"Peter Pan is a great and refining and uplifting benefaction to this sordid and money-mad age."—Mark Twain One hundred years after J. M. Barrie published the novel Peter and Wendy, Maria Tatar revisits a story that, like Alice in Wonderland, bridges the generations, animating both adults and children with its kinetic energy. The adventures of the Darling children with Peter Pan and Tinkerbell in Neverland are the seminal tale of escape and fantasy. Inspired by Barrie's real-life adventures with the five Llewelyn Davies boys he adopted, the story of Peter Pan has a deep and controversial history of its own that comes alive in Tatar's new edition. This brilliantly designed volume—with period photographs, full-color images by iconic illustrators, commentary on stage and screen versions, and an array of supplementary material, including Barrie's screenplay for a silent film—will draw readers into worlds of incandescent beauty, flooding them with the radiance of childhood wonder and the poignancy of what we lose when we grow up.

Thomas Ollive Mabbott had, for nearly forty years, planned and prepared for a comprehensive and authoritative collection of all of the writings of Edgar Allan Poe. Sadly, he lived only to see the volume of Poems make it into print. His widow, Maureen Cobb Mabbott, worked with several of TOM's assistants to complete volumes II and III, embracing the Tales and Sketches, an effort that occupied another decade of care and dedication. The material for subsequent volumes was not nearly as far along as it had been for the first three, meaning that even more effort would be needed to proceed with the edition. The responsibility fell to Burton R. Pollin, who had been personally selected by TOM. Harvard University Press declined to continue as the publisher. Instead, the publication was undertaken initially by Twayne, and then by Gordian Press (which also reprinted the first volume issued by Twayne, with a few minor corrections). Gordian produced single runs of each volume, comprising 500 copies each. The collected edition still remained incomplete when Pollin died in 2009. Because it was specifically designed to complement the Mabbott volumes on the poetry and works of fiction, there is no duplication of contents. Treating the combination of volumes as a single series, therefore, the set is often referred to collectively as the Mabbott/Pollin edition.

In the center of a very dark pinewood lives the two old Philosophers and their wives, the Grey Woman of Dun Gortin and the Thin Woman of Inis Magrath. One couple has a little boy named Seumas, the other a little girl named Brigid. Both are born on the same day. When the children are ten years old, one of the old Philosophers decides that he learned all that he was capable of learning. This conclusion depresses him so much that he decides to die. It is unfortunate, as he points out, that at the time he is in the best of health; however, if the time comes for him to die, then die he must. He takes off his shoes and spins around in the center of the room for fifteen minutes until he falls over dead. So grieved is the Grey Woman that she, too, kills herself, but since she is much tougher than her husband, she spins for forty-five minutes before she dies. The Thin Woman calmly buries the two bodies under the hearthstone. The people who live on the edge of the pinewood often come to see the Thin Woman's husband when they need advice. One day, Meehawl MacMurrachu comes to the Philosopher to learn who stole his wife's scrubbing board. The Philosopher, after much questioning, finally decides that the fairies took it. He advises Meehawl to go to a certain spot and steal the Crock of Gold that the Leprechauns of Gort na Gloca Mora buried there. For years, the Leprechauns were filling their Crock of Gold by clipping the edges of gold coins that they found in people's houses at night. They need the gold to ransom any of the little people caught by human beings.
