9780152164157: Le Petit Prince

ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPÉRY (1900-1944). Intensément impliqué dans les premières années de l´aviation commerciale, ses romans sont intimement liés à ses expériences en tant que pilote. Employé par la compagnie Latécoère, il s´en chargera du courrier de Toulouse au Sénégal, parcours qui se prolongera jusqu´en Amérique du Sud en 1929. À partir de 1932, il se consacrera à l´écriture et au journalisme, ce qui l´amènera au Vietnam, à Moscou et à l´Espagne de la guerre civile. Pendant la deuxième Guerre Mondiale, il deviendra l´une des voix de la Résistance et à New-York il essaiera de faire entrer les américains dans le conflit. Au printemps 44, il rejoindra une patrouille de reconnaissance basé en Sardaigne, puis en Corse, et le 31 juillet de cette année son avion disparaîtra en mer et ne sera retrouvé qu´en 2000. « Le Petit Prince » (1943) fut écrit à New-York et publié avec ses propres aquarelles. En France sera publié posthumément en 1946, chez Gallimard. Le récit raconte la rencontre entre un aviateur, dont l´avion tombe en panne au bel milieu du désert du Sahara et, pendant qu´il essaie de le réparer, un petit garçon s´approche de lui et lui demande de dessiner un mouton. C´est ainsi que commence un des livres les plus humains et les plus touchants qu´un lecteur peut espérer trouver dans son expérience en tant que tel.

Product Description:

Je demande pardon aux enfants d'avoir dédié ce livre à une grande personne. J'ai une excuse sérieuse : cette grande personne est le meilleur ami que j'ai au monde. J'ai une autre excuse : cette grande personne peut tout comprendre, même les livres pour enfants. J'ai une troisième excuse : cette grande personne habite la France où elle a faim et froid. Elle a besoin d'être consolée. Si toutes ces excuses ne suffisent pas, je veux bien dédier ce livre à l'enfant qu'a été autrefois cette grande personne. Toutes les grandes personnes ont d'abord été des enfants. (Mais peu d'entre elles s'en souviennent.) C'est un plaisir de publier cette nouvelle, de haute qualité, et l'édition à prix abordable de cette histoire intemporelle.
