Half an Hour : An Aspect of J. M. Barrie's View of Womankind
The object of this study is to show that J. M. Barrie just once presented his heroine unfavourably in his plays, and to check the background of this exception. First, Barrie's career as playwright is outlined, and his general attitude towards female characters is discussed. Next, the play in question, Half an Hour is introduced and the detestableness of its heroineis pointed out. Finally, the study finds out that the play was written soon after Barrie's divorce from his wife, and comes up to the conclusion that the disillusion in real life badly affected Barrie in his literary attitude towards women.
