The paper discusses the character Peter Pan in "Peter Pan, The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up" and in "The Little White Bird". The paper describes how both books bring Peter Pan and the magical Never Land to life in a world where children are the masters and they can be happy in a life without adults. The paper explains that Edwardian society was full of rules, social castes, and social constructs and the magical Never Land's freedom illustrates just how restrictive and rigid English society was at the time.
