Kurzbeschreibung

1. September 2010 Collectors Library
'All grown-ups were once children - although few of them remember it'. A pilot forced to crash land in the Sahara desert encounters a little prince who is visiting the earth from his own small planet with its three volcanoes and a beautiful flower. Through this meeting, the aviator comes to discover many of life's universal truths which illuminate the human condition with all its foibles, cunning and eccentricities. This wonderful and remarkable book will enchant both children and adults alike. It is a strange and wonderful parable for all ages, championing the beauty and wisdom of childhood which fades when one becomes 'a grown up'. Antoine De Saint-Exupery's book has been translated into over 180 languages and sold over 80 million copies. Its magic is in its charm, its simplicity and its truths which speak to people of many nations and generations.

Mehr über den Autor

In seiner Heimat Frankreich gehört er zu den meistgelesenen Autoren, dort wurde Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944) für seine Werke schon zu Lebzeiten ausgezeichnet. Bereits seine frühen Romane, darunter "Nachtflug" (1931) und "Wind, Sand und Sterne" (1939), reflektieren seine Erlebnisse als Flieger und mit ihnen Grenzerfahrungen wie Einsamkeit und Todesgefahr. Weltruhm erlangte der Autor erst nach seinem Tod. "Der kleine Prinz" (1943), jene zauberhafte Geschichte um einen notgelandeten Flugreisenden mit Herz und Verstand, dürfte eines der bekanntesten Bücher der Welt sein. Zeit seines Lebens war Saint-Exupéry fasziniert von der Fliegerei und der modernen Technik. Sein Todestag ist ungewiss. Am 31. Juli 1944 startete er seinen letzten Aufklärungsflug, von dem er nicht zurückkehrte.

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

You could be excused for thinking that this book is one containing a simple story for young children about a Little Prince. How wrong you would be! This is far from the truth: it is much more. It is a complex story containing lots of ambiguities about a child with golden hair. These are all eruditely discussed before the actual story begins, in a section entitled "How It All Began". "Is The Little Prince a story written for children or is it a meditation intended for adults?"

The Art of Living is discussed, along with a system of values, and the train of thought behind them is the unifying element. You are invited to "look at the book, and allow yourself to travel from one image to the next... " It was written and published more than 50 years ago in the USA, and the author was a Frenchman who illustrated the book himself; it was later translated by Kathryn Woods. The Little Prince is still very popular and has now been translated into many languages. Shortly after it was first written, the author died--disappearing together with his plane somewhere over the Mediterranean. This Gift edition contains all the original illustrations, plus some more original drawings that came to light later and have been published here for the first time.--Susan Naylor

Synopsis

A recording of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic tale. On one level it is the story of an airman's discovery, in the desert, of a small boy from another planet and his stories of intergalactic travel. On the other hand it is a thought-provoking allegory of the human condition. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Einfach wunderbar naiv 23. Oktober 2013
Von MOON-LILA
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Die Drachenkugel - Sternleins magische Welt

Es ist eine wirklich wunderschöne Geschichte. Weltweit bekannt, für jederman. Es stellt gut die Wünsche und Sorgen eines Menschen auf sehr naiver Art und Weise, durch einen kleinen Jungen dar, der von einer unschuldigen Parallelwelt kommt.

It is a really beautiful story. World-wide known, for each to read. It is well represents the wishes and concerns of mankind in very artless manner, by a small boy who comes from an innocent parallel world.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A pleasure to have it 30. September 2013
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I was searching threw Amazon for a german and an english version of 'The little prince' and stummbled across this one. After the descriptions of the books themselves are all quite bad iI'll try to do my best and complete it: The book gets delivered in a protective cover as seen on the original picture but the actual envelope is wrapped in classic red linen with an embossed ship and its title in golden letters on the spine. The page edges are covered in gold and look really good in my oppinion. A drop of bitternes is that the drawings are in black and white and that wasn't written anywhere :( That's one star less. I'll add some pictures later :)

