WEFOUNDPeter Pan (Great Illustrated Classics)


Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet , OM ( / ˈ b æ r i / ; 9 May 1860 – 19 June 1937) was a Scottish novelist and playwright, best remembered today as the creator of Peter Pan . He was born and educated in Scotland but 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 (included in The Little White Bird ), then to write Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up , a "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 . [1] Barrie unofficially adopted the Davies boys following the deaths of their parents. Barrie was made a baronet by George V on 14 June 1913, [2] and a member of the Order of Merit in the 1922 New Year Honours . [3] 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.

Barrie knew that he wished to follow a career as an author. However, his family attempted to persuade him to choose a profession such as the ministry. With advice from Alexander, he was able to work out a compromise: he would attend a university, but would study literature. [10] Barrie enrolled at the University of Edinburgh where he wrote drama reviews for the Edinburgh Evening Courant . He graduated and obtained an M.A. on 21 April 1882. [10]

The Walt Disney Corporation pulled out of a new £60 million film version of Peter Pan after refusing to give a share of its profits to Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital in London.

The Hollywood studio became embroiled in a row with its fellow producers when it rejected a deal that would have given the hospital a share of the royalties from lucrative merchandising deals linked to the film.

At the height of the dispute with two other studios the company announced that it was withdrawing its £20 million investment from the project.
