About the Book

J. M. Barrie's fantasy drama Dear Brutus from 1917 depicts the characters' transition through alternate universes and eventual return to the real world. The phrase "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves" is taken from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and is referenced in the title. Between 17 October 1917 and 24 August 1918, the drama was presented at Wyndham's Theatre in the West End for 363 performances. The play's central question is whether people might benefit from living their lives over again and making new decisions. The characters are unhappy spouses who all believe their lives have gone in the wrong direction. The group is escorted to the residence of an elderly man with the Shakespearean name Lob, who is referred to as "all that is left of Merry England." The philanderer is found trying a new conquest, much to the amusement of his wife and his mistress; an elderly man who had yearned for a second youth proposes again to his faithful spouse; the artist and his wife are reconciled; and the dream child of Act 2 has almost become real to both of them and lives on in their hearts.

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.
