      Something of possible interest, especially for those who might be visiting
      the UK this summer.

      3. Hans Christian Andersen
      http://www.bl.uk/onlinegallery/features/andersen/homepage.html

      The British Library is well known for its many fine exhibits, and this
      particular one dealing with the world of Hans Christian Andersen is no
      exception. This online exhibit is designed to complement the in situ
      exhibit
      that is at the Library until October 2005, and has been generously
      supported
      by the Kingdom of Denmark and the Bikuben Foundation. Visitors may want to
      begin by looking through a timeline of seminal events in Andersen's life,
      then consider an essay by Andersen's biographer, Jackie Wullschlager. The
      "illustrated themes" offered here are a real treat, as visitors can view
      such themes as "Hans Christian Andersen, the traveler" and "Admiration for
      Hans Christian Andersen". Each theme provides some insight into Andersen's
      work and life, and is visually augmented by primary documents, including
      the
      opening page of his manuscript for that teary tale, "The Little Match
      Girl".
      Users who wish to pass on the good word about this exhibition may want to
      send along a e-card from the site as well. [KMG]
