Journeys in the Selected Novels of Oyono, Ngugi and George Eliot

Meka's journey to the medal award ceremony in "The Old Man and the Medal" encapsulates a journey of self- discoevery and transformation just like Wariinga's and Silas Marner's journeys. The physical and mental toture meka suffers at the the hands of whites makes him to take a critical look at himself and then turns against the religion he hah embraced so much. He goes back to superstition. He does not even want to hear the name Jesus Christ. Wariinga's journey in "Devil on the Cross" equally changes her character and her perception of the world. At the end of the journey,she becomes a new dynamic character who does not finally accept defeat and humiliation she initially faced. Hers is not only a physical journey but also a spiritual one of homecoming, self-discovery and reconnection to the roots. Equally, Silas's journey from Lantern Yard to Raveloe in "Silas Marner" is one of self-understanding and complete metamorphosis as he no longer an isolatee but a regular church attedant.
