Was Barrie a Genius?
It’s a good question. It’s one often asked about him – in his day, many considered he was – and it’s one he addressed himself (with subtle variation) at the beginning and end of his career.
Our forthcoming first volume of ANON has the original article from the St James’s Gazette, August 1887
while our new society edition of The Greenwood Hat and An Edinburgh Eleven has the later version. The changes are subtle (often just due to the passage of time/perspective) but interesting to compare.
But here we offer you (by a stroke of genius?) both articles, side by side so you can do your own comparative analysis. Download free PDF HERE.
We’d be interested on your thoughts, both on the article/s and on whether Barrie was (in your opinion) a Genius.
And hopefully this whets your appetite for our first Journal - to be published on May 9th: title PERSPECTIVES ON BARRIE.
