The Nightingale (fairy tale)
When the Emperor is near death, the nightingale's song restores his health. Well received upon its publication in Copenhagen in in New Fairy Tales. First Volume. First Collection , the tale is believed to have been inspired by the author's unrequited love for opera singer Jenny Lind , the "Swedish nightingale".
The story has been adapted to opera, ballet, musical play , television drama and animated film. The Emperor of China learns that one of the most beautiful things in his empire is the song of the nightingale. When he orders the nightingale brought to him, a kitchen maid the only one at court who knows of its whereabouts leads the court to a nearby forest, where the nightingale agrees to appear at court; it remains as the Emperor's favorite.
When the Emperor is given a bejeweled mechanical bird he loses interest in the real nightingale, who returns to the forest. The mechanical bird eventually breaks down; and the Emperor is taken deathly ill a few years later.
The real nightingale learns of the Emperor's condition and returns to the palace; whereupon Death is so moved by the nightingale's song that he allows the Emperor to live. According to Andersen's date book for , "The Nightingale" was composed on 11 and 12 October ,  and "began in Tivoli ", an amusement park and pleasure garden with Chinese motifs in Copenhagen that opened in the summer of The tale was first published by C.
First Collection. The tale was critically well received, and furthered Andersen's success and popularity. Andersen met Swedish opera singer Jenny Lind — in , and experienced an unrequited love for the singer. Lind preferred a platonic relationship with Andersen, and wrote to him in , "God bless and protect my brother is the sincere wish of his affectionate sister".
Jenny was the illegitimate daughter of a schoolmistress, and established herself at the age of eighteen as a world class singer with her powerful soprano. Andersen's "The Nightingale" is generally considered a tribute to her. Through her I learned that one must forget one's self in the service of the Supreme. No books, no men, have had a more ennobling influence upon me as a poet than Jenny Lind".
Strangely enough, the nightingale story became a reality for Jenny Lind in —, when she fell in love with the Polish composer Fryderyk Chopin — His letters reveal that he felt "better" when she sang for him, and Jenny Lind arranged a concert in London to raise funds for a tuberculosis hospital. Soon after, she had to flee the cholera epidemic, but returned to Paris shortly before he died of tuberculosis on 17 October Jenny Lind devoted the rest of her life to enshrining Chopin's legacy.
Lind never recovered. She wrote to Andersen on 23 November from Florence: "I would have been happy to die for this my first and last, deepest, purest love. Andersen, whose own father died of tuberculosis, may have been inspired by " Ode to a Nightingale " , a poem John Keats wrote in anguish over his brother Tom's death of tuberculosis. Keats even evokes an emperor: "Thou was not born for death, immortal Bird!
Keats died of tuberculosis in , and is buried in Rome, a city that continued to fascinate Andersen long after his first visit in Thus it is a pity to regard "The Nightingale" as simply the story of Andersen's passion for the singer Jenny Lind, when it is equally important to focus on what the tale says about art, love, nature, being, life, and death, or on the uniquely beautiful and highly original way in which these issues are treated.
Andersen's works are great, but it has become customary to make them seem small. It has been and still is the task of interpreters of Hans Christian Andersen's life and work to adjust this picture and to try to show him as a thinking poet.
Jeffrey and Diane Crone Frank have noted that the fairy tale "was no doubt inspired by Andersen's crush on Jenny Lind, who was about to become famous throughout Europe and the United States as the Swedish Nightingale.
He had seen her that fall, when she was performing in Copenhagen. Copenhagen's celebrated Tivoli Gardens opened that season, and its Asian fantasy motif was even more pronounced than it is today.
Andersen had been a guest at the opening in August and returned for a second visit in October. In his diary that night he wrote: 'At Tivoli Gardens. Started the Chinese fairy tale.
The tale gains more poignance in the age of recorded music. The story has inspired the creation of several notable adaptations. Jerry Pinkney adapted the story in a children's picture book. In Flemish author Peter Verhelst and illustrator Carll Cneut published their adaptation of the story in the children's book Het geheim van de keel van de nachtegaal.
The story is briefly alluded to in the anime The Big O. In the episode, Dorothy, Dorothy , the character of R. Dorothy Wainwright is revealed be an android, built for a wealthy businessman, Timothy Wainwright, to replace his daughter who had died years ago. Her builder even refers to her as "nightingale. The title also constitutes the first four words of one of the poems within the collection, entitled 'The Emperor and The Nightingale.
The fascination with the mechanical is most evident. How common it looks, said the chamberlain . The ladies took some water into their mouths to try and make the same gurgling, thinking so to equal the nightingale. The music-master wrote five-and-twenty volumes about the artificial bird. Even Death himself listened to the song and said, 'Go on, little nightingale, go on!

Все равно расскажите. ГЛАВА 15 Сьюзан Флетчер расположилась за компьютерным терминалом Третьего узла. Этот узел представлял собой звуконепроницаемую уединенную камеру, расположенную неподалеку от главного зала. Двухдюймовое искривленное стекло односторонней видимости открывало перед криптографами панораму зала, не позволяя увидеть камеру снаружи.
Но, сэр, мутация… - Немедленно! - крикнул Стратмор. Чатрукьян некоторое время смотрел на него, лишившись дара речи, а потом бегом направился прочь из шифровалки. Стратмор повернулся и с удивлением увидел Хейла.
Беккер вежливо улыбнулся и вышел на улицу - в душную севильскую ночь. ГЛАВА 42 Вернувшись в комнату, Сьюзан, не находя себе места, нервно ходила из угла в угол, терзаясь мыслью о том, что так и не выбрала момент, чтобы разоблачить Хейла. А тот спокойно сидел за своим терминалом.
Машина упала на бок и замерла. На затекших ногах Беккер прошел через вращающуюся дверь.
Даже через несколько часов после смерти лицо азиата отливало чуть розоватым загаром. Тело же его было бледно-желтого цвета - кроме крохотного красноватого кровоподтека прямо над сердцем. Скорее всего от искусственного дыхания и массажа сердца, - подумал Беккер. - Жаль, что бедняге это не помогло.
Сьюзан ни слова не сказала об истинной причине своей беседы с Дэвидом Беккером - о том, что она собиралась предложить ему место в Отделе азиатской криптографии. Судя по той увлеченности, с которой молодой профессор говорил о преподавательской работе, из университета он не уйдет. Сьюзан решила не заводить деловых разговоров, чтобы не портить настроение ни ему ни .
Верно. Сьюзан на секунду задумалась. - ARA обслуживает в основном американских клиентов.
Спасибо, - сказал Беккер. - Я сегодня улетаю.
