    ENGLISH The Wonderful Wizard of Oz ITALIANO

    Dorothy is a young girl who lives with her aunts in a small farm in Kansas Due to a tornado, she is catapulted with her house in a freaky village

    Dorothy s journey, which I discovered at 38 thanks to my daughter and to the well established habit of reading something to her before going to bed, begins in this way The thing that impressed me most about this wonderful story is that the title The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is rather misleading Yes, because Oz is neither the protagonist of the novel nor the ultimate goal of Dorothy s journey Oz appears or less at half of the novel, and he remains in the story for no than 50 pages Surely, Dorothy and her cheerful company start the search for the wizard of Oz almost immediately However, the story that involves directly or indirectly Oz ends in an unexpected way, almost prematurely, and in my opinion this is a strenght of the story When Oz disappeared from the story, it was funny to see the confused face of my daughter saying

    Once upon a time there lived a Golden Age gay icon, who whiled away her pre waxing years sitting atop a split rail fence in some dour, nondescript American Midwest landscape Her dreams of a outrageously fierce existence in the big city wearing roller skates and one foot diameter afro wigs and dancing to Army of Lovers in between lines of blow were hemmed in on all sides by rusted farm equipment, NAPA Auto Parts Stores, and a lone, dejected Applebee s out on the turnpike Kansas didn t even have a meth lab yet Or a Sally Beauty Supply Her nascent fabulousness was imprisoned by voluminous swaths of gingham, satin ribbons, and fussy lace collars none of them, unfortunately, worn ironically, with a lollipop or a pacifier or Harajuku style at the behest of Aunt Em, a woman whose character is explained by the shocking fact that the better part of her non church wardrobe was purchased at Quality Farm Fleet I know Couldn t you just die This girl, as yet scarcely old enough to have a couple of cherries or a leaping dolphin tattooed near her cameltoe, was named Dorothy One day, like so many dreamy eyed girls, she donned her Skechers and her discount department store jeans and waited for a meteorological disaster to rescue her from her sad, glitterless rural life...

    Click here to watch a video review of this book on my channel, From Beginning to Bookend.Dorothy Gale and her little dog Toto are swept away by a tornado from Kansas all the way to the Land of Oz With a little help from the Witch of the North, Dorothy and Toto set off down a road paved with yellow bricks in search of the City of Emeralds and the Wizard of Oz, a man said to have the power to help Dorothy find her way back to Kansas The cyclone had set the house down, very gently for a cyclone in the midst of a country of marvelous beauty There were lovely patches of green sward all about, with stately trees bearing rich and luscious fruits Banks of gorgeous flowers were on every hand, and birds with rare and brilliant plumage sang and fluttered in the trees and bushes. Along the way, Dorothy makes some unusual new friends, each of which desire something from the Wizard of Oz Do you think Oz could give me courage asked the cowardly Lion Just as easily as he could give me brains, said the Scarecrow Or give me a heart, said the Tin Woodman Or send me back to Kansas, said Dorothy Then, if you don t mind, I ll go with you, said the Lion, for my life is simply unbearable without a bit of courage In the late eighteen hundreds, children s stories often featured familiar mythical creatures and were written with the express intent to delive...

    The Wizard of Oz as An Economic Parable A Short IntroductionThis might be common knowledge or it might not be Some economics textbooks claim this is a wonderfully esoteric nugget The story of Oz was an economic parable Take that, all you who said economics can t be fun.Redistributions of wealth caused by unexpected changes in the price level are often a source of political turmoil From 1880 to 1896 the price level in the United States fell 23 percent This deflation was good for Haves creditors primarily the bankers of the Northeast , but it was bad for Have Nots debtors primarily the farmers of the South and West The deflation was blamed almost exclusively on the now notorious Gold Standard and a proposed move towards Silver was instead the craved for alternative.The Silver issue dominated the presidential election of 1896 William McKinley, the Republican nominee, campaigned on a platform of preserving the gold standard William Jennings Bryan, the Democratic nominee, ranged boldly against Gold and for Silver In a famous speech, Bryan proclaim...

    The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a brief and magical adventure tale filled straightforward prose, predictable plot, and uninteresting protagonists with a penchant for morbidity, self mutilation, and decapitation while whimsically traipsing along in a bizarre land chock full of eldritch creatures Whirled by a cyclone, Dorothy, an innocent, harmless little girl, and Toto, her adorable dog, are whisked away in a peculiar land From there, they tag along with eccentric beings and eventually meet the stuffed Scarecrow who wished he had a brain except that his head is full of straws , the squeaky and rusty Tin Woodman who lost his heart literally , and the Cowardly Lion who s always terror stricken Hoping that each of their wishes would be granted, they travel to the Emerald City where the wonderful wizard, Oz the Great and Terrible, is enthroned The great wizard will only grant their heart s desires on the condition that they seek out and destroy the Wicked Witch of the West And so their quest begins My inner kiddo didn t quite approve of this one The magical elements were good, but not enthralling at all Was this written specifically for children I find this story highly disturbing and better suited for mature audiences please refer to my first paragraph A word of caution to parents guardians kindly read this first before giving it to your children as it might be a bit overwhelming and horrifying for sensitive, young readers Honestly, I prefer Dahl s and Carroll s ...

    To Oz To Oz The film version of The Wizard of Oz is such an important part of American history that I most likely had it memorized by the time I was eight years old Between the music, images changing from black and white to color, and the defeat of a wicked witch, the movie was simply magical Being a tomboy, however, my reading interests as a child were never inclined toward classic books such as Little Women and, of course, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Having my interest piqued by the yearly viewing of this movie at Thanksgiving, I decided to finally read this children s classic book for myself Lyman Frank Baum had been struggling in business and needed to be able to support his family of five children Life in the circus had failed, so he turned to writing Morally supported by his wife Maud, Baum turned to writing enduring children s classics like the ones he grew up reading Setting out to write a classic piece of children s literature, Baum started the saga of Dorothy of Kansas that later became the Wonderful Wizard of Oz When Baum died unexpect...
