The Little Prince - The Rose Character Seminar
Transcript of The Little Prince - The Rose Character Seminar
SOCIETY THE ROSE:
LESSONS LEARNED THE ROSE:
MEANING WORKS CITED Loneliness
The Little Prince believes that The Rose prevents him (The Little Prince), from being lonely. However, the rose becomes self-centered, over exaggerated and needy, which causes the Little Prince to feel even lonelier.
“So The Little Prince, despite all the goodwill of his love, he had soon come to mistrust her. He had taken seriously certain inconsequential remarks and had grown very unhappy.” – Page 24 Greediness – Between a parent and a child
After tedious years of the Little Prince, helping and feeding the rose to grow up, the rose becomes greedy. The rose continues to ask for more and fails to appreciate what she has received from the Little Prince. Consequently, the Prince finds mistrust in her, even though he still loves her. As a result, the Little Prince leaves his planet.
“Of course I love you,” the flower told him. “It was my fault you never knew. It doesn’t matter. But you were just as silly as I was. Try to be happy… Put that glass thing down. I don’t want it anymore.” – The rose, page 27. Love
Although the Little Prince leaves his planet because of the rose, he wishes to return because of the rose.
When the Little Prince is looking at the bunch of roses:
“But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she’s the one I’ve watered. Since she’s the one I put under glass. Since she’s the one I sheltered behind a screen. Since she’s the one for whom I killed the caterpillars. Since she’s the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she’s my rose.” •The rose has three symbolic meanings.• It symbolizes balance, the carrier of secrets, and immortal love.• Its symbolic meaning comes from its structure. Balance
This meaning of balance is evident in the character the Rose through her contrasting characteristics. Her beauty attracts the Prince but her ignorance and lack of modesty pushes the Prince away.
The carrier of secrets
Its meaning comes from the tradition the Romans did during their council meetings.
•This symbolic meaning is displayed by the Rose in this line.•“Don’t hang around like this; it’s irritating. You made up your mind to leave. Now go.” For she didn’t want him to see her crying. She was a proud flower… page 27 "Rose Color Meanings - Meaning of Rose Colors." Rose Color Meanings - Meaning of Rose Colors. N.p., n.d. Web. 14 Jan. 2013
