他一心想加入皇家剧院,便找到剧院经理毛遂自荐,经理毫不客气的告诉这位没有受过教育的青年:回家去。

 

A youth other than Hans Christian Andersen might have crumbled under this blow,but throughout his life he possessed a remarkable degree of confidence and never lost faith in his worth,no matter how often he faced rejection.

若是换成别人,遭受这样的打击,很可能就一蹶不振了,但在汉斯.克里斯蒂安.安徒生的一生里,不管被拒绝多少次,他始终保持着一份超乎寻常的自信,从未对自己的价值丧失过信心。

 

Yet the play had shown a glimmer of promise,and this brought him to the attention of the financial director of the Royal Theater.

然而,这部戏剧展现出的一些闪光之处引起了皇家剧院财务主管的注意。
