the other day when i was reading Peter Pan, (for the forth time ) i once again came across the paragraph that always stumped me with curiosity.
Hook was not his ture name. To reveal who he really was would even at this date set the country in a blaze;But as those who read between the lives must already have guessed, he head been at a famous public school; and its traditions still clung to him like garments, with which indeed they are largely concerned. Thus it was offensive to him even now to a board a ship in the same dress in which he grappled her; and he still adhered in his walk to the school's distinguished slouch. But above all he retained the passon for good form.
Who is he then? i have never been able to guess, i've reread some parts trying to read "between the lines" but have never succeded in guessing who he is. do you guys have a clue suggestions.
Who is James Hook!?
