As well as being the author of the greatest of all children's plays, Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie also wrote sophisticated social comedy and political satire. The Admirable Crichton and What Every Woman Knows are shrewd and entertaining contributions to the politics of class and gender, while Mary Rose is one of the best ghost stories written for the stage. For this edition, the texts of these plays have been newly edited and are supplemented with an in-depth introduction and detailed annotations.

Peter Hollindale is Senior Lecturer in English and Educational Studies at the University of York. He edited Peter Pan is Kensington Gardens and Peter and Wendy in World's Classics. This is the novel rather than the play of Peter Pan.Review:
"Oxford Press does readers a great favor in reviving four of Barries best plays. Crichton and Peter Pan both made the most of being stranded on an island. Hollondale's introduction and notes add to the pleasure."--Illinois Central College
