Want to read a fascinating, insightful, in-depth and spot on exploration of the relevant and salient themes of Barrie's eternal boy tale? Yep, I would, too... and I have. Blogger Samantha-Ellen of Book Grotto - YA & Children's Books has done just that. And she's been kind enough to allow a reposting/link to her article. She has great respect for the story and Barrie's work... as evidenced by including the word "the" before "Neverlands." Do yourself a favor and take a gander at her thoughts on Peter Pan!
I went and bought a copy of Peter Pan the other week, because despite it being just about my favourite book ever, I actually did not own a proper copy. And by proper, I mean the actual text by Barrie, and not some re-imagined or rehashed or condensed version, because despite the pretty pictures, these versions just can’t come close to the real thing.
Why do I love this book? What is it about Peter and Hook and Tink and the Neverlands that makes me feel so awed and anguished all at once? Sure, I think Barrie... READ THE REST!
Thanks again, Samantha-Ellen!
I do so enjoy your stirrings and enthusiasm about Sir J.M. Barrie's masterpiece.
I am a fiction writer. Mostly I compose in the Urban Fantasy genre. When asked, I usually liken it to "The Twilight Zone" - extraordinary events emerging in everyday life. I graduated with Honors in Creative Writing from Knox College in 1993. Obviously I also scribble cartoonish drawings.
Here you will find my nonfiction - the place for me to share my thoughts with you, keep you posted on upcoming events and allow me to interact.
