The famous fairy tale “The Flying trunk” by H.C. Andersen is about the son of a rich merchant who squandered almost all the inheritance he inherited from his father. One of his former friends gave him a trunk. It turned out to be magical, as it could fly, and the merchant’s son went to the land of Turks on it. He settled in the forest, and after learning that a beautiful princess lived in the city, to whom no one was allowed, he flew to her. And since the guy was a storyteller, he captivated the princess and her parents with his stories. But like most of Andersen’s tales, the end of this story was not so happy: the trunk burned down, and the merchant’s son could not connect with his bride.

Hans Christian Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen (2 April 1805 – 4 August 1875) was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, he is best remembered for his literary fairy tales.
Andersen’s fairy tales, consisting of 156 stories across nine volumes and translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West’s collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. His stories have inspired ballets, plays, and animated and live-action films.
