The old minister listened attentively to their words, in order that he might repeat them to the Emperor; and then the knaves asked for more silk and gold, saying that it was necessary to complete what they had begun. However, they put all that was given them into their knapsacks; and continued to work with as much apparent diligence as before at their empty looms. The Emperor now sent another officer of his court to see how the men were getting on, and to ascertain whether the cloth would soon be ready.
It was just the same with this gentleman as with the minister; he surveyed the looms on all sides, but could see nothing at all but the empty frames. That is very odd; however, no one shall know anything about it. And now the Emperor himself wished to see the costly manufacture, while it was still in the loom.
What a splendid design!
What glorious colors! This is indeed a terrible affair!
Am I a simpleton, or am I unfit to be an Emperor? That would be the worst thing that could happen—Oh! They pretended to roll the cloth off the looms; cut the air with their scissors; and sewed with needles without any thread in them.
Here is the scarf! Here is the mantle!
The whole suit is as light as a cobweb; one might fancy one has nothing at all on, when dressed in it; that, however, is the great virtue of this delicate cloth. What colors! These are indeed royal robes!
What a magnificent train there is to the mantle; and how gracefully the scarf hangs! The Emperor was vexed, for he knew that the people were right; but he thought the procession must go on now! And the lords of the bedchamber took greater pains than ever, to appear holding up a train, although, in reality, there was no train to hold. His kingdom was very small, but still quite large enough to marry upon; and he wished to marry. It smelt so sweet that all cares and sorrows were forgotten by him who inhaled its fragrance.

And furthermore, the Prince had a nightingale, who could sing in such a manner that it seemed as though all sweet melodies dwelt in her little throat. So the Princess was to have the rose, and the nightingale; and they were accordingly put into large silver caskets, and sent to her. So the nightingale came forth and sang so delightfully that at first no one could say anything ill-humored of her. These are the same tones, the same execution.
However, he was not to be discouraged; he daubed his face over brown and black; pulled his cap over his ears, and knocked at the door.
By the evening he had made a pretty little kitchen-pot. All is gone, gone, gone!

In his travelogues, Andersen took heed of some of the contemporary conventions about travel writing, but always developed the genre to suit his own purposes. Each of his travelogues combines documentary and descriptive accounts of the sights he saw with more philosophical passages on topics such as being an author, immortality, and the nature of fiction in the literary travel report.
Some of the travelogues, such as In Sweden, even contain fairy-tales. In the s, Andersen's attention returned to the stage, but with little success.
He had better fortune with the publication of the Picture-Book without Pictures A second series of fairy tales began in and a third in Andersen was now celebrated throughout Europe, although his native Denmark still showed some resistance to his pretensions. Between and , H. Andersen lived at 67 Nyhavn , Copenhagen, where a memorial plaque now stands.

The Countess of Blessington invited him to her parties where intellectual people could meet, and it was at one such party that he met Charles Dickens for the first time. They shook hands and walked to the veranda, about which Andersen wrote in his diary: "We had come to the veranda, I was so happy to see and speak to England's now-living writer whom I love the most. In the Victorian era there was a growing sympathy for children and an idealisation of the innocence of childhood. Ten years later, Andersen visited England again, primarily to meet Dickens.
He extended a brief visit to Dickens' home at Gads Hill Place into a five-week stay, to the distress of Dickens' family.
After Andersen was told to leave, Dickens gradually stopped all correspondence between them, to the great disappointment and confusion of Andersen, who had quite enjoyed the visit and never understood why his letters went unanswered.
Give me a livelihood! Give me a bride!
My blood wants love, as my heart does! A small pouch containing a long letter from Voigt was found on Andersen's chest when he died, several decades after he first fell in love with her, and after he presumably fell in love with others. One of his stories, " The Nightingale ", was written as an expression of his passion for Jenny Lind and became the inspiration for her nickname, the "Swedish Nightingale".
When Lind was boarding a train to go to an opera concert, Andersen gave Lind a letter of proposal. Her feelings towards him were not the same; she saw him as a brother, writing to him in "farewell God bless and protect my brother is the sincere wish of his affectionate sister, Jenny". The femininity of my nature and our friendship must remain a mystery. Andersen Centre of University of Southern Denmark , "To conclude, it is correct to point to the very ambivalent and also very traumatic elements in Andersen's emotional life concerning the sexual sphere, but it is decidedly just as wrong to describe him as homosexual and maintain that he had physical relationships with men.
