Example text

But the models of behaviour – Peter’s or Nutkin’s siblings – are as water beside wine: ‘Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail, who were good little bunnies, went down the lane to gather blackberries. But Peter, who was very naughty, ran straight away to Mr McGregor’s garden …’ We find the same preference in the contemporary stories of E. Nesbit, where it is the high spirits and wild imaginations of the children that cause all the delight – though they are never quite disobedient or rude to their elders.

This responsiveness to the idea of home is very much an Edwardian phenomenon. We see it in novelists and poets from Forster to Rupert Brooke; and it is strongly present in the children’s fantasy of E. Nesbit, in Peter Pan, and in Kipling’s Puck of Pook’s Hill and Rewards and Fairies, where it relates to England itself. And this concept of home often has a divine or mystic sanction, the genus loci, from its wild woodland god Pan, an Edwardian favourite, to the English Puck. But to some animal spirits home is not enough.

Asking a magic carpet to bring back from its native land ‘“the most beautiful and delightful productions of it you can”’, brings one hundred and ninety-nine very hungry white Persian cats to the nursery. Travelling through time to Atlantis might suggest all the pleasures of exotic tourism, but it also means having to escape the tidal wave that finally engulfs the city. But, as in Beatrix Potter’s tales, all these difficulties add spice to the stories’ enjoyment, especially when everything turns out happily – or at least, safely.
