You are invited to the discussion on the topic of “Environment, the future of the Earth and humans through the works of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry”, on the occasion of publishing the Vietnamese version of the book “Courrier sud” (Southern mail) by author-pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The event has the participation of:
– PhD. Nguyen Thuy Linh (University of Social Sciences & Humanities)
– Critic Pham Xuan Nguyen
In the late 1920s, after some times of being a pilot, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry started publishing his works describing his flying experiences, his observations when looking down on Earth from above. The world-famous author of “The Little Prince” is not simply a storyteller with a poetic, imaginative and humaine style but also a “prophet” with his thoughts on environment, on the future of the Earth and of humans.
“Courrier sud” is both an autobiography of a pilot and a poetic documentary on heroism and the loneliness that accompanied the pilot during each flight.
