Peter Pan Meta
I thought I was going insane, but I have cross-checked and it's true.|
The newer edition of Peter Pan, the one with the blue cover (that seems to have been released for the sole purpose of promoting the sequal), is different from the edition I was given for my birthday as a little girl. (I don't have them both with me, so I can't give you the edition numbers, unfortunatly.)
It started out as an argument between a friend and myself over Captain Hook's name. My original version refers to him a James cook, but states that he writes his name as Jas. Hook. So whenever I'm talking about my take on the character, he is James, when I'm talking about his opinions of himself and his world view, I refer to him as Jas.
Well, it seems that the new book uses either name all throughout the novel. I am so used to reading it as James that my brain automatically translated it when I read the newer version. My friend has only ever read the New edition and thought that his name was Jas.
Did anyone else notice any other discrepancies?
