The life of French aviator and writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944) will be examined through his books and the ideas which underlie them—“the importance of responsibility, the fellowship it nurtures among men, the priority of an interior life”, as his biographer Stacy Schiff has said. Along with The Little Prince (1943), a children’s story for adults, the program will review Saint-Exupéry’s other fiction and nonfiction, which was inspired in large part by his experience in the early French air mail service in the 1920’s and 1930’s and in the French Air Force in World War II.
