Hero's Journey in the Wizard of Oz
Transcript of Hero's Journey in the Wizard of Oz
"The Wizard of Oz"
By: Jenna McCall Departure: Call to Adventure: Dorothy runs away with Toto in fear that the angered neighbor, Ms. Gulch will take him from her. Refusal of Call When Professor Marvel shares what is happening with Auntie Em, Dorothy decides to return home to help. Crossing of the First Threshold Dorothy crosses the threshold when waking up in Munchkin land and realizing she is no longer in Kansas. Supernatural Aid The supernatural aid is something that acts as a guide to the hero, in this case the tornado and yellow brick road guide Dorothy. Meeting with the Goddess Dorothy's meeting with the Goddess is when she meets Glinda, the good witch of the north. Road of Trials The road of trials is a series of tests the hero goes through. One example of these tests, is the poppy field created to put the characters asleep and stop them from reaching emerald city. The wicked witch also tries to set the scarecrow and uses an evil apple tree to prevent them from reaching the city. Apotheosis While being locked in the wicked witch's castle, Dorothy has a change of heart and realizes she wants to return home. The Ultimate Boon The ultimate boon of the story occurs when Dorothy kills the wicked witch. The apotheosis gives Dorothy the courage to stand up to the witch and she then fulfills her goal and returns to the wizard with the witch's broom. Rescue from Without Dorothy's rescue from without is when Glinda tells her that she has been able to go home all along and that with the ruby slippers she can do so. Crossing of the Return Threshold When clicking her heels together and repeating "there's no place like home", Dorothy returns to her farm in Kansas. Master of the Two Worlds/Freedom to Live Dorothy experiences this when she returns home and realizes that is where she should be.
