General Jinjur by hwilki65 General Jinjur by hwilki65

“I am General Jinjur,” was the brief reply.

“Oh!” said the boy surprised. “What sort of a General?”

“I command the Army of Revolt in this war,” answered the General, with unnecessary sharpness.

Honestly I might love The Marvelous Land of Oz even more than The Wizard of Oz thanks to General Jinjur’s all-female army and the Tip/Ozma trans-coded subplots. L. Frank Baum was a visionary for sure!

I totally agree, I really loved how The Marvelous Land of Oz fleshed out Oz with Ozma and the history of Pastoria and the Wizard. And Ginger's army was quite progressive for its time.

Thank you! I really love Baum's history for Oz (it's a pity so few adaptations actually stick to it... I'm looking at you, Wicked and Oz the Great and Powerful...) and Baum's books were quite progressive for the time when they were written. I feel like that's why they've stood the test of time in some ways, because they're relevant even in today thanks to the feminist aspects of them.
