Different people use different means, some go on grand journeys hoping to find some sort of wisdom in their experience.

In both stories the main character lives a well off life but becomes dissatisfied by societal conventions.
Into the Wild is a film by Sean Penn that talks about the journey Chris decided to take, leaving behind his parents and his dreams.He graduated from Emory University as a top student/athlete only to decide he was tired of everything and decided to embark in a journey into the Alaskan wilderness.Christopher McCandless decided to leave behind the american dream in seek of a life full of freedom.

His use of Romanticism and description of Nature portrays the significance of inner journeys and its possibility to change how an individual thinks about something. Coleridge was disappointed and frustrated that he couldn 't go on the adventure. The poet’s remark, ‘they are gone, and here I must remain/ this lime-tree bower my prison’ shows how he felt confined, not able to go anywhere as if he was stuck in a prison. He highlights his feeling of entrapment and seclusion evoking feelings of pity and sympathy from the readers.
