    Flight to Arras by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (teknochik)
    teknochik: NObody seems to know this fabulous book. It is a reflective memoire by St Expery as he was piloting a reconnaissance mission over Germany in WW2. It is a beautiful commentary on war and what it does to humanity. Possibly one of the most hidden and understated gems of the 20th century. When I read this book, I suddenly understood "The Little Prince" with far more depth.… (more)

Fábula mítica y relato filosófico que interroga acerca de la relación del ser humano con su prójimo y con el mundo, El Principito concentra, con maravillosa simplicidad, la constante reflexión de Saint-Exupéry sobre la amistad, el amor, la responsabilidad y el sentido de la vida.

Conoce las increíbles aventuras de El Principito y su llegada a la Tierra.
  maestramirayda | Jun 30, 2024 |
Longer than I anticipated considering the audience it was meant for, but wonderful nonetheless. The book juxtaposes the perspective of a child to that of an adult by taking the Little Prince to different planets to meet different people, but finding that they all seem quite backward in their adult logic. It is also a little bit of a coming of age story, in that as the Prince travels the universe, he gradually grows to realize what he's thrown away by leaving his flower on his planet. The Prince comes to understand loss and grief as he makes friends on earth and has to leave them. He also develops a maturity as he get closer to facing his own death, and teaches his pilot friend that death is not really a permanent thing in your heart. A lovely book that has many valuable lessons for the young, and young at heart. ( )

I was amazed at how this beloved book is so full of bullshit. There are no deep thoughts at all, everything just sounds nice at first glance.
I started straight up hating it when it set up a false dichotomy beetween the importance of numbers and other qualities that cannot be expressed in numbers. Mathemathics is not just useful, it can be beautiful too. Too many people, especially children already dislike math, it needs no further negative light on it. ( )

Antoan de sent Egziperi (1900) linijski i ratni pilot, poginuo 1944. kao pilot-izviđač, oboren od nemačkih aviona. Pored niza romana o pilotima ("Južna poštanska služba", "Noćni let", "Zemlja ljudi", "Ratni pilot") napisao roman "Tvrđava", te neobično poetsku knjigu "Mali princ". Egziperi neguje kult razumevanja i duboke moralnosti, razvijajući vanvremensku veru u moć preobražavanja čoveka i dosezanja do pravog saznavanja njegove prirode. Mali princ je knjiga za male i velike, napisana poput bajke ona otkriva utopijski svet kroz priču o dečaku dospelom sa udaljene i sićušne planete i njegovom traganju za odanošću i ljubavlju. Ovo je knjiga i o stvarnom svetu, o čoveku, njegovim zabludama i grehovima, o nevinosti u otkrivanju najdubljih i najdragocenijih vrednosti postojanja, koja svojom sugestivnšću i poetskom toplinom osvaja decenijama generacije mladih i odraslih čitalaca.

"Il Piccolo Principe" è una di quelle letture che entrano nell'animo del lettore. Antoine de Saint- Exupéry con il suo stile semplice e poetico mette il lettore davanti ad una riflessione sul senso vero della vita e sull'importanza di coltivare i sentimenti. Una fiaba senza età e per ogni età, da leggere e rileggere.
Vi segnaliamo la pagina del blog di Liberrima in cui parliamo del racconto dello scrittore francese:

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, most metaphysical of aviators, has written a fairy tale for grownups. The symbolism is delicate and tenuous. It challenges man the adult, and deplores the loss of the child in man.
added by Shortride | editTime (Apr 26, 1943)
 
"The Little Prince" is a parable for grown people in the guise of a simple story for children-a fable with delightful delicate pictures of the little Prince on his adventurings. It is a lovely story in itself hich covers a poetic, yearning philosophy- not the sort of fable that can be tacked down neatly at its four corners but rather reflections on what are real matters of consequence.
