Choose six examples from The Alchemist that have to do with the theme of pursuing your personal legend, and write two to three paragraphs describing how the theme is treated or presented in the novel. ( State the 6 details before the theme description )
Here are some questions to consider as you write each Theme Description:
How do the ideas or actions of the main characters reflect different aspects of the theme? Does the theme develop or change over the course of The Alchemist? If so, how? If your evidence includes symbols, explain how the author uses those symbols to explore the theme. If your evidence includes specific quotes from the text, explain how those quotes provide examples of how the theme applies to The Alchemist?
