We've been exploring "The Snow Queen" all season, but in this episode of Roots of Lore, let's explore Hans Christian Andersen in a bit more depth. We're getting a sense of who he was and the context of his fairy tales, and then taking a look at a potential source of inspiration: East of the Sun and West of the Moon as collected by Norwegian folktale scholars, Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Engebretsen Moe.

Featuring Dr. Sara Cleto and Dr. Brittany Warman of the Carterhaugh School of the Folklore and the Fantastic, and Sarah N. Lawson.
