Peter Pan was born over a century ago. There is something doubly contradictory in this phrase that, although true, is also the reason why this book has been released. We are talking about the boy who will never grow up and the fact that he is celebrating his hundredth birthday should provoke some surprise. At the same time, he is such a powerful icon that it is also true that he seems to have been there, floating in our culture, reappearing in its images, since time immemorial a€“ much farther back than the early twentieth century. This book shows that, although he considered dying to be an awfully big adventure, Peter Pan is, on his one hundredth birthday, more alive than ever. And our prediction is that he will accompany our culture as long as it survives. Like all great myths, Peter will continue bursting through the window of our texts, leading us to other worlds so that when we least expect it, we will hear his cry emanate from a dark ocean. This book, in a sincere tribute, intends to be both a compilation and a precedent a€“ by inspiring a deeper look into its image, we hope to influence the life of this character so dear and yet so mysterious and seductive. Peter Pan ha cumplido un siglo de vida. Hay algo doblemente contradictorio en esta frase que, por lo demAis, es cierta y es el motivo por el cual este libro ha visto la luz. Estamos hablando del niApo que nunca crece y el hecho de que celebre su cumpleaApos nAomero cien puede provocarnos cierta extraApeza. Por otro lado, se trata de un icono tan poderoso que tambiAcn es verdad que parece haber estado ahAs, flotando en nuestra cultura, resurgiendo en sus imAigenes, desde tiempos inmemoriales mucho mAis lejanos que los albores del siglo XX. Este libro muestra que, a pesar de que considere que morir podrAsa resultar una aventura extraordinaria, Peter Pan estAi a sus cien aApos mAis vivo que nunca. Y el panorama pinta, en efecto, para una vida que acompaApe a nuestra cultura mientras Acsta sobreviva. Igual que sucede con todos los grandes mitos, Peter seguirAi irrumpiendo a travAcs de la ventana de nuestros textos, guiAindonos a otros mundos de tal manera que, cuando menos lo esperemos, escucharemos su grito emanar de un ocAcano oscuro. Este libro, en un sincero homenaje, pretende ser compilaciA³n y precedente y, mediante la provocaciA³n, mediante la motivaciA³n de la profundizaciA³n en su figura, incidir en la trayectoria de la vida de este personaje tan entraApable y a la vez tan misterioso y seductor.The first essay, a€œCreating the Deathless Boya€ by Ronald D.S.
