Transcript of The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

This story is told in a simple fashion, as children's stories typically are, but it is not really a children's story. It is a story of a grown-up who has
almost forgotten what is important
. It is the story of the pilot's reconnection to his own sense of imagination and wonder. It is the story of the
re-opening
of the pilot's heart.
Major Themes Of The Story:
Love at a distance:
Another theme often found in the book, is learning to love from a distance.

The little Prince having left his home planet starts to realize how much he truly loves and misses his
rose.


The fox after asking to be tamed, is saddened by the departure of the
Prince
, stating that he will weep.
The Little Prince
Published in
1943
, The Little Prince is a fantasy about a
pilot
, stranded in the
Sahara
, who meets a small boy from another planet. The boy, who refers to himself as a
prince
, is on a quest for knowledge. The little prince asks questions of the pilot and tells the pilot of life on his own very small planet.
Importance of Relationships:
The Little Prince learns the importance of relationships when he encounters the
fox
. Who in turn presents him with the
importance of being tamed
. It is only when the Little Prince tames the fox that the fox sees him as more than just an ordinary little boy.
Celebrating One's
Uniqueness:
The Little Prince is a reminder of how important it is to be
true to one's self
. It is filled with examples of "grown-up" characters whose exaggerated focus on a specific thing or a concept causes them to lose their originality and live as rats on a treadmill.
