This idea of escape to is at the heart of the Portal Quest Fantasy, where a protagonist – as the category’s name might suggest – enters a fantasy world through a portal. The portal can be physical (like a wardrobe) or more metaphorical (like Sam going further from home than he’s ever been in Fellowship of the Ring). Specifically, the protagonist is going from the mundane world with which they are familiar, through a portal, into a fantasy world with which they are very much not familiar.
