    Good luck. According to Baum himself, when he was asked whether his stories had hidden meanings, he always replied that they were written to please children and generate an income for his family. Baum’s avowed intentions with the Oz books, and other fairy tales, was to tell such tales as the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen told, bringing them up to date by making the characters not stereotypical dwarfs or genies, and by removing both the violence and the moral to which the violence was to point.If you have to find hidden meanings, Baum was in favor of Women’s Sufferage (General Jinjur’s Coup d’etat in ‘The Marvelous Land of Oz’), he was also anti-populist, and and did not support Bryan’s Silver Crusade of the 1890s.
