Opposition ved Kaj Mogensens forsvar for disputatsen: Livet - det dejligste eventyr. H.C. Andersens teologi

  • Kirsten Nielsen

Resumé

This article is a short version of my opposition at Kaj Mogensen’s
public defense of his doctoral dissertation, Life – the most wonderful
story. The theology of H.C. Andersen. While most scholars have
concentrated their studies on only one genre, Kaj Mogensen analyzes
Andersen’s most important novels The two Baronesses, To be or not to be
and Lykke-Peer, the long drama “Ahasverus” and various poems and
hymns as well as a few of his fairy tales. Mogensen reads the texts in
their cultural context and argues that Andersen’s theology is a challenge
to modern theology. At the public defense, I challenged Mogensen to
discuss his understanding of Andersen’s use of intertexts and Mogensen’s
own criteria for including intertexts (often biblical intertexts) in his
interpretations.
