Several Things is a book written by the Danish fairy tale writer and fablist Hans Christian Andersen. It was published in 1837, just after he completed The Princess and the Pea. Several Things is a multifaceted work, dealing with a multitude of subjects, several of which are of interest to the public at large. It was not well received upon first publication. The critics had several issues with the work, including offense taken at its questionable content and long apocryphal sections dealing with apparently nothing at all.
