The Chinese Reception of "An Ethical Andersen"

  • Shengzhen Zhang


Children’s literature aims to be educational, and, as we are all well aware, it is also the subject of education in itself, as an academic discipline. All those classical works that transcending time and border continue to uphold noble morality or raise moral admonition. From the perspective of ethical literary criticism, it is argued that Andersen started the ethical tradition and the moral outlook the later generation inherited. The circulation and reception of Andersen in the world lies in its ethical values and its everlasting legacy for cultivating the spirit of both young and old.
