« Il fallait à la petite traverser tous ces terribles tourbillons pour arriver au quartier où habitait la sorcière, et sur le long trajet il fallait passer au-dessus de vases chaudes et bouillonnantes que la sorcière appelait sa tourbière. »

« Debout dans la forêt la petite sirène s’arrêta toute effrayée, son cœur battait d’angoisse et elle fut sur le point de s’en retourner, mais elle pensa au prince, à l’âme humaine et elle reprit courage.
Elle enroula, bien serrés autour de sa tête, ses longs cheveux flottants pour ne pas donner prise aux polypes, croisa ses mains sur sa poitrine et s’élança comme le poisson peut voler à travers l’eau, au milieu des hideux polypes qui étendaient vers elle leurs bras et leurs doigts agiles. »

« Mais moi, il faut aussi me payer, dit la sorcière, et ce n’est pas peu de choses que je te demande. Tu as la plus jolie voix de toutes ici-bas et tu crois sans doute grâce à elle ensorceler ton prince, mais cette voix, il faut me la donner. Le meilleur de ce que tu possèdes, il me le faut pour mon précieux breuvage. »

La petite sirène, Hans Christian Andersen

“Through the midst of these crushing whirlpools the little mermaid was obliged to pass, to reach the dominions of the sea witch; and also for a long distance the only road lay right across a quantity of warm, bubbling mire, called by the witch her turfmoor.”

“The little mermaid was so alarmed at what she saw, that she stood still, and her heart beat with fear, and she was very nearly turning back; but she thought of the prince, and of the human soul for which she longed, and her courage returned. She fastened her long flowing hair round her head, so that the polypi might not seize hold of it. She laid her hands together across her bosom, and then she darted forward as a fish shoots through the water, between the supple arms and fingers of the ugly polypi, which were stretched out on each side of her.”

“”But I must be paid also,” said the witch, “and it is not a trifle that I ask. You have the sweetest voice of any who dwell here in the depths of the sea, and you believe that you will be able to charm the prince with it also, but this voice you must give to me; the best thing you possess will I have for the price of my draught.”

The Little Mermaid, Hans Christian Andersen
