Peter Pan and the Myth of Eternal Youth


  • 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.

Prima edizione di questo interessante volume bargelliniano sul capolavoro di Collodi. Un capitolo riguarda "Pinocchio e Peter Pan". "Il libro di Pinocchio non è punto allegro. Non è neppure commovente. Né divertente, né commovente. Non si sa d'altronde perché i libri da ragazzo (e non soltanto quelli da ragazzo) debbano far ridere o far piangere. Secondo una tale teoria, Pinocchio sarebbe un libro mancato. Leggendolo credo che nessuno abbia mai riso, come nessuno credo che abbia mai pianto. Si resta a oc... Read more
