J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
This is one of the most chilling parts of the story for me. those four words:
Peter thins them out
It makes me wonder how, especially when Peter himself has no qualms about killing people.
Also interesting is the idea that the boys do grow up. Though it also appears that there is some stopping point. The pirates die if they’re killed, but don’t seem to get older. The Indian tribe on the island seem to have families, although it’s not really stated whether they grow up or not. Peter is the only one who never grows older at all.
While Neverland might provide eternal youth (of varying degrees) — you can still die. And it appears as though the Lost Boys are more prone to getting killed than anyone else. Not just because they live dangerously, but because their “captain” is as like to kill them as anything else on the island.
Not long after this passage, however, we witness Hook killing one of his own pirates:
Let us now kill a pirate, to show Hook’s method. Skylights will do. As they pass, Skylights lurches clumsily against him, ruffling his lace collar; the hook shoots forth, there is a tearing sound and one screech, then the body is kicked aside, and the pirates pass on. He has not even taken the cigars from his mouth.
Such is the terrible man against whom Peter Pan is pitted. Which will win?
But Pan, who is a youth, is the hero even though he can be as cold-blooded as Hook. And Hook, is cast as the villain, because he’s an adult. Though, age aside, there’s little difference between the two.
