After you have read these pages, please answer the following questions;

1- What does the Englishman do for a living?

2- When Santiago begins his trek across the desert, he meets an Englishman who is a student of alchemy. In many ways they are alike: both are pursuing their “Personal Legends,” both have encountered the ideas of alchemy. How is their approach to life and learning different?

3- The Englishman, whom Santiago meets when he joins the caravan to the Egyptian pyramids, is—like Santiago—joining the caravan as part of a quest. What is the Englishman searching for?

4- Author Paulo Coelho says that the biggest obstacle most people face in pursuing their Personal Legend is, “the fear of realizing the dream for which we fought all our lives.

How does this explain the Crystal Merchant’s failure to travel to Mecca?
