Andrew Birkin ï 5 Free download Free read ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ï Andrew Birkin Download  JM Barrie and the Lost Boys The real story behind Peter Pan 105 R when they were orphaned Andrew Birkin draws extensively on a vast range of material by and about Barrie including notebooks memoirs and hours of recorded interviews with the family and their circle to describe Barrie’s life and the wonderful world he created for the boysOriginally published in 1979 this enchanting and richl. I am not a big fan of Peter Pan but I have liked some of Barrie s other plays particularly Dear Brutus However I knew very little about Barrie s life although there was a vague sense of him using a real little boy as a pattern for Peter Never had the slightest interest in seeing Finding Neverland and nothing in this book made me change my mindBirkin is sly which is an odd description for a biographer s style He provides a cursory look at Barrie s career and life beyond his interactions with the Llewelyn Davies family but the book is about exactly what the title implies JM Barrie s relationship with the children Birkin is deadly It becomes increasingly uncomfortable to read about Barrie s intrusion into their lives Nico the youngest seems to have been the only one to come through the experience of Barrie s attention with minimal damage but even there Birkin implies that Nico the only brother still alive when he wrote this book was hiding something What was it Birkin devotes sufficient attention to the inventiveness of Peter Pan to establish the work as a masterpiece But he also leaves no doubt that Peter Pan came at the cost of an emotionally suffocating relationship for the children that began when they were too young to realize what was happening Birkin never accuses Barrie of physical molestation but makes it painfully obvious that his interest in the boys was not parental It was romantic Many Victorian same sex relationships were romantic without ever being sexual and the language might be hyperbolic But those romantic friendships were between adults not an emotionally needy man and a series of very young children There is no other way to put it but bluntly Barrie stalked the boys especially George and Michael And Birkin sprinkles pictures of the pre adolescent boys bathing nude throughout the book with the notation always that the photograph was taken by Barrie himself Barrie is depicted as drawn to their mother Given that Birkin presents Barrie as a cold fish with women throughout his life his marriage was a mistake from the start this is improbable What drew him to Mrs Llewelyn Davies was her motherhood George was born by the time Barrie met the family but he was there for the infancies of John Henry Michael and Nico He was kind to the boys father but as a means to an end and that end was access to the man s childrenBirkin tries to paint Barrie as a boy who never grew up That doesn t ring true either It was the boys who were never supposed to grow up Barrie wanted them to remain under his sway Honestly the sheer passive aggressiveness of the man when the children began to outgrow his stories is astounding His letters of complaint give the impression that adolescence is a stage solely designed to wound JM Barrie There are hints that George recognized Barrie was a drip before he was killed in World War I His surviving letters are notably less effusive than Barrie s John and Nico may not have been imaginative enough to fully engage Barrie s intensity But Michael was a sensitive brilliant young man by the time he died There were rumors at the time that his drowning was actually suicide Henry who edited the family history that provided Birkin with a wealth of material killed himself by leaping under a train in the 1950s By that time his view of Barrie was jaundiced and he took the precaution of burning as much of the MichaelBarrie correspondence as he couldWhere were the parents The father died first from cancer Birkin filters the deathbed mainly though the adult Henry who thinks his father had to resent Barrie s emotional attachment to children who were taught to call him Uncle Jim despite the lack of blood relationship Barrie was immensely wealthy and could provide lovely vacations and financial assistance to his large adopted family Henry and let s be honest Birkin think that the man must have resented the largesse Birkin also makes less than veiled allusions to the idea that the mother was motivated by material comfort both for herself and her boys after her early death And to his credit Barrie didn t stint any of the five until his death in 1937But they also paid a cost And I m sorry but whether he consciously intended this to be the takeaway from this reader Birkin left me a little horrified about the circumstances of the real story behind Peter Pan
