- “Associated with the central figures of Nonnus’ and Barrie’s works, Dionysus and Peter Pan, are such themes of infantile psychology as the omnipotent child warrior, the narcissistic, self-preoccupied exploiter of others, and gender ambiguity. Common to the works as a whole are similarly archaic features and emotions such as the spontaneous generation of life, fantasies of flight, ambivalence towards the mother, denial of or ignorance of sex, and a craving for immortality. These features, together with urethral eroticism, which often manifests as bedwetting, and a preoccupation with fire and water comprise the syndrome known as Icarianism, named after Icarus, the high-flying son of Daedalus. Icarianism can operate at different levels, in a primitive, egocentric, child-like way, through to a sublimated, spiritual and creative display that inspires and uplifts others.”
