Compare and contrast the idea of fairyland in Peter Pan and in William Allingham’s poem The Fairies.

Tinkerbell is spiteful, mischievous and just plain nasty at times

Far away

Need to fly to get there

Need fairy dust

Pan can fly also Darling children

Colourful place with lots of greenery and lakes and mountains

No child grows up

Peter pan ran away from home and doesnt want to grow up

Idea of Fairyland in 'The Fairies'

Could be close by in our own world

Literally feels like it could be in a wood/forest near you

Scarey, barren landscape craggy hillsides, black lake, thorn trees

Quite a sinister, dark landscape (quite unlike Neverland)

Organised troops of "little men", all dressed same, implying organised army?

Sound more like Leprechauns than fairies

Bad things happen, Bridget kidnapped, died of sorrow

Different time scale to our world? 7 years only but all Bridget's friends gone

Feels Irish/Scottish (Celtic link)

Appears to be linked into Irish folklore maybe
