Le Devenir Et La Conscience Cosmique Chez Saint-Exupery
1995 0-7734-2912-3
This volume analyzes the work of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in light of an existential theory: the consciousness of the divine law of becoming that gives meaning to the human phenomena of living, suffering, dying. Arguing that Saint-Exupéry saw becoming as an ongoing upward spiral from human consciousness to divine consciousness, and positing that all of Saint-Exupéry's material was basically autobiographical, it examines his major works, with particular emphasis on Citadelle and, of course, The Little Prince. It includes a full chapter on the pictorial symbolism (the "forgotten language") of the drawings in The Little Prince. In French.
