Despite just having met her, Dorothy recognizes this kindness and takes her advice to travel to Emerald City, the Land of Oz. Oz, the powerful wizard is said to grant people's wishes; Dorothy’s being getting back to Kansas to her Auntie Em and Uncle. On her way to the powerful Wizard of Oz, she runs into three unique characters: the
We can see this in several objects: the smoke whenever she disappears, her sand clock counting down to Dorothy's death, the decoration in her chamber, the red details in her broomstick, the costumes of her servants, including the flying monkeys with red details in their apparel, the potion she develops for the "sleeping" poppy field (which is red again), her glass ball changing from green to red colours. The colour red is always present around her, maintaining the balance between green (her skin) and red, which needs to be maintained throughout the film. STILLS And most importantly also in red, the ruby slippers, which will link her to
Her name has become well-known throughout the years and has become the symbol of feminism. Creating a female protagonist inspires young females to express themselves as well highlight the power of women. Dorothy is introduced as a 6-year-old girl taken away by a tornado from her aunt and uncle. The reader follows her journey as she faces obstacles along the way to return to her home. Dorothy being a vulnerable six years old girl, becomes one of the most powerful being in the land of Oz.
Throughout Dorothy’s journey she learns the value of persistence, much like Dante learns through traveling in the depths of Dis. Throughout each literary work, the idea of surrounding oneself with good company (also known as a good leader) and never giving up is presented many times. Though the journey is challenging, having good company and not giving up will make any journey much more bearable. Both Dorthy from The Wizard of Oz and Dante from Dante’s Inferno both are at the stake of following or not following their rightful path.
Popular fantasy stories for children started to be published such as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) written by Lewis Carroll; Peter Pan and Wendy (1904) by J.M. Barrie; The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900) by L. Frank Baum or The Wind in the Willows (1908) by Kenneth Grahame, among many others. This period can be considered as the Golden Age of Children Literature. Some of these stories within the Golden Age of Children Literature have something in common: a closure of the story with a return to reality. Sarah Gilead divides these into three different categories: 1st category, The Return as Bildung -German noun that means “Education” or “Formation”-: “The return completes a history of psychic growth and interprets the fantasy narrative as a salutary exposure of forbidden wishes and emotions.
The wicked witch of the west wants her sister’s ruby slippers, which apparently have magical powers. However, Glinda has magically put the shoes on Dorothy’s feet. The wicked witch of the west vows to get Dorothy and regain her sister’s shoes, “I’ll get you my pretty and your little dog too” ("Quotes from "The Wizard of Oz", 2018) Besides her vow to the shoes, very little is known about the motivations of the Wicked Witch of the West. Many other mediums in literature and movies have attempted to explain her intentions, including occasionally making her an antihero.
It’s a scene engraved into the western world’s collective memory: a pigtailed girl in red slippers, skipping along a yellow brick road with a scarecrow, a tin man, and a lion. This image, from the book “The Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum and the 1939 film of the same name, represents the epic of the modern age. Whereas in ancient times, we had Gilgamesh or King Arthur as our gallant hero, now we have a little girl from a farm in Kansas. At first glance, this simple story of a young girl lost in a magic land could not compete with the great tales of old. However, this epic shares more than a few similarities with this seemingly childish
In Discworld, a world saturated and glued together with magic (Wyrd Sisters 10), shapeshifting is a common practice amongst magic practitioners. The witches in Witches Abroad, unlike the shapeshifting Granny Weatherwax in Equal Rites, shapeshift anyone but themselves for various reasons. Some shapeshift others for the sake of stories. Lilith Weatherwax, who rules Genua with the power of stories, changes the shape of the minds of animals such as wolves, pigs, and bears into human minds to make them the characters of children’s fairy tales. Some shapeshift others out of necessity.
Introduction Fairy Tales are stories that have generally been adopted today for children. They can be seen as an escape from our ordinary world into a world of fantasy and adventure.

The five aspects of a quest include: (a) a quester, (b) a place to go, (c) a stated reason to go there, (d) challenges and trials en route, and (e) a real reason to go there.

In the movie the Wizard of Oz, based on the book written by L. Frank Baum, one of Dorothy’s companions was the Scarecrow. The Scarecrow wanted to go to Emerald City because he described himself as “brainless” because his head was filled with straw. Little did he know, all along he had the potential to be a complex thinker, he just didn’t realize exactly how intelligent he was. There were three scenes that show how the Scarecrow already have the smarts he greatly desires.
