The elements of myth in H.C. Andersen's fairy tales
University of Priština - Kosovska Mitrovica, Faculty of Teacher Education, Prizren-Leposavić
Keywords: fairy tale; literature for children; dedication; sacral; wizard; mirror
There is no doubt that diachronic links in H.C. Andersen's fairy tales 'lead' to noble motives and hence even to social functions of myth (rite) towards literature in general. The very important development of motives has its own artistic refines. Within the general plan of semantic acceptability in his fairy tales from mythology via folklore to literature, sacral characters have important and fringe-zone meaning because they underline the idea for transfer. The dedication motive is present everywhere in children prose writings and such is the case with Andersen, too. The idea of transfer aiming to change the social status, 'carried out' by the dedication myths is also realized through the mirror characters.
