“Peter and Wendy”
This play, Barrie's most successful, is the story of the boy who wouldn't grow up. It will never grow old. Peter Pan drops in on the Darling children. In spite of the efforts of their nurse, the dog Nana, he teaches Wendy and her brothers to fly. They soar with him to Never-Never Land, where Wendy becomes the mother of the lost children who live underground and in the hollow trunks of trees. Adventures with Indians and pirates follow. The pirate chief, Captain Hook, is followed by a crocodile that, having devoured the Captain's hand, seeks the remainder of his meal; but the ticking of a clock the crocodile has swallowed always warns the Captain.
The incipit of Peter Pan of J. Barrie is the perfect synthesis of the book. I will try to make the point using as inspiration the words of a child, namely three phrases from my daughter Arianna while in the evening she was listening in her bed my reading of Peter Pan seventeen chapters read on as many nights with the emphasis of a talented narrator :. I did not investigate the reason for her grudge. Probably she didn't like the fact that Peter doesn't want to grow. Not strange, when you are a child usually you want to grow because several tings are forbidden, etc. It is only when you realize that those years are forever lost that you regret for the lost childhood.
With Barrie's permission, the novel was abridged by May Byron in This version was later illustrated by Mabel Lucie Attwell in Showing best matches Show all copies. What makes Biblio different? Facebook Instagram Twitter. Sign In Register Help Cart.
