This fully footnoted scholarly edition of *Peter Pan* provides a collection of texts that traces the various incarnations of J.M. Barrie’s popular story, including the never-before published three-act play, Peter Pan, or the Boy who Wouldn’t Grow Up (1904), its additional scene “An After-Thought” (1908), and Barrie’s full-length novel, Peter and Wendy (1911). In addition to such related tales as Barrie’s Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens (1906) and his short story, “Captain Hook at Eton” (1927), this book includes early reviews of the play and the novels. Its meticulously researched Introduction outlines the story’s creative contexts, discusses its history and development on stage and in print, and explores its critical and cultural significance.
