Peter Pan and the Myth of Eternal Youth

04-peter-pan-logo

  • A free spirited, a young boy who can fly and never grows up, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood having adventures on the mystical island of Neverland as the leader of the Lost Boys, in a world with pirates, fairies, mermaids, native indian american and children that come from outside Neverland.
  • The novels had a never ending successful, giving to his author, J.M.Barrie, fame and fortune.
  • The character's name comes from two sources: Peter Llewelyn Davies, one of the five Llewelyn Davies boys who inspired the story, and Pan, a minor deity of Greek mythology who plays pipes to nymphs and is part human and part goat.
  • The god Pan represents Nature or Man's natural state in contrast to Civilisation and the effects of upbringing on human behaviour. Peter Pan is a free spirit, being too young to be burdened with the effects of education or to have an adult appreciation of moral responsibility.
