Abstract

This paper is part of a larger project that investigates the interdependence of Andersen's authorship and print culture. The project is preoccupied with the relationship between Andersen and the periodical press, which became a popular medium of visually enhanced, dialogic texts in the nineteenth century. From its first issue in 1852 to 1872, Andersen had 21 tales published in the yearly Folkekalender for Danmark. ‘The Old Church Bell’ appeared in Folkekalender in 1862 but was originally published in German translation as part of the commemorative Schiller-Album (1860). The paper will explore how the ‘ecologies and economies’ of the tale’s changing media networks affect its reading. It will be argued that changing national-political and publishing contexts, from one foregrounding commemoration to one marked by ephemerality, exemplify how Andersen appropriated material aspects of periodicals, and how his authorial practices sought to counter or playfully give poetic shape to the disenchantments of modernity.
