"My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer," the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky." Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams." Every few decades a book is published that changes the lives of its readers forever. The Alchemist is such a book. With over a million and a half copies sold around the world, The Alchemist has already established itself as a modern classic, universally admired. Paulo Coelho's charming fable, now available in English for the first time, will enchant and inspire an even wider audience of readers for generations to come. The Alchemist is the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his home in Spain he journeys to the markets of Tangiers and across the Egyptian desert to a fateful encounter with the alchemist. The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories have done, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, above all, following our dreams.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1,7, Universitat Hamburg (Institut fur Anglistik), Veranstaltung: Ben Jonson: Volpone und der Alchimist, 11 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Komodie The Alchemist von Ben Jonson ist eines der herausragenden satirischen Stucke seiner Zeit. Es handelt von drei Betrugern, die behaupten, der Alchemie machtig zu sein, und damit die Leichtglaubigkeit und die Gier ihrer Opfer ausnutzen. Die folgende Arbeit beschaftigt sich mit der Raum- und Zeitstruktur dieses Stuckes. Als Primarliteratur dient die 1985 erschienene Ausgabe von The Alchemist. Als theoretische Grundlage fur diese Untersuchung beziehe ich mich auf Manfred Pfisters Das Drama. Der erste Teil befasst sich mit der zeitgenossischen Buhne, dem realen raumlichen Kontext und dem fiktiven Schauplatz von The Alchemist. Des Weiteren soll die Raumstruktur innerhalb des Stuckes analysiert werden. Dabei werde ich mich an Pfisters Terminologie und Einteilungsmethodik orientieren. Der zweite Teil befasst sich mit den raumlichen Lokalisierungstechniken und der Konkretisierung der Chronologie, sowie der Zeitstruktur innerhalb des Stuckes und der Semantisierung der Zeit. Den Schlussteil bildet die Zusammenfassung der Ergebnisse und deren Auswertung in Hinblick auf die Anwendbarkeit von Pfisters Terminologie. Der folgende Abschnitt befasst sich mit der historischen Buhne zur Zeit Ben Jonsons. The Alchemist wurde 1610 im Blackfriars Playhouse im Londoner Stadtteil Blackfriars von den King's Men uraufgefuhrt. Das Blackfriars Playhouse war eines von drei Theatern in London. Es handelte sich um ein indoor-Theater, dass 600-700 Zuschauer fasste und sich am Playhouse Yard befand: "

Unlike most other studies of alchemy and literature, which focus on alchemical imagery in poetry of specific periods or writers, this book traces the figure of the alchemist in Western literature from its first appearance in the Eighth Circle of Dante's Inferno down to the present. From the beginning alchemy has had two aspects: exoteric or operative (the transmutation of baser metals into gold) and esoteric or speculative (the spiritual transformation of the alchemist himself). From Dante to Ben Jonson, during the centuries when the belief in exoteric alchemy was still strong and exploited by many charlatans to deceive the gullible, writers in major works of many literatures treated alchemists with ridicule in an effort to expose their tricks. From the Renaissance to the Enlightenment, as that belief weakened, the figure of the alchemist disappeared, even though Protestant poets in England and Germany were still fond of alchemical images. But when eighteenth-century science almost wholly undermined alchemy, the figure of the alchemist began to emerge again in literature—now as a humanitarian hero or as a spirit striving for sublimation. Following these esoteric romanticizations, as scholarly interest in alchemy intensified, writers were attracted to the figure of the alchemist and his quest for power. The fin-de-siecle saw a further transformation as poets saw in the alchemist a symbol for the poet per se and others, influenced by the prevailing spiritism, as a manifestation of the religious spirit. During the interwar years, as writers sought surrogates for the widespread loss of religious faith, esoteric alchemy underwent a pronounced revival, and many writers turned to the figure of the alchemist as a spiritual model or, in the case of Paracelsus in Germany, as a national figurehead. This tendency, theorized by C. G. Jung in several major studies, inspired after World War II a vast popularization of the figure in novels—historical, set in the present, or juxtaposing past and present— in England, France, Germany, Italy, Brazil, and the United States. The inevitable result of this popularization was the trivialization of the figure in advertisements for healing and cooking or in articles about scientists and economists. In sum: the figure of the alchemist in literature provides a seismograph for major shifts in intellectual and cultural history.
