The Annotated Peter Pan (The Centennial Edition) (The Annotated Books)

By J. M. Barrie, Maria Tatar

"Peter Pan is a smart and refining and uplifting benefaction to this sordid and money-mad age."―Mark Twain

100 years after J. M. Barrie released the unconventional Peter and Wendy, Maria Tatar revisits a narrative that, like Alice in Wonderland, bridges the generations, animating either adults and kids with its kinetic power. The adventures of the Darling young ones with Peter Pan and Tinkerbell in Neverland are the seminal story of break out and delusion. encouraged by way of Barrie's real-life adventures with the 5 Llewelyn Davies boys he followed, the tale of Peter Pan has a deep and arguable heritage of its personal that comes alive in Tatar's new version. This brilliantly designed volume―with interval pictures, full-color pictures through iconic illustrators, remark on level and monitor models, and an array of supplementary fabric, together with Barrie's screenplay for a silent film―will draw readers into worlds of incandescent good looks, flooding them with the radiance of early life ask yourself and the poignancy of what we lose after we develop up. one hundred twenty five black-and-white and one hundred twenty five four-color illustrations
