Summary/Abstract: This paper represents a short excursion through the labirinth of "narrative forest" in order to analize the mythical values of the Mateiu Caragiale’s novel, even if not so deeply backgrounded. The myth which we have identified may be considered relevant for the substantiality of this novel, in spite of its hidden means, waiting for being revealed by a myth‑analitical interpretation. We tried to view beyond the realistic features, so that we have associated the imaginary voyage of Pantazi around the whole globe with the myth of Great journey.
