Example text

Mrs. Darling first heard of Peter when she was tidying up her children舗s minds. It is the nightly custom of every good mother after her children are asleep to rummage in their minds and put things straight for next morning, repacking into their proper places the many articles that have wandered during the day. If you could keep awake (but of course you can舗t) you would see your own mother doing this, and you would find it very interesting to watch her. It is quite like tidying up drawers. You would see her on her knees, I expect, lingering humorously over some of your contents, wondering where on earth you had picked this thing up, making discoveries sweet and not so sweet, pressing this to her cheek as if it were as nice as a kitten, and hurriedly stowing that out of sight.

BARRIE AND PETER PAN 1860 James Matthew Barrie is born on May 9 in Kirriemuir, Scotland. The third son of seven surviving children, James shares two rooms with his entire family. The cottage also houses the handlooming tools with which his father, David, earns a living. The countryside surrounding Kirriemuir features breathtaking glens and stark mountains, and lush vegetation, lochs, and castles abound; the setting will influence Barrie舗s later writings. 1865 Lewis CarroUs Alice舗s Adventures in Wonderland is published.

On the island the butler (Crichton) becomes the group舗s leader, and Lady Mary, the aristocratic daughter of his employer, falls passionately in love with him. Two years later, she is about to marry him舒and then the marooned group is discovered. In act 4, Lady Mary loses all interest in Crichton when the power relations reverse a second time. While the play is a comedy, it is also poignant, for the natural and truthful love that the characters feel on the island proves impossible to sustain in real life.
