The following questions ask you to trance Santiago's journey through the hero's journey that you learned in this unit. Match the quote/description on the left with the stage if the hero's journey on the right:
1. Santiago wants to stay with Fatima and wonders if she is more important than his treasure. He considers saying behind
2. So he began to wander through the city and found models at the gates. There was a small building there, with a window where people bought tickets to Africa. And he knew that Egypt was in Africa.
"Can I help you?" asked the man behind the window.
"Maybe tomorrow," said the boy, moving away. If he sold just one of his shee he'd have enough to get to the other shore of the strait. The idea frightened him
"Another dream," saud the ticket seller to his assistant, watching the boy walk away. "He doesn't have enough money to travel."
While standing at the ticket window, the boy had remembered his flock, and decided he should go back to being a shepherd. In two years he had learned everything about shepherding; he knew how to shear sheep, how to care for pregnant ewes, how to protect sheep from wolves. He knew all the fields and pastures of Andalusia. And he knew what was the fair price for every one of his animals.
3. Santiago works for the crystal merchant, journeys to the oasis and faces obstacles
4. "I have had the same dream twice," he said. "I had dreamed that I was in a field with my sheep, when a child appeared and began to play with the animals... The child went on playing eiht mu sheep for quite a while," continued the boy, a bit upset. "And suddenly, the child took me by both hands and transported me to the Egyptian pyramids."
"Then, at the Egyptian pyramids.. The child said to me, 'If you come here, you will find a hidden treasure.'"
5. Santiago speaks the Language of the World; he communicates with the desert, the wind, and the sun:
"The boy reached through to the Soul of the World, and saw that it was part of the Soul of God. and he saw that the Soul of God was his own soul. And that he, a boy, could perform miracles."
Santiago turns himself into the wind.
6. "I'm the king of Salem," the old man had said.
"Why would a king be talking with a shepherd?" the boy asked, awed and embarrassed.
"For several reasons. But let's say that the most important thing is that you have succeeded in discovering your destiny." The boy didn't know what a person's "destiny" was.
"It's what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their destiny is. "At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid to dream, and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives. But, as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realize their destiny."
7. Santiago sells his flock of sheep and takes the boat to Tangier

2. Soon everything around downstairs was shut and fastened. Janie mounted the stairs with her lamp. The light in her hand was like a spark of sun-stuff washing her face in fire. Her shadow behind fell black and headlong down the stairs. Now, in her room, the place tasted fresh again. The wind through the open windows had broomed out all the fetid feeling of absence and nothingness. She closed in and sat down. Combing road-dust out of her hair. Thinking.
The day of the gun, and the bloody body, and the courthouse came and commenced to sing a sobbing sign out of every corner in the room; out of each and every chair and thing. Commenced to sing, commenced to sob and sigh, signing and sobbing. Then Tea Cake came prancing around her where she was and the song of the sigh flew out of the window and lit in the top of the pine trees.
