The Little Prince [Le Petit Prince], is a novella and the most famous work of the French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery (19001944). The novella is both the most-read and most-translated book in the French language, and was voted the best book of the 20th century in France. After the outbreak of the Second World War Saint-Exupery became exiled in North America. In the midst of personal upheavals and failing health, he produced almost half of the writings for which he would be remembered, including a tender tale of loneliness, friendship, love and loss, in the form of a young prince fallen to Earth. An earlier memoir by the author had recounted his aviation experiences in the Sahara Desert, and he is thought to have drawn on those same experiences in The Little Prince. Since its first publication in the United States, the novella has been adapted to numerous art forms and media, including audio recordings, radio plays, live stage, film screen, television, ballet, and operatic works. The Little Prince is a poetic tale, with watercolour illustrations by the author, in which a pilot stranded in the desert meets a young prince fallen to Earth from a tiny asteroid. The story is philosophical and includes social criticism, remarking on the strangeness of the adult world. It was written during a period when Saint-Exupery fled to North America subsequent to the Fall of France during the Second World War, witnessed first hand by the author and captured in his memoir Flight to Arras. The adult fable, according to one review, is actually ...an allegory of Saint-Exuperys own life--his search for childhood certainties and interior peace, his mysticism, his belief in human courage and brotherhood.... but also an allusion to the tortured nature of their relationship. Though ostensibly styled as a childrens book, The Little Prince makes several observations about life and human nature. For example, Saint-Exupery tells of a fox meeting the young prince during his travels on Earth. The storys essence is contained in the lines uttered by the fox to the little prince: On ne voit bien quavec le cur. Lessentiel est invisible pour les yeux. (One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eyes.) Other key thematic messages are articulated by the fox, such as: Tu deviens responsable pour toujours de ce que tu as apprivoise. (You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.) and Cest le temps que tu as perdu pour ta rose qui fait ta rose si importante. (It is the time you have lost for your rose that makes your rose so important.) The foxs messages are arguably the books most famous quotations because they deal with human relationships.ABOUT AUTHOR:Antoine de Saint-Exupery, officially Antoine Marie Jean-Baptiste Roger, comte de Saint Exupery (29 June 1900 31 July 1944) was a French aristocrat, writer, poet, and pioneering aviator. He became a laureate of several of Frances highest literary awards and also won the U.S. National Book Award. He is best remembered for his novella The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) and for his lyrical aviation writings, including Wind, Sand and Stars and Night Flight.

Sei anni fa, ebbi un incidente col mio aeroplano nel deserto del Sahara. Qualche cosa si era rotta nel motore, e siccome non avevo con me ne un meccanico, ne dei passeggeri. Mi accinsi da solo a cercare di riparare il guasto. Era una questione di vita o di morte, perche avevo acqua da bere soltanto per una settimana...Potete immaginare il mio stupore di essere svegliato all'alba da una strana vocetta: "e;Mi disegni, per favore, una pecora?"e;...E fu cos che feci la conoscenza del piccolo principe.A cinquant'anni dalla pubblicazione negli Stati Uniti del libro, Il Piccolo Principe divenuto un long seller internazionale, un testo chiave di formazione. Antoine de Saint-Exupry, il suo autore, era un aviatore e un umanista: adorava volare e s'interessava agli uomini.Qualche mese dopo l'apparizione del suo capolavoro, scomparve in aereo sul Mar Mediterraneo.Ma la favola del ragazzino dai capelli d'oro continua.* * *Domando perdono ai bambini di aver dedicato questo libro a una persona grande. Ho una scusa seria: questa persona grande il miglior amico che abbia al mondo. Ho una seconda scusa: questa persona grande pu capire tutto, anche i libri per bambini; e ne ho una terza: questa persona grande abita in Francia, ha fame, ha freddo e ha molto bisogno di essere consolata. E se tutte queste scuse non bastano, dedicher questo libro al bambino che questa grande persona stato. Tutti i grandi sono stati bambini una volta. (Ma pochi di essi se ne ricordano). Perci correggo la mia dedica:A LEONE WERTHQUANDO ERA UN BAMBINO

Diese Ubersetzung vom Kleinen Prinzen ist das Ergebnis der jahrelangen Beschaftigung Tullio Aurelios mit den Schriften von Saint-Exupery. Gleichzeitig schwingt in ihr immer noch der Klang der ihm und vielen anderen vertrauten Originalubersetzung von Grete und Josef Leitgeb mit, die Tullio Aurelio Ende der 90er Jahre teilweise modernisiert hat und die sich Jahre lang in seinem Ohr und in seinem Gedachtnis eingepragt hat. Allerdings charakterisiert die Treue zum Kleinen Prinzen die aktuelle bersetzung: Sie ist dem franzsischen Original, auch dessen Geist, nher. "e;Dieses literarische Wunderwerk von Antoine de St. Exupery ist ein Begleiter"e; des Lebensweges von Tullio Aurelio gewesen; seine bersetzung ist "e;ein Meisterwerk der Verfeinerung und Werterhaltung"e; des Werkes. So beschreibt der Autor einer Rezension diese neue bersetzungUnd der Grafiker, mit dem Tullio Aurelio bald smtliche Ausgaben des Kleinen Prinzen, betreute, schreibt: "e;Die akribische Genauigkeit Tullio Aurelios, Text und Bild in Einklang zu bringen, hat den deutschen Ausgaben des Kleinen Prinzen ihr wertvolles Bild gegeben. Diese bersetzung des Buches zeugt vom Wissen um Saint-Exupry und sein Werk. Tullio Aurelio schafft es, aus umfassender Kenntnis dem Text noch neue Akzente zu verleihen."e;Und eine Rezensentin schreibt: "e;Wenn man die bekannte bersetzung aus den 50ern kennt, ist man versucht, beide Bcher nebeneinander zu legen und zu sehen, was anders ist. Schnell wird man aber von Tullio Aurelios bersetzung in den Bann gezogen und erlebt die Geschichte wieder neu. Feine Nuancen weben den Teppich dieser wunderbaren Geschichte und hllen ein, wie der wehende Mantel des Prinzen in einer der wunderbaren Zeichnungen. Feinheiten in der sprachlichen Formulierung machen diese Interpretation zu einem Genuss und einer Bereicherung im Verstndnis dieser Zeiten berdauernden Geschichte."e;Grete und Josef Leitgeb bersetzten 1950 als erste den Kleinen Prinzen in die deutsche Sprache.
