Quiz of Dan Barrett

As stated by the creators of the song, �Puff the Magic Dragon� symbolized a young boy�s fall towards adulthood through the loss of imagination. Throughout this entire song, Puff stood for imagination, while Jackie Paper signified the boy who was changing. Early quotes showing that �Together they would travel/On a boat with billowed sail/Jackie kept a lookout perched On Puff's gigantic tail,� indicated that Jackie was using his imagination with help from Puff. However, the theme of the story changes when the pain of adulthood arrives and prevents Jackie from entering the land of Honah Lee.

The quote “Painted wings and giant rings/Make way for other toys,” showed that adolescent imagination would make way for the troubles of adulthood. Towards the end of the poem, the quote, “Without his life-long friend/ Puff could not be brave/ So Puff that mighty dragon/Sadly slipped into his cave” showed that since Jackie crossed into maturity, the need for a childhood imagination became superfluous. As a result, Puff decided to go back into his cave. With Puff out of the picture, Jackie Paper’s character grew up to tackle adulthood without his imagination.
