The Emperor's New Clothes by Hans Christian Andersen. Many, many years ago there was an emperor who was so terribly fond of beautiful new clothes that he. Many years ago, there was an Emperor, who was so excessively fond of new clothes, that he spent all his money in dress. He did not trouble himself in the least.
It reminds us of the never-ending human desire for power, material things and good position in the society. The time is not specific but, as in all fairy tales, everything happens once upon a time in a castle. Andersen tried hard to tell the plot and explain great themes with short and easy sentences and despite the fact that the stories were short their composition was perfect from the starting point all the way to the end. Book Summary Once upon a time, there was an Emperor who was only interested in good clothes. He was so in love with it that he did not care much for anything else. One day a few conmen appeared and told him that they were excellent weavers and that they could make the most beautiful fabric in the world. They told him they made fabrics of wonderful samples and colors with a specific feature.
Both swindlers requested him to come near, and asked him if he did not admire the exquisite pattern and the beautiful colours, pointing to the empty looms. The poor old minister tried his very best, but he could see nothing, for there was nothing to be seen.
I should never have thought so, and nobody must know it! Is it possible that I am not fit for my office?
No, no, I cannot say that I was unable to see the cloth. I shall tell the emperor that I like the cloth very much. The old minister listened attentively, that he might relate to the emperor what they said; and so he did.
Now the swindlers asked for more money, silk and gold-cloth, which they required for weaving. They kept everything for themselves, and not a thread came near the loom, but they continued, as hitherto, to work at the empty looms.
Soon afterwards the emperor sent another honest courtier to the weavers to see how they were getting on, and if the cloth was nearly finished.
Like the old minister, he looked and looked but could see nothing, as there was nothing to be seen.
Everybody in the whole town talked about the precious cloth. At last the emperor wished to see it himself, while it was still on the loom. With a number of courtiers, including the two who had already been there, he went to the two clever swindlers, who now worked as hard as they could, but without using any thread.
That is terrible! Am I stupid?
They were invisible to anyone who was stupid or incapable of doing his job. The conmen ordered some of the finest materials and secretly they sold them to get the money.
To fool the Emperor and his servants they started to weave but there was nothing. The Emperor sent him most loyal servants to check up on them.
That is the reason why they lied that they saw magical fabrics. In the end, the Emperor decided together with many helpers see the fabrics and see how the weavers work was going. The conmen showed him the cape, pants, and the coat but they were actually empty-handed.
The Emperor took all the clothes off of himself and the conmen dressed him in the invisible clothes. The Emperor started a procession where his servants walked behind him with their hands raised to hold the cape.
Everyone admired him and his new clothes until one boy yelled that the Emperor had no clothes on.
