A nice long article that summarizes many things rather concisely. And some pretty pictures.
J.M Barrie and Peter Pan by Terri Windling from Journal of Mythic Arts.

I don't know what this is exactly, and where to catch it. Perhaps someone else can understand.

I have an audition coming up for the play "A Christmas Carol" and I have to do a monologue. The play is for a Children's Theatre, so I'm guessing I should do a children's theatre type monologue. I was thinking along the lines of a monologue from PETER PAN by the character of Peter Pan. If anybody has any monologues or know's any monologues that PETER PAN does from the movie, play or even the book, it would be a big help!!!

Hey there :D I'm new to this community, and have been gobbling up all the articles and analysis I find here. A while back fourish posted an article to the Puer Aeternus archetype and said that if people were interested, she/he'd ramble a bit. I just wanted to drop a post to say that I, for one, would be very interested in what you have to say about these psychological workings in relation to the characters of the book (or movie, or whatever version you prefer) if she/he would still be interested in talking about :D

'Lo all. I'm very pleased to see this community exists. Hey there, hi, hallo.

I wouldn't say I'm so much "into" Peter Pan itself/himself as I am into the greater archetype he springs from, the Puer Aeternus as the Jungians call him. Peter himself is an oft-cited example of the archetype, but he is by no means the only example. How this archetype relates to women (I would be very surprised if most of the members of this community weren't female) is especially interesting to me, because I'm a student of depth psychology with a particular interest in the animus (i.e., Jung's concept of the "inner masculine" in every woman).

I'd like to go on about this a bit, but I don't know how psychologically minded the group is so...perhaps peruse the article, get back to me on this one, then maybe I'll ramble. :}

Hullo! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who is into pontificating over Barrie's "terrible masterpiece", so I had to join and add my two cents. I have to recomend Andrew Birkin's fine biography, J.M. Barrie and the Lost Boys, and try to hunt down the Little White Bird, which has the rough history of Peter before he went to the Neverland. Um... That's it for now.

There's a movie coming out called "Neverland" with Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet about Barrie writing the play. It should be interesting.

I am extremely interested in the character of Tiger Lily. She seems to be a female version of Peter Pan.

Yet another article. I'm just so exciting.

This is an excerpt from an excellent book by R.D.S.Jack about Barrie and Pan and lots of other goodness.

From japanpeterpan's journal (hope she doesn't mind): Confronting Peter Pan's "Awfully Big Adventure"</i>

Particularly like the last couple of sentances on the choice to deliberately retain your innocence being a tragedy.
