He lay down in the grass and wept, until a fox came along. The fox desired to be tamed and explained to the prince that his rose really was indeed unique and special, because she was the object of the prince's love.
The fox also explained that, in a way, the prince had tamed the rose, and that this is why the prince was now feeling so responsible for her. The prince then took time to tame the fox, though the two ultimately parted ways, teary-eyed.
The prince next came across a railway switchman, who told him how passengers constantly rushed from one place to another aboard trains, never satisfied with where they were and not knowing what they were after; only the children among them ever bothered to look out the windows.
A merchant then talked to the prince about his product, a pill that eliminated thirst, which was very popular, saving people fifty-three minutes a week. The prince replied that he would instead gladly use that extra time to go around finding fresh water.
Back in the present moment, it is the eighth day after the narrator's plane-crash and the narrator is dying of thirst; fortunately, he and the prince together find a well. The narrator later finds the prince talking to the snake, discussing his return home and eager to see his rose again, who he worries has been left to fend for herself.
The prince bids an emotional farewell to the narrator and states that if it looks as though he has died, it is only because his body was too heavy to take with him to his planet. The prince warns the narrator not to watch him leave, as it will make him upset.
The narrator, realizing what will happen, refuses to leave the prince's side; the prince consoles the narrator by saying that he only need look at the stars to think of the prince's lovable laughter, and that it will seem as if all the stars are laughing. The prince then walks away from the narrator and allows the snake to bite him, falling without making a sound.
The next morning, the narrator tries to look for the prince, but is unable to find his body. The story ends with the narrator's drawing of the landscape where the prince and the narrator met and where the snake took the prince's life.
The narrator requests that anyone in that area encountering a small man who refuses to answer questions should contact the narrator immediately. Tone and writing style The story of The Little Prince is recalled in a sombre, measured tone by the pilot-narrator, in memory of his small friend, "a memorial to the prince—not just to the prince, but also to the time the prince and the narrator had together".
You can't ride a flock of birds to another planet The fantasy of the Little Prince works because the logic of the story is based on the imagination of children, rather than the strict realism of adults. According to the author himself it was extremely difficult to start his creative writing processes.
His survival ordeal was about to begin Egypt, In The Little Prince, its narrator, the pilot, talks of being stranded in the desert beside his crashed aircraft.
Their maps were primitive and ambiguous. Lost among the sand dunes with a few grapes, a thermos of coffee, a single orange, and some wine, the pair had only one day's worth of liquid. They both began to see mirages , which were quickly followed by more vivid hallucinations.
By the second and third days, they were so dehydrated that they stopped sweating altogether.
In a letter written to his sister Didi from the Western Sahara's Cape Juby , where he was the manager of an airmail stopover station in , he tells of raising a fennec which he adored. In the novella the Wise Fox, believed to be modelled after the author's intimate New York City friend Silvia Hamilton Reinhardt, tells the prince that his rose is unique and special, because she is the one that he loves.
The fearsome, grasping baobab trees , researchers have contended, were meant to represent Nazism attempting to destroy the planet. I'm all right. I can't help it.
It's my body". Consuelo was the rose in The Little Prince. I should never have fled.
I should have guessed at the tenderness behind her poor ruses. The author had also met a precocious eight-year-old with curly blond hair while residing with a family in Quebec City, Canada in , Thomas De Koninck, the son of philosopher Charles De Koninck. In his writings as a special correspondent for Paris-Soir the author described his transit from France to the U. Late at night during the train trip he ventured from his first class accommodation into the third class carriages, where he came upon large groups of Polish families huddled together, returning to their homeland.
Between the man and the woman a child had hollowed himself out a place and fallen asleep. He turned in his slumber, and in the dim lamplight I saw his face. What an adorable face! A golden fruit had been born of these two peasants This is a musician's face, I told myself. This is the child Mozart. This is a life full of beautiful promise.
Little princes in legends are not different from this. Protected, sheltered, cultivated, what could not this child become? When by mutation a new rose is born in a garden, all gardeners rejoice.
They isolate the rose, tend it, foster it. Et un peu plus tard tu ajoutais: -Tu sais Je ne le savais pas.
Elles se rassurent comme elles peuvent. Mais non! Je ne crois rien! Mais, impitoyable, il ajouta: -Tu confonds tout Il n'a jamais rien fait d'autre que des additions. Mais ce n'est pas un homme, c'est un champignon! Ce n'est pas important la guerre des moutons et des fleurs?
Il ne put rien dire de plus. Je me moquais bien de mon marteau, de mon boulon, de la soif et de la mort. Je le pris dans les bras. Je lui disais: "La fleur que tu aimes n'est pas en danger Je te dessinerai une armure pour ta fleur Elle choisissait avec soin ses couleurs.
Je vous demande pardon Vous n'auriez pas un paravent? Il faut les regarder et les respirer. Les fleurs sont si contradictoires! Mais, comme il disait, "On ne sait jamais! Evidemment sur notre terre nous sommes beaucoup trop petits pour ramoner nos volcans. C'est pourquoi ils nous causent tant d'ennuis.
Il croyait ne plus jamais devoir revenir.
La fleur toussa. Je te demande pardon. Il fut surpris par l'absence de reproches. Il ne comprenait pas cette douceur calme. Tu n'en a rien su, par ma faute. Cela n'a aucune importance. Laisse ce globe tranquille. Je n'en veux plus. L'air frais de la nuit me fera du bien.
Je suis une fleur. Sinon qui me rendra visite?
Tu seras loin, toi. J'ai mes griffes. Tous les hommes sont des sujets. Je te l'interdis.
J'ai fait un long voyage et je n'ai pas dormi C'est un ordre. Alors je Ce serait ma faute. Faites-moi plaisir Ordonnez au soleil de se coucher Il faut exiger de chacun ce que chacun peut donner, reprit le roi. Je l'exigerai. Mais j'attendrai, dans ma science du gouvernement, que les conditions soient favorables.
Je vais repartir! Ne pars pas, je te fais ministre! Je n'ai pas fait encore le tour de mon royaume. C'est le plus difficile. Je n'ai pas besoin d'habiter ici. Je l'entends la nuit. Tu pourras juger ce vieux rat. Il n'y en a qu'un. Elle pourrait m'ordonner, par exemple, de partir avant une minute. Il me semble que les conditions sont favorables Car, pour les vaniteux, les autres hommes sont des admirateurs. C'est pour saluer quand on m'acclame.
Malheureusement il ne passe jamais personne par ici. Le petit prince frappa ses mains l'une contre l'autre.
Le vaniteux salua modestement en soulevant son chapeau. Mais le vaniteux ne l'entendit pas.
