Transcript of The Odyssey

The Wizard of Oz

Epic Hero
Dorothy is helped by Glenda the Good Witch and
threatened by the Wicked Witch of the West. She is lovely, loyal, and innocent, and feminine.
After eventually returning home from Oz, Dorothy became wiser and grateful for her home and family.

Epic Plot
The journey from Oz back to Kansas is full of excitement and danger. Strange friends, like the Lion, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Man accompany Dorothy. Glenda the Good Witch and the Wicked Witch of the West help and hinder Dorothy as she survives each perilous adventure.

Epic Setting
The "Wizard of Oz" is set in both Kansas and Oz. Kansas is ordinary and filmed in black and white, while Oz is colorful and magical.

The Wizard of Oz has several epic archetypes:
the wicked temptress (the Wicked Witch), a treasure (the ruby slippers), loyal servants (Toto and Dorothy's friends), and the epic heroine (Dorothy).

Epic Theme
The epic theme of "The Wizard of Oz" is a homecoming. Dorothy learns that you don't have to look past your own backyard to find the treasures that home and family hold for you.
