This paper is a review of four pieces of literature. The first is a selection from "Wind in the Willows," by Kenneth Grahame; the second is a poem, "Fax X" by Welsh/English poet Gwyneth Lewis; the third is a poem "The One Who Goes Away" by Sujata Bhatt; and the fourth is a selection from J.D. Salinger's "Franny and Zooey." The paper shows how all these pieces deal with journeys; some voluntary, some compelled.

From the Paper:

"A journey. Toad continually wants to go on a journey, and is always after a more intoxicating and exotic means of traveling: a rowing scull, a gypsy caravan, an expensive motorcar. He is vain and conceited; he flits from one misadventure to another with no real understanding of the problems he causes, and yet his friends remain fond of him. Of course, Toad is merely an imaginary and imaginative character, as are Rat, Mole, and Badger, anthropomorphized animals in Kenneth Grahame's children's story -- often relished equally by adults."
