Item Description...
"Peter Pan," by J.M. Barrie, is part of the "Barnes & Noble Classics"" "series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of "Barnes & Noble Classics"
  • All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. "Barnes & Noble Classics "pulls together a constellation of influences--biographical, historical, and literary--to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works."" "Peter Pan" first flew across a London stage in 1904, overwhelming audiences with its tale of a magical boy who never grows up, who lures young Wendy and her brothers to Neverland where they meet pirates, Indians, fairies, and the Lost Boys. Following the play's astonishing success, J. M. Barrie revised and expanded the story and published it as this novel, originally titled "Peter and Wendy "when it appeared in 1911. For children, it remains a marvelous mix of fantasy and adventure, featuring unique, imaginative characters, who frisk and frolic in an enchanting land.
    For adults, the story of Peter and the Lost Boys works on a much deeper level, speaking to them about the inevitable loss of childhood and the ability "to fly." The climactic duel between the "proud and insolent youth" (Peter Pan) and the "dark and sinister man" (Captain Hook) is both a swashbuckling romp and a moving metaphor for the complex, poignant struggle between innocent but irresponsible youth and tainted but dependable maturity. Neither side wins, for the one inevitably becomes the other. Of course, the ageless Peter Pan is the happy exception. Amy Billone teaches at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She received her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at Princeton University, where she wrote her dissertation on women's involvement with the nineteenth-century sonnet.

    Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! J. M. Barrie (1860-1937) was a bestselling writer well before he created Peter Pan. His famous children's plays grew from stories he had made up for the young sons of his friends Arthur and Sylvia Davies. First performed in 1904, Peter Pan was such a success it became an annual Christmas event. In 1911, Barrie novelized the play. Upon his death, Barrie left the copyright for Peter Pan to the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children in London.
    Alison Lurie is the bestselling author of such novels as The War Between the Tates and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Foreign Affairs. She has also written extensively about children's literature, including Don't Tell the Grownups, Boys and Girls Forever, and, as co-editor, the Garland Library of Children's Classics. She is F. J. Whiton Professor of American Literature Emeritas at Cornell University.

    James Matthew Barrie was born in 1860 and died in 1937.

    Captivating, Raw and a Bittersweet ending!  Aug 27, 2007
    I have just finished this (the original) version of "Peter Pan" and absolutely loved every moment of it. Though being a hopeless romantic as I am, a piece of me wished for Peter and Wendy to stay together. I guess that would have ruined the point Barrie is trying to make "where everyone must grow up". The original book is with out a doubt the best of any version of the story though the movies touch on different parts of this book they do not fully capture all that this story brings. I believe that the most recent live action Peter Pan has come the closest yet now I wish they would remake it once more straight from the book. I believe that it would be amazing to see the original emotions and adventures come to life. I cannot say enough great things about it. definitely recommended and especially before any of the movies, especially the Disney version.
