  • Bone Identity

    to his transformation into Bone, until the moment Russ abandons him in the summer home in Keene, our main character can be closely tied to and eloquently examined in the light of a lost boy. He’s a follower adapting to survive, but has no say in his own adventures yet. There are many other comparisons to characters within Peter Pan that could be used in understanding Bone’s positioning throughout the novel. For example, a connection to Captain Hook can be made for much of Bone’s time in Jamaica, specifically on page 317 when he’s accompanying I-Man to the cave. He describes this cave as being “inside a gigantic human skull (Banks 317)”, a direct parallel to Skull Rock, the place Captain Hook takes a captured Tiger Lily in order to lure Peter Pan to his death. Just as Captain Hook thinks he’s going to find satisfaction by finally killing his nemesis in Skull Rock, Bone thinks he’s going to find personal satisfaction by “ascending in that irie glow to the heights of I-and-I where I’d finally come to know Jah (Banks 316).” Bone, like Captain Hook, has one expectation of how the trip will evolve his own sense of personal identity, but things don’t turn out as planned. It’s within this cave, and the visions Bone experiences there, that the reader sees the most dramatic changes in Bone’s sense of morality and racial identity. However, while moments similar to these are of great importance in considering the story of Peter and Wendy in comparison to Rule of the Bone, the most…
