HC Andersen is particularly known and loved for a series of fairy tales which are true classics and undeniable world literature. But his writing is more extensive than that. His adventures and stories alone comprise far more texts than these classic fairy tales. And the fairy tales and stories are also remarkably diverse, even if, despite the differences, you often recognize Andersen by virtue of his tone of voice.

Floating stasis focuses on HC Andersen's fairy tales and stories and seeks, through a series of analyzes of some classic and some less well-known of them, to find out what unites them in their differences. The book's argument is that what unites them is that they have come into existence in a field of tension between the unpredictably floating character of the literary arabesque and the predetermined field of meaning of the allegory. Hence the title: Floating stasis.
