About the Book

This is Barrie's commencement address to the class of 1922 at St. Andrews University. He urges the students to not give up on the dreams that make them happy and to not be afraid to stand up to the wrongdoings of their "betters." But he also cautions them—as well as the reader—that they will one day also be held accountable for their actions. Originally released in 1922, the book Courage was a transcription of a commencement speech delivered by Barrie on May 3, 1922, at ST. Andrews University. Naturally, the subject of the lecture was bravery. A speech about courage and what young people should strive for in life. Written for the St. Andrews class of 1922, which graduated in England. This play might go down in history as the beginning of your proposed campaign's propaganda. The League of Nations is a wonderful idea, but since we will be in charge of it, it cannot save you.

About Author

J. M. Barrie

Scottish author Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet, is most known for creating Peter Pan. He was also a playwright. He was raised and educated in Scotland before relocating to London, where he penned a number of well-received books and plays. There, he met the Llewelyn Davies brothers, who later served as the inspiration for his works Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a 1904 West End "fairy play," about an ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland. The story of a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens was first included in Barrie's 1902 adult novel The Little White Bird. Despite his ongoing success as a writer, Peter Pan eclipsed all of his earlier works and is credited with making the name Wendy well-known. After the deaths of the Davies boys' parents, Barrie adopted them clandestinely. George V created Barrie a baronet on June 14, 1913, and in the New Year's Honours of 1922, he was inducted into the Order of Merit.
