This article aims to address some of the modulations of the Voyage in the literary work of João Penha (*1839 -1919). Paratextually displayed in several books by this author, the Journey becomes a recurrent topic, alternating the perigrinatio literaris with the ups and downs of the peregrinatio amoris. This imaginary and interior journey (which could be included in the first area that Maria Alzira Seixo identified on the Poetics of the Voyage) coincides, in short, with a deep motus animi continuus of the poet, who succeeded in condensing the interpretation key of his work in the most original and controversial of his titles: The Overland Journey to the Dreamland.
