About the Story

Oz Monologues, The

Influenced by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, and Lewis Carroll, children’s author L. Frank Baum (1856-1919) published his most famous work, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, in 1900. The novel’s description of Kansas is thought to be based on the landscape of Aberdeen, South Dakota, where Baum moved with his wife in 1888. A classic in children’s literature, the story has been translated into more than 40 languages and prompted Baum to write several Oz sequels. The story was first adapted for the stage in 1902 as a musical entitled “The Wizard of Oz.” The 1939 film adaptation starring Judy Garland has become a movie classic.
