The novel On The Road written by Jack Kerouac is a book that can be read as a quest taken by Sal Paradise who sets out to test the American Dream by trying to pin down its promise of unlimited freedom by following the example of Dean Morairty. In the book ? the road? becomes a symbol of freedom or escape for Sal and his friends. The road symbolizes an escape route from the dictates of society: helping them break away from responsibility, their mistakes, and sorts of commitment. Sal chases the dream back and forth on the highways between the East and West coasts, and find that the dream has little staying power that it?s merely a ?sad paradise? when he finally catches up with it in New Orleans, Denver, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York.