1.0 von 5 Sternen BN Publishing: Improving no-one's life! 8. Februar 2011
Von Freya - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I have absolutely adored the Little Prince since I was a little girl. I thought I'd buy a basic back-up copy to give to a friend as cost-friendly as I could and it was a huge mistake!
This BN Publishing version of The Little Prince is HORRIBLE!!! DO NOT BUY IT FOR ANYONE, especially if they have never heard the real story before! I own several copies of this book and this is the most AWFUL translation from the original French that I've ever read. The pictures are black and white and awful quality and it completely misses the point and beauty of the original story in EVERY WAY!! It's DREADFUL!!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Open the box 23. Oktober 2011
Von Marie-Jo Fortis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Let me start by saying that this is one of my favorite books. I read it before at least twice, once when a young girl --or an adolescent, another time in my twenties, and possibly a decade later. Lately, I was asked to place chapter 26 in its context. The occasion was a sad but moving one. That chapter had been read during a funeral, and now we were a group of women celebrating the interrupted life of a sixteen year old young man.

Because I was given that task --a lovely one at that-- I went on to find my old edition of Le Petit Prince and read it once more. It was a masterpiece before; it is a masterpiece now. After all these years, it has remained wrinkle free. Vivid. Vibrant. Witty. Filled with wisdom.

What struck me this time was the structure --the box motif. First, when the narrator humorously declares that he had to give up a career as a brilliant artist because the adults couldn't tell that he had drawn a boa swallowing an elephant. Instead, they saw a hat. Incidentally, a hat boxes a head. They refused to see beneath the surface, or were too lazy to try. So here we have a creator who renounces creating, simply because his audience lacks imagination. Although, in exchange, he becomes an aviator, thus getting closer to the stars. Amusing in appearance. Tragic in content. The boa is the box. The elephant is the content.

If you take these two animals for what they stand for, you can say that intelligence (for which the elephant is known) is being constricted. Absurdly suffocated.

Isn't that the essence of the whole story?

It's all in these first pages. All the satire and the spirituality. The rest is poetic elaboration. But what poetic elaboration!

Let's meet le petit prince who asks the narrator, whose plane breaks down in the desert, to draw him a sheep. Although the plane accident is based on a real Saint Exupéry's experience, the desert itself is a marvelous metaphysical metaphor for the white page / canvas / creativity / possibility.) When the narrator humors him, none of the sheep drawn by the aviator pleases the little prince. One looks sick, one looks old. Eager to repair his plane and starting to lack patience, the aviator sketches a crate and tells the little prince that his sheep is inside. That's exactly what I was looking for, says the young boy. The imagination of the child completes the work of the artist. In the world of childhood, creator and creation are one. There is a sense of unity that adulthood eventually breaks apart. Classifies. Categorizes. Boxes in.

For Saint Exupéry's motif of box has a double entendre. The first entendre is liberating. Open the box with your imagination, and you will see infinite possibilities. The little prince knows that. The other entendre is more familiar to us. A box implies something limited, locked, conventional. To oppose this notion comes the expression, "Thinking outside the box." So when our petit prince visits the Conceited Man, or the King, or the Businessman, or the Drunkard, each lives in his own sphere, basically unaware of his surroundings and victim of the isolation he has himself created. In other words, instead of giving and expanding his spirit toward the universe, each one of these men builds a box around himself. No wonder le petit prince thinks these are strange creatures and tries to get away from them as fast as he can. Only the lamplighter starts to get it when he seeks the contemplation of sunrises happening every minute on his planet. But only after listening to his oneiric visitor.

The desert, of course, is the opposite of a box. And if basically devoid of humans, it is not devoid of animals. The most important lesson le petit prince learns there comes from a fox in what is perhaps the most moving chapter of the book. The fox, who holds the wisdom of the heart, sends him back to his planet and to his rose.

But we're not over with the box theme just yet. There is the little prince's body now, abandoned by the prince's soul with the help of a snake bite, so that he can reach his planet more quickly. There is the box drawn by the narrator that contains the sheep that the prince takes with him to live on his planet with his rose. There are the intrinsic motives of life and death, that Saint Exupéry un-boxes. Not with answers, but with more questions. For ultimately, if Le Petit Prince mocks, satirizes, poeticizes, it is not a work that gives affirmations, but a work that wonders. It is a work that explores. The work of a writer / aviator.

