He is too big: The mistreatment of the Ugly Duckling mirrors Andersen's own treatment at the hands of other children and adults in Odense. Alison Prince refers to two incidents. Andersen was once chased home by boys "pelted and shouted at like his mad grandfather before him" (36). He was also treated badly at a cloth mill where he was sent to work. At first he was treated well, but when teased he cried (Prince 34). The other workers than stripped him to see if he was really a boy (Prince 34). CE
