Description
Barrie later altered Sylvia's will after her death so that he could become the boys legal guardian, while pushing several members of the family to nervous breakdown and suicide. Barrie's compulsion to dominate was so apparent to those around him that D. H. Lawrence once wrote: J. M Barrie has a fatal touch for those he loves. They die.
