Essays on The Little Prince

The Little Prince is a book about a man who ends up stranded in the desert who meets a young boy.  This young boy is a prince who comes from a tiny planet.  The Prince begins to tell the story about his life on his planet where he was the caretaker of all that grew and of the rose that appeared, its beauty capturing his heart.  However, the rose lied to him about something, causing him to become distrustful of her and to become lonely.  He decided to leave the planet and ended up on Earth after landing on six other planets where he was not happy at all.  On each of the planets, he met men who were obsessed in one way or another with profit, fame and power, concepts which seemed to defy logic to him.

The Little Prince was written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.  Antoine was born in 1900 in France and considered himself a pilot above all else.  He began to write The Little Prince during World War II, after Germany’s invasion of France, an event that forced him to flee to the United States.  No doubt this virtual exile contributed heavily to the tone and content of The Little Prince.

The character interactions in the Little Prince are mostly between the Prince and The Narrator.  We do learn the narrator is an aviator (just as Saint-Exupery was prior to WWII).  However, there are also many strange interactions when it came to the Prince.  The Prince had a rose who was his best friend till she lied to him.  He also talked to a fox and a snake, the latter of which claimed his bite could send the young prince back to his world in the sky, if he wished.  At one point The Prince even mistakes his echo for a person and attempts to hold a conversation with it.  In all, The Prince is presented as an almost child-like innocent.

The Little Prince stands as not only an exorcism of Saint-Exupery’s personal demons, but also as an indictment of the moral decay he saw in the world around him.  It is interesting to consider this novel in light of other authors who had similar concerns such as Huxley and Orwell.  This novel added to a long tradition of writers using fiction to protest injustice and moral decay or to express concerns over developing issues, such as Orwell’s fear of the development of a surveillance society, which we today are rapidly finding ourselves immersed within.

Though The Little Prince found Saint-Exupery little fame or success, his novel stands as a literary classic.  The structure of the tale does, however, give many students difficulty when trying to prepare essays.  Professional writers (such as those on our staff) are use to this and can quickly and easily prepare you a high quality, comprehensive essay on this and many other topics.  Place your order through our secure website today and sleep easy tonight, knowing your project is in good hands.
