Something about pirates has intrigued people for generations. The stories of men who go off to sea in search of buried treasure with parrots on their shoulders, courageously living outside of the law have been passed down in children’s storybooks, movies, and more.
There is a great deal of speculation about why pirates are so appealing to the imagination of society. Many believe a great deal of the allure comes from the defiance of the societal norms and resisting the restrictions of their modern bureaucracy. The rebellion created a feeling of mystery in the imaginations of the storytellers.
There have been a few major names that have been very influential in creating the modern perception of the pirate. Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson greatly popularized the stereotypical mannerisms of the modern perception of pirates. The original novel, Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, also contributed a great deal towards popularizing certain aspects of pirate life, such as the idea of ‘walking the plank’. The Pirates of Penzance, an operetta, is also believed to be inspired by aspects of the famous character Jack Sparrow.
