From the Paper:

"This study will describe and analyze the theme of loneliness and its healing in Madonna Kolbenschlag's "Lost in the Land of Oz: Befriending Your Inner Orphan and Heading for Home". The study will argue that Kolbenschlag is correct in concluding that the loneliness we all experience is in effect an illusion created by the needs of the ego and the lessons we learn from a society which values independence over interdependence.

However, more importantly, the study will argue that Kolbenschlag commits a number of fallacies in her argument which are based on assumptions about women and men and society. Specifically, the author reveals a common bias among women writers today who see the problems of society and relationships as results of too much emphasis on masculine values and too little emphasis on feminine values."
