Sobre El Autor

James Matthew Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan, was born on May 9, 1860, in Kirriemuir, Angus, Scotland. His idyllic boyhood was shattered by his brother's death when Barrie was six. His own grief and that of his mother influenced the rest of his life. Through his work, he sought to recapture the mostrar más carefree joy of his first six years. Barrie came to London as a freelance writer in 1885. His early fiction, Auld Licht Idylls (1888) and A Window in Thrums (1889), were inspired by his youth in Kirriemuir. After publishing a biography of his mother Margaret Ogilvy and the autobiographical novel Sentimental Tommy, about a boy living in a dream world (1896), he concentrated on writing plays. The Admirable Crichton (1902), the story of a butler who becomes king of a desert island, helped to establish Barrie's reputation as a playwright. Meanwhile, he began to relive his childhood by telling the first Peter Pan stories to the sons of his friend, Sylvia Llewellyn Davies. The play Peter Pan was first performed in 1904 and published as a novel seven years later. Its imaginative drama, featuring the eternal boy's triumph over the grownup Captain Hook, idealizes childhood and underscores adults' inability to regain it. These resonant themes made it a classic of world literature. Barrie's later work shows his increasingly cynical view of adulthood, particularly in Dear Brutus (1917). Often considered his finest play, it concerns nine men and women whose caprices destroy a miraculous opportunity to relive their lives. Barrie married the former Mary Ansell in 1894. They divorced in 1909, never having any children. Barrie died in London on June 19, 1937. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Biografía breve
Sir James Matthew Barrie, 9 May 1860 – 19 June 1937) was a Scottish novelist and playwright, best remembered as the creator of Peter Pan. He was born and educated in Scotland and then moved to London, where he wrote a number of successful novels and plays. There he met the Llewelyn Davies boys, who inspired him to write about a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens (first included in Barrie's 1902 adult novel The Little White Bird), then to write Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a 1904 "fairy play" about an ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland.

Although he continued to write successfully, Peter Pan overshadowed his other work, and is credited with popularising the name Wendy. Barrie unofficially adopted the Davies boys following the deaths of their parents. Barrie was made a baronet by George V on 14 June 1913, and a member of the Order of Merit in the 1922 New Year Honours. Before his death, he gave the rights to the Peter Pan works to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, which continues to benefit from them.



«Todos los niños, menos uno, crecen». Así comienza la historia de ese jovencito que se resiste con vehemencia a convertirse en adulto, ese atribulado y domesticado engranaje necesario para el sistema social. El País de Nunca Jamás es su hogar, su resistencia; allí es un pequeño caballero, valeroso guerrero espadachín. Alicia lo saluda desde el País de las Maravillas, seguro. Pinocho, desde «la eternidad pueril de la madera encantada», como dice Juan Villoro, tal vez lo entiende; Dorothy, desde la Tierra de Oz, lo admira, y hasta quizá sienta envidia, pues, a diferencia de Peter, algún día todos ellos crecerán. Pero solo ese niño conoce (y valora) el secreto de la infancia eterna.… (más)

In 1902, nine years before the publication of the classic novel Peter Pan and Wendy, Peter Pan made his first appearance in several chapters of another book by Sir James M. Barrie, called The Little White Bird; theses stories were later published as a separate book, Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. In this fragile victorian fantasy, Barrie gives us our first glimpse of the impish sprite who escaped through the nursery window and danced with fairies in London.

¡Qué engañado me tenían Walt Disney y la película "Hook"! Este libro no tiene casi nada que ver con esas dos versiones. Puedo decir que he conocido realmente a Peter Pan y es, dicho con cariño, un mal bicho.

Teniendo en cuenta que es una novela escrita en 1911 (no dejará de sorprendernos el papel de la mujer en ella) me ha parecido algo así como un encanto o bien un cuento encantador (puede que sea un expresión cursi, pero qué le vamos a hacer).

Creo que está hecha para serle leída a los niños. Lectura en voz alta, claro.

La edición de Juventud es un primor (se me ha pegado la cursilería). Se trata de un libro encuadernado en tela con sobrecubierta y grabados dorados, el lomo superior protegido del polvo por un entintado amarillo (tengo que ver si esa característica tiene un nombre), los cuadernillos están cosidos y el papel es de gran calidad, de los que no amarillean con el tiempo. Todas las páginas van orladas y los dibujos, tanto las ilustraciones en el texto como las láminas, son sugerentes. He estado viviendo en 1911 los ratos en que leía. Por último, la tipografía es la que debe ser, es decir, legible, ni grande ni pequeña, con el grosor ajustado.

Si alguien necesita regalar un libro que elija éste. Acertará sólo con verlo y si el destinatario lo lee, le quedará agradecido.

Lo compré porque las obras que dan origen a los mitos hay que leerlas, aunque generalmente el mito es más interesante que su origen. Este es uno de esos casos, aunque el libro se lea bien. Sin embargo, a no ser que uno se empeñe en leerlo en clave psicológica, lo que me parece exagerado teniendo en cuenta que se escribió en 1911, no se le puede considerar una obra grande. Como relato infantil, los niños no creo que lo entiendan hoy.
