“The Road” represent in this novel Sal’s journey to self-discovery. He advances from every experience that he encounters and defines a new piece of himself each time. As Sal stated “I realized that I had died and been reborn numberless times but just didn’t remember because the transitions from life to death and back are so ghostly easy, a magical action for naught, like falling asleep and waking up again a million times, the utter casualness and deep ignorance of it”. On “The Road” Sal is constantly experiencing life changing events that alter his perspective on life.
