That rare case, when the tale by the great H.C. Andersen has a happy ending. The Wild Swans is considered being one of Andersen’s most touching tales.  It is a tale about love and hate, loyalty and betrayal, hope and utter despair, and shows us how nothing can weaken the love between a young princess and her seven brothers. Their stepmother hates her husband’s children for no reason, and to punish them she takes away the voice from the princess and transforms the princes into swans. This tale teaches us how love, devotion, and faith can work wonders and overcome any evil.
