Born in Lyon of France in 1900, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry considered himself primarily as a pilot. For 20 years he made numerous cartography and mailing missions for commercial companies. Air transmissions were the key factor concerning his professional and literature profile. He started writing The Little Prince during the WW II, when he was forced to abandon airforce (due to Germany’s invasion in France) and seek refuge in New York. His great desire of going back, hopefully after the war, is depicted as the nostalgia of being a child again, something that is so evident in Little Prince. The Sahara desert is the scenery of Little Prince’s story. The narrator’s plane has crashed there and he has scarcely some food and water to survive. Trying to comprehend what caused the crash, the Little Prince appears. The serious blonde little boy asks to draw him a sheep. The narrator consents to the strange fellow’s request. They soon become friends and the Little Prince informs the pilot that he is from a small planet, the asteroid 325, talks to him about the baobabs, his planet volcanoes and the mysterious rose that grew on his planet. He also talks to him about their friendship and the lie that evoked his journey to other planets. Often puzzled by the grown-ups’ behavior, the little traveler becomes a total and eternal symbol of innocence and love, of responsibility and devotion. Through him we get to see how insightful children are and how grown-ups aren’t. Children use their heart to feel what’s really important, not the eyes…

THE LITTLE PRINCE is French aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's most famous novella. It has been translated into more than 190 languages and sold more than 200 million copies, making it one of the bestselling books ever. The story, first published in 1943, is about a pilot who must make an emergency landing in the desert because of engine problems. This is ironic, since the author himself took off in a plane over the Mediterranean just a year later and was never seen or heard from again. This timeless story has been adapted to various media over the decades, including stage, screen and operatic works.

Traduzione di Fausta Cataldi Villari Edizioni integrali Per combattere la concorrenza dei mezzi di trasporto terrestri, bisognava volare di notte e, nei tempi eroici dell’aviazione, non era difficile rimetterci la vita. E allora perché Fabien ha accettato di alzarsi in volo, in condizioni estreme, sapendo che potrebbe essere l’ultima volta, mentre chi lo aspetta muore d’angoscia? Per amore del prossimo? Per senso del dovere? Certo, sono motivazioni che possono smuovere le montagne, ma ce n’è un’altra, ancora più forte, che ha spinto l’uomo ad andare sempre oltre i suoi limiti: la sfida a questi limiti, all’ignoto, al mai tentato prima. Saint-Exupéry racconta una storia di cui tante volte era stato protagonista, perché anche lui volava di notte per portare la posta, prima e durante la guerra. Ma non si sentiva un eroe, non pensava di sacrificarsi per gli altri: semplicemente, non poteva sottrarsi alla sfida. Accettarla e andare “oltre” aveva forse più valore della vita stessa. Vol de nuit, scritto nel 1931, ottenne il premio Femina nello stesso anno e rese celebre il suo autore. L’aviatore, del 1926, è il primo racconto di Antoine de Saint-Exupéry e racconta la storia di Jacques Bernis, divenuto pilota di aerei per sfuggire al grigiore della vita in provincia.Antoine de Saint-Exupéry(Lione, 29 giugno 1900 – mar Mediterraneo, 31 luglio 1944), è stato uno scrittore e aviatore francese. Oltre a Il Piccolo Principe, uno dei libri più letti e amati nel mondo, è anche autore di Volo di notte e L’aviatore pubblicati in volume unico da Newton Compton editori.

Cura e traduzione di Riccardo Reim Edizione integrale Una bizzarra coincidenza, una prodigiosa rassomiglianza, uno scambio di vestiti fatto per gioco da due ragazzi... Su tali semplici elementi è costruito questo celebre libro di Mark Twain, che attinge a un motivo ricorrente della narrativa universale: lo scambio di ruoli. È quanto fanno Edward, erede al trono d’Inghilterra, e il piccolo vagabondo Tom Canty, rischiando, senza volere, di non poter più tornare indietro, vittime di loschi trafficanti o di funzionari ottusi. Tom e Edward (il futuro Edoardo VI, figlio di Enrico VIII, che passerà alla storia come uno dei sovrani più illuminati) vivranno innumerevoli avventure, e quindi la “favola con morale” troverà il suo lieto fine. Twain conduce la narrazione con grande perizia e con il suo consueto humour, nonché con una salutare dose di antidoto democratico alle romantiche idealizzazioni di un passato che l’America aveva abiurato.Mark Twainpseudonimo di Samuel Langhorne Clemens, nacque a Florida (Missouri) nel 1835. Ex tipografo ed ex battelliere, scrisse, dopo la guerra civile, i suoi capolavori, legati alla stagione dell’infanzia e al paesaggio del Mississippi: Le avventure di Tom Sawyer (1876) e Le avventure di Huckleberry Finn (1884), entrambi pubblicati dalla Newton Compton. Morì a Redding nel 1910.

One late-winter morning, a young man is cycling downhill to primary school when he encounters a peculiar man - as big as a mountain and as filthy as a garbage dump. After a brief conversation this earthy apparition endows him with a gift: an internal clock that allows him to see into the future and exist in the present at the same time. The young man becomes Timeskipper, seeing and forseeing the epochal events of his era, from postwar reconstruction to the birth of television. These events are tenderly offset by his own personal experiences - love, jobs and adventures.
