The Wonderful Wizard of Oz; Notes on Chapter 21

Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The

Chapter 21. The Lion Becomes the King of Beasts

Disclaimer: notes transcribed as is, no editing has been made so as to preserve my original feelings as I read the chapter.

It’s obvious by the title of the chapter that Lion will, very soon, also have a new home & domain to rule.

All these varied animals having a meeting, united by a common threat. A person wouldn’t normally see a fox amongst such jungle animals either, or a bear for that matter.
Lion calmly hushes the crowd of animals with merely his presence and finally there is a lion once more in the forest.

A giant spider, again shades of Tolkien, only this culprit brings the evil Shelob to mind.
Lion is wise to strike while the massive spider is asleep but some might say not very courageous.
Who cares though, the tyrant is dead and the forest animals have a new lord and all is well.
