Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry first published The Little Prince in 1943, only a year before his Lockheed P-38 vanished over the Mediterranean during a reconnaissance mission. More than a half century later, this fable of love and loneliness has lost none of its power. The narrator is a downed pilot in the Sahara Desert, frantically trying to repair his wrecked plane. His efforts are interrupted one day by the apparition of a little, well, prince, who asks him to draw a sheep. "In the face of an overpowering mystery, you don't dare disobey," the narrator recalls. "Absurd as it seemed, a thousand miles from all inhabited regions and in danger of death, I took a scrap of paper and a pen out of my pocket." And so begins their dialogue, which stretches the narrator's imagination in all sorts of surprising, childlike directions.

The Little Prince describes his journey from planet to planet, each tiny world populated by a single adult. It's a wonderfully inventive sequence, which evokes not only the great fairy tales but also such monuments of postmodern whimsy as Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities. And despite his tone of gentle bemusement, Saint-Exupéry pulls off some fine satiric touches, too. There's the king, for example, who commands the Little Prince to function as a one-man (or one-boy) judiciary:

I have good reason to believe that there is an old rat living somewhere on my planet. I hear him at night. You could judge that old rat. From time to time you will condemn him to death. That way his life will depend on your justice. But you'll pardon him each time for economy's sake. There's only one rat.
The author pokes similar fun at a businessman, a geographer, and a lamplighter, all of whom signify some futile aspect of adult existence. Yet his tale is ultimately a tender one--a heartfelt exposition of sadness and solitude, which never turns into Peter Pan-style treacle. Such delicacy of tone can present real headaches for a translator, and in her 1943 translation, Katherine Woods sometimes wandered off the mark, giving the text a slightly wooden or didactic accent. Happily, Richard Howard (who did a fine nip-and-tuck job on Stendhal's The Charterhouse of Parma in 1999) has streamlined and simplified to wonderful effect. The result is a new and improved version of an indestructible classic, which also restores the original artwork to full color. "Trying to be witty," we're told at one point, "leads to lying, more or less." But Saint-Exupéry's drawings offer a handy rebuttal: they're fresh, funny, and like the book itself, rigorously truthful. --James Marcus

2.0 out of 5 stars Do Not Buy For Kindle
By DanoN3t on June 14, 2018
This review is for the Kindle edition only.

If I had the opportunity to buy this again, I would not buy the Kindle edition and would instead buy the paperback. The Kindle edition had BADLY jumbled text where two to four lines would overlap on top of each other every few pages making sentences unreadable. This is not acceptable.

Also, you cannot adjust the font size for the Kindle edition.

Otherwise, the book itself was very interesting. I wish I knew what the jumbled sentences said.

The image attached is one small example of many.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Book
By BusyMama on July 8, 2021
PROS
The book is exactly as depicted in the description. Be sure to take the "look inside" tour on Amazon. Even without the dust cover the canvas cover is very pretty, and the gold star in the top right corner is ever so sweet. (The only distraction on the entire cover is the publisher logo "HMH" on the titled edge, see pic)

The very first and last pages appear to be matt paper and are great for writing a message to the recipient of this precious book. The rest of the pages are close to what I consider an eggshell finish, not matt, not super glossy, but just right.

There are several different editions of this book & after reviewing them all I decided on this simple classic version without the "background info" or the "pop-up" illsustrations. I have seen editions with more color in the illustrations but I personally prefer the illustrations in this book.

If you are only buying one edition I suggest you do a bit of research to determine your personal preference for translations & illustrations.

CONS
There was slight damage to some edges & the corners of the book.

As I researched different editions of this book I read about various translations. Sadly many critics have voiced that translations significantly impact some of the authors meaning and nuance (from what I have read this applies to all translations to date). Preference for translations vary widely so if you're picky, the only way to tell which you would personally prefer would be to read them all & decide for yourself. Some translations are out of print and would need to be purchased used.
