  1. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

  2. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry  (29 June 1900 – 31 July 1944, Mort pour la France), was a French aristocrat, writer, poet, and pioneering aviator. He became a laureate of several of France's highest literary awards and also won the U.S. National Book Award. He is best remembered for his novella The Little Prince(Le Petit Prince) and for his lyrical aviation writings, including Wind, Sand and Stars and Night Flight.

  3. Saint-Exupéry was a successful commercial pilot before World War II, working airmail routes in Europe, Africa and South America. At the outbreak of war, he joined the French Air Force (Armée de l'Air), flying reconnaissance missions until France's armistice with Germany in 1940. • After being demobilised from the French Air Force, he travelled to the United States to persuade its government to enter the war against Nazi Germany. Following a 27-month hiatus in North America, during which he wrote three of his most important works, he joined the Free French Air Force in North Africa, although he was far past the maximum age for such pilots and in declining health. • He disappeared over the Mediterranean on his last assigned reconnaissance mission in July 1944, and is believed to have died at that time

  4. Saint-Exupéry´s most famousworkisThe Little Prince, translated into over 250 languages and dialects. The Little Prince is a poetic tale self-illustrated in watercolours in which a pilot stranded in the desert meets a young prince fallen to Earth from a tiny asteroid. The story is philosophical and includes societal criticism, remarking on the strangeness of the adult world.

  5. Though ostensibly a children's book, The Little Prince makes several profound and idealistic observations about life and human nature. • For example, Saint-Exupéry tells of a fox meeting the young prince during his travels on Earth. The story's essence is contained in the lines uttered by the fox to the little prince: On ne voitbienqu'avec le cœur. L'essentielest invisible pour les yeux. ("One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye.")[ • Other key thematic messages are articulated by The Fox, such as: Tudeviensresponsable pour toujours de cequetu as apprivoisé. ("You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.") and C'est le temps quetu as perdu pour ta rose qui fait ta rose siimportante. ("It is the time you have lost for your rose that makes your rose so important.") • The Fox's messages are arguably the most famous because of their nature of dealing with relationships.
