WHAT IS “THE LITTLE PRINCE”?
“The Little Prince” is a children’s book written and illustrated by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It was first published in French and English (as “The Little Prince”) in the United States in 1943. Time Magazine wrote about how the author’s own experiences inspired “The Little Prince”: “At the most obvious level, the plane crash that begins the story, through which the narrator meets the main character, reflects a real misadventure that left the author stranded in the Sahara in the midst of the 1930s… Saint-Exupéry had already published “Wind, Sand and Stars” in 1939, an account of the ordeal in the Saharan desert, embellished with striking descriptions of hallucinations and mirages. “The Little Prince” will only be published in France until the fall of the Vichy regime in 1944. That same year, Saint-Exupéry disappeared forever during a wartime reconnaissance flight over Europe, never benefiting financially from his his most famous work. The wreckage of his plane was discovered at sea 60 years ago. rd in 2006.
Translated into over 300 languages and dialects, “The Little Prince” is one of the best-selling books of all time. Many adaptations have been made of it, including for film, television, ballet and opera.
