Overview

Translated English Description:

In El Principito, that Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote a few years before his death, it seemed that the author had prophesied that which would have to be his last. In effect, the author, a pilot in the war, one day disappeared during a mission and no one ever knew what happened to him. He left a short literary inheritence but it was of high quality, and in it, El Principito has been considered, since its publication as a small work, shows, that under the mantle of a fairy tale, it appeals to all ages by its tenderness and its beautiful philosophical base. In effect, here is a fable that shows that illusions can possibly be real, that the important things are not the things you see at first, and that a world of illusion as as much validity as the real one.

Spanish Description:

En El Principito, que Antoine de Saint-Exupéry escribió poco años antes de su muerte, pareciera que el autor hubiera profetizado el que habría de ser su final. En efecto, el autor, un piloto durante la guerra, un día desapareció durante una misión y nunca se volvió a saber de él. Dejó una herencia literaria breve pero de alta calidad, y entre ella, El Principito ha sido considerado, desde su publicación como una pequeña obra, muestra, que bajo el manto de un cuento infantil, apela a todas las edades por su ternura y su bello fondo filosófico. En efecto, aquí hay una fábula que muestra que las ilusiones se pueden llevar a cabo, que las cosas esenciales no son las que se ven a primera vista y que un mundo de ilusión tiene tanta validez como el real.
