The article is about the works of Danish fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen. In the study, symbolism was addressed in the tales of Andersen. Information about the symbolism movement and its representatives are given in the introduction. Then the symbols were compiled and divided into sections as death-life, dark-light, swamp and object concepts. Also in the study, the concepts are associated with real life by giving examples from fairy tales. All concepts have been analyzed religiously, philosophically, psychologically and literally, as well as works such as "The Snow Queen ", "The Red Shoes", "The Little Match Girl", "The Pine Tree", "The Steadfast Tin Soldier", as well as theoretical studies on the subject. The main characters in the works were interpreted polemically with mythological characters and analyzed through fairy tale samples. All concepts are systematically listed in the study.
