About the Author J.M. Barrie

(from Wikipedia) Sir James Matthew Barrie, first Baronet, OM (9 May 1860 - 19 June 1937), more commonly termed as J. M. Barrie, was a Scottish novelist and dramatist. Many individuals remember him for inventing the character of Peter Pan, whom he based on his neighbors, the Llewelyn Davies guys.

Born in Kirriemuir, Angus the second-youngest of ten kids, Barrie received his formal knowledge at The Glasgow Academy and the University of Edinburgh. He became a journalist in Nottingham then in London and became a novelist and subsequently a playwright.

Made a baronet in 1913, Barrie lies buried at Kirriemuir upcoming to his parents, sister, and elder brother David who had died in a skating accident before his 14th birthday.


JM Barrie's family were Scottish weavers; he was the ninth child of ten. When he was 6, his 13-year aged elder brother David, his mother's favourite, died in a skating accident found on the eve of his 14th birthday. His mom not recovered within the reduction, and ignored JM. As an example, when he would enter a space and see his mom, she would constantly state "David, is the fact that you? Could it be you?" and when she realized that it was JM, she would state "Oh, it's just you." His dad wouldn't communicate at all with all the kids. As a outcome of extreme neglect, and probable emotional misuse, JM suffered from psychogenic dwarfism. He stopped growing and not reached puberty. As an adult he didn't grow beyond 4'10".

Literary career

Barrie set his initially novels in Kirriemuir which he called "Thrums" (his dad worked as a weaver). Barrie usually wrote dialogue in Scots. He subsequently wrote for the theatre including Quality Street (1901), What Every Woman Knows (1908), and The Admirable Crichton (1902). His last play, The Boy David (1936), dramatized the Biblical story of King Saul and the young David. Like the character of Peter Pan the part of David was played by a female - Elisabeth Bergner. Barrie moreover authored a Savoy opera, Jane Annie (1893), with his friend Doyle.

His Thrums novels were hugely lucrative when they were published beginning with Auld Licht Idylls (1888). Next came A Window in Thrums (1889), and The Little Minister (1891). His 2 'Tommy' novels Sentimental Tommy and Tommy and Grizel came in 1896 and 1902 and dealt with themes more explicitly connected to what would become Peter Pan. The initially appearance of Pan came in The Little White Bird (1901).

In 1891 Barrie wrote Ibsen's Ghost, a parody of Henrik Ibsen's drama Ghosts which had simply been done for the first-time in England under the Independent Theatre Society led by J. T. Grein. Barrie's play was initially done on May 31 at Toole's Theatre in London. Barrie appeared to appreciate Ibsen's merits; even William Archer, the translator of Ibsen's functions into English, liked the humor of the play and suggested it to others.

Peter Pan had its initially stage performance on 27 December 1904. In 1924 he specified that the copyright of the play could go to Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. The present status of the copyright is complex. See Peter Pan Copyright Status.

Barrie, and a amount of alternative playwrights, was concerned in the 1909 and 1911 tries to challenge the censorship of the Lord Chamberlain over play creation in London.

When his elder brother died his mom blamed him to be the survivor and he lived the rest of his existence in an imaginary state refusing to deal with all the harsh fact of his lifetime leading to the development of the character Peter Pan
