The Emperor's New Clothes

short tale by Hans Christian Andersen
English: The Emperor's New Clothes is a Danish fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen and first published in 1837, as part of Eventyr, Fortalte for Born (Fairy Tales, Told for Children).
文言: 皇帝之新衣,小說也,丹麥人安徒生所著。文中所述,始於衣匠二人,晉見其君,言有新衣,非智者不可見、無適其位者不可睹。帝欣納而衣之巡狩,臣民緘默,無有直言主上裸露者,蓋懼愚眛之稱、怠忽職守之謂也。及終,稚子無畏,呼曰︰「聖上裸露而行。」 此小說譯本逾百,後世每以之喻自欺欺人者。
