Relationship between Man and Nature in Paulo Coelho’s Alchemist: An Ecocriticial Study
AbstractThe study is an attempt to examine the aspects of the relationship between human beings and nature through the Ecocritical study of Paulo Coelho’s novel Alchemist. Through the application of the theory of Ecocriticism, the study explores the role of nature in the lives of human beings and their success. The study deals with the importance of earth and nature and shows that without nature our life is nothing; without nature no one can achieve one’s goals. Ecocriticism throws light on the way all the creations of universe have rights and how the existence of both the human beings and nature influences each other. There is a description of friendly behaviour of nature towards its admirer. Nature is a supreme being and human beings depend on it for everything. It plays a great role in the development of human beings. All the things in the universe, even the sand of desert helps a man to reach his destination. No one can feel this peace but when a person pays attention on this, he feels it passionately.
