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.

    • Bibliographic details: Una villa sul mare, completamente isolata, in un angolo di Liguria ancora selvaggio. Unico accesso, una galleria ferroviaria abbandonata. Leonardo ha dieci anni e vive solo con il padre. Soffre di una leggera forma di dislessia, è timido, insicuro, avviluppato nelle proprie fantasie, tra eroi, pirati e isole inesistenti. Una sera, uscito dalla vasca, trova il padre legato, in balia di uno sconosciuto - un cattivo, un orco - che lo minaccia con un coltello. Leonardo deve affrontarlo da solo. Il bambino e l'adulto si osservano, si studiano e tra i due sembra nascere una strana complicità. Ma ... Read more
