Living in a world full of chaos and worries, people have gradually disregarded emotions and pursued a pragmatic lifestyle. They almost forget about their dreams of their childhood but always force themselves to grow up faster. Now, we have the opportunity to remember our childhood dreams through the gentle but extremely attractive words of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry with the famous novel “The Little Prince”.
The story begins with the unexpected meeting of a crashed pilot and a boy from another planet. The boy told about his adventures on the planets and about the rose on his planet. He was disappointed when he found out that his rose was not as unique as he thought it would be.Then he met a fox, it advised him to love my rose and find the meaning of him life. The Little Prince live in a small planet named B612, There are three volcanoes and a rose. He takes care of his asteroid every day and loves it dearly. One day, the Little Prince left his planet to explore several other planets, each inhabited by an adult who is considered odd in his understanding, If adults see children as naive and stupid, children find adults confusing and complicated. “Adults never understand anything on their own, and children are always, always have to explain to you”.
Each adult represent for a type of a person and an “adult” personality in our life, there is a king who always follow the rules, a braggat who listens nothing but compliments, an alcoholic only drinks because he feel ashamed of being drunk, a bussinessmen who always busy counting stars that he assume his, a lamb lighter who sticks to his orders, a georapher who never leave his planet but only drawing maps. we laughed at the stupidity of those strange people and then suddenly realized why it looked so familiar. It can be said that the Little Prince is a subtle yet profound reminder. People are so complicated. It seems that these “odd” people all have their own characteristics of today’s society. Only when Little Prince going through those planets to understand what our actions and thoughts are like. Resentment, lack of sympathy and attachment only make people separate. From there, the work expresses the meaning of existence, the desire for people with more open hearts.
