Our Landlady

Our Landlady

Author: L. Frank Baum Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/05/1999

It is widely known that L. Frank Baum spent several years in South Dakota before moving to Chicago, where he wrote the Oz books that made him famous...Koupal carefully lays out the complexities and ambiguities of Baum's thinking by providing us with the full texts of Baum's columns published weekly in the Aberdeen Saturday Pioneer between January 189 and February 1891, and by adding her own commentary and a glossary to place these writings in context. Entitled Our Landlady , the column described in a generally humorous vein the conversations and activities of four fictional characters - the landlady and three of her regular boarders - and a wide variety of prominent local residents of Aberdeen' - Great Plains Quarterly . 'Readers will be grateful to Koupal for this amusing and edifying supplement to our understanding of one of the giants of American popular culture' - Western Historical Quarterly .'Baum's humor is of the biting kind...readers of Our Landlady will find the beginnings of Baum's wonderful world of humor as well as an informative look at life in a prairie state' - South Dakota History . 'Koupal is an admirable editor. It's hard to see how the work could be improved' - The Baum Bugle . Nancy Tystad Koupal is a native of Mitchell, South Dakota, and serves as director of the Research and Publishing Program at the South Dakota State Historical Society.

The Wonderful World of Oz The Wizard of Oz, The Emerald City of Oz, Glinda of Oz

Author: L. Frank Baum, Jack Zipes Illustrator: W. W. Denslow Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/08/1998

This fully annotated volume collects three of Baum's fourteen Oz novels in which he developed his utopian vision and which garnered an immense and loyal following. The Wizard of Oz (1900) introduces Dorothy, who arrives from Kansas and meets the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, the Cowardly Lion, and a host of other characters. The Emerald City of Oz (1910) finds Dorothy, Aunt Em, and Uncle Henry coming to Oz just as the wicked Nome King is plotting to conquer its people. In Baum's final novel, Glinda of Oz (1920), Dorothy and Princess Ozma try to prevent a battle between the Skeezers and the Flatheads. Tapping into a deeply rooted desire in himself and his loyal readers to live in a peaceful country which values the sharing of talents and gifts, Baum's imaginative creation, like all great utopian literature, holds out the possibility for change. Also included is a selection of the original illustrations by W. W. Denslow and John R. Neill.
