Peter Pan, the story of the boy who wouldn’t grow up, is a century old and counting now. And still forever young in the stories of J. M. Barrie.
In 1911, one hundred years ago, Barrie penned his incredible fantasy of Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys, Captain Hook, the Darling children and Never Land as “Peter and Wendy.”
Now generations know the tale. Of the cocky, eternally young boy with his short sword and swagger. Of flying in bed clothes over London.
“Few literary works capture more perfectly than Peter Pan a child’s desire for mobility, lightness, and flight. And it is rare to find expressed so openly and clearly the desire to remain a child forever, free of adult gravity and responsibility. Where else but in Neverland are there endless possibilities for adventure? There is, to be sure, also trouble in paradise, but before looking at unsettling and disturbing moments on the island, it is worth taking a look at what makes our hearts beat faster when the curtain rises for the play Peter Pan or when we turn the pages of the novel Peter and Wendy.” -Maria Tatar, “The Annotated Peter Pan”
“Peter Pan is a great and refining and uplifting benefaction to this sordid and money-mad age.” -Mark Twain
