Sir James Matthew Barrie was a late nineteenth century a Scottish writer. He prolifically wrote in the genre of novel and drama. His key work is considered to be the stage-play Peter Pan .

Barrie worked at a number of newspapers as a journalist. He adapted his mother’s stories about the town Kirriemuir in his own series of stories which were published in St. James’s Gazette . The stories include, Auld Licht Idylls (1888) and A Window in Thrums (1890) that laid the groundwork for his first novel. After attaining success for Auld Lichts series, he self published his first novel Better Dead (1888). It failed to sell out, though his following works earned him success. His popular fiction works include, Sentimental Tommy (1896), A Window in Thrums (1889) and Tommy and Grizel (1900).

In the following years, Barrie directed his attention toward playwriting. He began writing for stage in 1890’s and his early works include a biography of Richard Savage that he co-wrote with H.B. Marriott Watson. Later, he produced a successful play Walker London (1892). It was a comedy that mocks and ridicules the institution of marriage. The irony is, two years after writing the play he got married himself to an actress, Mary Ansell. However, things did not pan out as he expected and they got divorced.

In 1980’s he happened to meet Llewelyn Davies brothers in London’s Kensington Gardens. The Davies brother served as a model for his legendary creation of Peter Pan. The character made its debut appearance in the book The Little White Bird (1902). Later he adapted the story into a play titled Peter Pan which garnered huge success after its first performance. The idea of a flying boy, stuck in his youth, in a magical Neverland world, fascinated the audience. Barrie penned several plays based on Peter Pan and adapted the play Peter and Wendy into a novel format.

Subsequent to receiving rave reviews for Peter Pan, he focused on plays for adult audience. Gradually, his plays resonated with dark themes and complex emotions. In 1910, he wrote The Twelve-Pound Look which explored the dynamics of an unhappy marriage. It was followed by another serious play Half an Hour (1913) about a woman’s unfaithfulness to her husband. One of his chief plays, Mary Rose (1920), illustrates the story of a boy visited by his mother’s ghost. He wrote his final play in 1936, entitled The Boy David , about the Biblical story of the young David and King Saul.

Sir James Matthew Barrie suffered from pneumonia in his last days which resulted in his death on June 19, 1937. He was buried at Kirriemuir in the same cemetery along with his parents and siblings.

When people write humorless books with dull, underdeveloped characters then cram into them insights and allusions to the detriment of pacing and flow I always assume they’re drawing on what they erroneously believe is the classic literary tradition, which might be why they never succeed. Case in point: J.M. Ledgard’s Submergence , a ridiculous novel that, unfortunately, I bought my dad for Christmas.

Well, it tried to change my perspective on life by pointing out that evolution didn’t work in years or decades, but rather millennia. It also proclaimed that, in the future, Jihadists would be laughed at, there would be illegal organizations (and cults) based around artificial organs, and religion would be reduced to only its “most practical points”. (no mention of what exactly those points are, mind you) You know, revolutionary stuff. Things I am now a better person for knowing. There was an interesting bit about the “genetic distinctiveness of mankind” breaking down, but it was never explained in detail, probably because we had to learn about Che Guevara’s love for Rugby.

The language itself isn’t what I would call consistently terrible, but it is extremely cluttered, obsessed with famous names and endless allusions. (a mountain that is different on one side is described as “Janus-faced”. Danny is described as “standing on the shoulders of giants”) Naturally these cute little references add nothing to the story. If you like great prose there’s not much to be found here, unless you like motifs, which the book has exactly one of. It’s ham-fisted and crowbarred in at every possible opportunity to the point where I had trouble understanding what it actually meant, but it’s there.

Submergence is a pointless, pretentious book that ultimately drowns (Am I a great writer yet?) in its own self-importance and your time would be better spent reading Moby Dick . Or anything by William Shakespeare. Or even George R.R. Martin. Hell, why bother restricting yourself to books? Go watch Death Note or read Junji Ito’s Uzumaki. Familiarize yourself with Billy Wilder’s filmography. Pull out Super Smash Bros Melee and learn how to wavedash. Gather a few friends together and play a game of touch football. Go do something you enjoy.

“A work of art? It has no invention; it has no order, system, sequence, or result; it has no lifelikeness, no thrill, no stir, no seeming of reality; its characters are confusedly drawn, and by their acts and words they prove that they are not the sort of people the author claims that they are; its humor is pathetic; its pathos is funny; its conversations are — oh! indescribable; its love-scenes odious; its English a crime against the language. Counting these out, what is left is Art. I think we must all admit that.” -Mark Twain