A work where innocence and wisdom go hand in hand.

A work that opens our head --which should never --ever-- be a box.

P.S. I read Le Petit Prince in its original language (which is also my native tongue). But I have been told, and also read that the English translation to rely upon is the one by Katherine Woods. A reviewer here called Allie Jones makes a very good case of this. So I would urge any new reader of The Little Prince who is not familiar with the French language to follow Allie Jones' advice and obtain a copy of Katherine Woods' version of Saint Exupéry's masterpiece. It is unfortunate that Ms Woods' work is out of print, but used copies of her (more accurate) vision of The Little Prince are available.

1.0 von 5 Sternen A Crime of a Translation 31. März 2009
Von Sally J. Nottage - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Lost in Translation feedback best describes insight into what has happened with this new translation. This book IS for both children and adults. This new translation treats both as if they are either uneducated or have no comprehension for the writen word. By cutting out and using only the most basic words, this new translation has lost the meaning, depth and beauty that Woods was able to capture. I was insulted and insulted for the future young readers, that this translator took it upon himself to attempt to make something better and instead resulting in a version that could make people put the book down rather than wanting to read on.

I purchased this new version as a gift not realizing the translation was updated. Several times I re-read the first page and kept putting the book down. I thought that somewhere along the years I must have changed as I just felt something "lacking". The book did not come to life as I had remembered.

I then got out my book given to me as a gift by a babysitter over 40 years ago. I wanted to compare new and old as something just nagged at me that my memory could not be that off, even if I hadn't looked at this little book in so long a time. Surprise - I re-read the opening chapter over and over in disbelief at what and how the words had been changed.

My second thought was how could a publisher allow this translation to ever have been published.

Anyone reading The Little Prince with this new translation for the first time should absolutely read the edition translated by Woods.

I almost wanted to cry after I realized that I was unable to purchase a "new" book translated by Woods.

Horrified, I went to all the used book locations in town and purchased all (leaving one for the next person who found themselves in the same situation) of the Woods translations for future gifts.

That this new translator took it upon himself to think he could better what had already stood the test of time, well, I'd best stop but you can see that this book means a great deal to me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Captures the hearts and imaginations of all who read 6. Februar 2001
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:CD-ROM
Richard Gere is the principle narrator in this superbly produced CD format version of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic children's story The Little Prince. This fifty minute production is a technically flawless audio version of a pilot stranded in the desert and wakening one morning to see before him a little fellow who captures the hearts and imaginations of all who read (and now hear) this remarkable modern fable. Haley Joel Osment gives voice to the Little Prince, while Marina Orsini, Adam Frost, Richard Allen, Dave Walsh, Ara Y. Kentenjian, Patrick Selitz, and Mickey Kessler lend their talents to this multicast production, with music by Alexandre Stankevicius. The Little Prince is highly entertaining, enthusiastically recommended, and a "must" for school and community library audiobook CD collections.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Human Heart Is Very Mysterious 11. Juni 2002
Von gitanebooks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:CD-ROM
In this recording the stars shine, & you can hear a thousand bells jingling with the laughter of innocence & love. This isn't the complete text of St. Ex's masterpiece, yet it's so good that it adds to the understanding and to the joy of hearing old friends for the first time. Gere's voice is perfect. I could hear the voice of St. Ex, his imagined voice, the voice of his soul given life by his words. St. Ex's words created a wonderful story NOT for grownups but certainly not just for children, either.
The little prince encounters the major vices & illogic of a grownup-structured system. These representative grownups include the power hungry King happily giving orders; the businessman who grossly consumes the heavens: But, why? To get more. What do you do with more? Use it to get more of more. The little prince would say: grownups are very mysterious.
The fox is unique in knowledge about friendship. He's an outsider hunted by men. His persecution develops deep perceptions into the heart of life and relationships. This recording is a perfect stress buster for living in a world with grownups. Don the earphones, listen to the gentle, intelligent voice of St. Ex and hear what is truly essential.
