Dorothy & Odysseus

  1. 1. DOROTHY AND ODYSSEUS<br />HEADING BACK TO KANSAS AND ITHACA: A ROUGH DRAFT<br />
  2. 2. Some Kind of Introduction<br />
  3. 3. The Focus or THESIS<br />During the introduction, or perhaps toward the end of it, is a good place to state the focus or THESIS for your whole slide show.<br />Both heroes go through a transformation in which they discover the meaning of home?<br />Both heroes needed to leave home in order to find it?<br />In order to value it?<br />
  4. 4. HOME <br />Images-----Ithaca and Kansas. Beautiful places? Not so much?<br />NEITHER DOROTHY NOR ODYSSEUS FULLY VALUE THEIR HOME AT THE BEGINNING.<br />
  5. 5. How do we know this?<br />Dorothy sings about some place over the rainbow. She longs to get away.----quote? <br />Odysseus, instead of heading straight home, lets himself gets sidetracked and heads to Ismarus for plundering.---quote?<br />
  6. 6. THE CALL to DOROTHY<br />WHO IS CALLING? WHY? BECAUSE HER LIFE IS LONELY & BLEAK? BECAUSE SHE NEEDS TO RESOLVE HER PROBLEM W/MS. GULCH?<br />
  7. 7. THE CALL TO ODYSSEUS<br />Menelaus summons him to go to War.<br />After the war, who or what is calling him on this next adventure? His sailors? His own foolishness? And where does Poseidon, God of the Sea, fit in? <br />Both journeys are affected at the beginning by storms. Both heroes are called by storms? The Greeks believed a god was behind storms. What do they believe in Kansas?<br />
  8. 8. THE MENTORS<br />Dorothy meets Glenda, the Good Witch. Glenda gives her the talisman of the ruby slippers. Dorothy doesn’t understand the power of the slippers. Not yet.<br />Odysseus is watched over by Athena. What does Athena give to Odysseus? How does she help him?<br />
  9. 9. About Those Mentors<br />Glenda vs. Athena: Who would you choose?<br />(could compare and contrast the qualities of the two mentors---)<br />Another good question that would fit in with the thesis here: how do these mentors help the heroes in their transformation? What do these mentors know about the journey? What do they know about home?<br />
  10. 10. THE INITIATION<br />I might compare two or three of the tests they go through. <br />Alternatively, I might just mention the tests—highlights—and go more deeply into the climax battle-----dorothy and the wicked witch---odysseus and who?---what is his final battle and why is it important? Might need a few slides to explore this<br />
  11. 11. The Return<br />Lots could be done to compare their returns<br />Who is waiting? Are they different when they return? What do they understand about their homes that they didn’t before? Were their journeys inward or outward? Both?<br />
  12. 12. What Happens After<br />A wrap-up slide or two in which I show or propose how my heroes are transformed----and how the homes they return to might be transformed as well<br />The end is a good time to come back around to the thesis and perhaps expand on it. <br />
