J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan In and Out of Time: A Children's Classic at 100 is a wonderful resource for anyone who wishes to look at Peter Pan in a critical fashion. I first discovered this book through the library when I was doing a project on Peter Pan, and after I absolutely could not delay returning the book any longer, I found myself constantly referring to my bibliography and missing the book. So I ordered it! While this is a wonderful look at Peter Pan, the essays in Peter Pan In and Out of Time refer far beyond just Peter Pan-- the time period and ideas referenced are valuable to understanding certain literary and historical concepts. I've referred to this book several times since purchase and in most of those instances I was looking for general information in the essays regarding adolescence, gender roles, and other ideas and issues that are touched upon. I highly recommend this book! ( )
