Abstract

The research paper is written on Paulo Coelho’s novel The Alchemist which describes the expeditions of a young Andalusian shepherd, named Santiago who after having a recurring dream of a treasure, travels to Egypt. The journey is symbolic of the metamorphoses of the young shepherd’s life, whose personality develops with each expedition, exploration and experience and he becomes the true Alchemist. Santiago’s simplicity, innocence, struggles, his capability to adapt to the situation, and to look beyond the obstacles of life sets a new pattern of survival which unravels his true identity to himself and to the readers towards the end of the story. The paper is concerned with the study of the exploration and development of Santiago’s identity through his exhaustive expeditions.
