towards the very close of his life, "don't you think that people will really come back to ' The Two Baronesses' when these smaating have had their day？ The Two Baronesses" is an old novel of Andersen's, which I had not read, so I could only bend my eyes politely. But that was in 1874, and people have neither come back to” The Two Baronesses" nor forgotten "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Snow Queen."
When she was dressed again and had plaited her long hair, she went to the sparkling spring, drank out of the hollow of her hand, and wandered further into the forest, without knowing where she went. She thought of her brothers and of the kind God, who surely would not desert her. He let the wild forest apples grow, so that the hungry might be satisfied; he showed her such a tree, the branches of which were bent beneath the weight of the fruit, and there she made her midday meal. After having propped up the branches of the tree, she walked off into the darkest parts of the forest. It was so quiet that she heard her own footsteps, heard every little dry leaf being crushed under her foot; not a bird was to be seen, nor could any sunbeam penetrate through thereat close branches of the trees; the lofty trunks stood so close to one another, that when she looked straight before her it appeared as if one row of 10gs close upon another encircled her; oh, such a solitude she had never known before.
The night was very dark, and not one single little glow-worm glittered in the moss. Quite distressed, she lay down to sleep; she then thought she saw the branches part above her, and Our Lord looking down upon her with eyes full of tenderness, while little angels peeped out above His head and from under His arms.
When she woke in the morning, she did not know whether she had been dreaming, or whether it had all really happened.
She had not gone many steps, when she met an old woman with basket of berries, of which the woman gave her some. Elisa asked her if she had not seen eleven princes riding through the forest.
