Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Date of Birth:





Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was born in Lyons on June 29, 1900 studied in Jesuit schools in France and Switzerland. He was a poor and uncontrollable student but had a keen interest in a rapidly growing aviation science. In 1921 he joined the army and learned to fly, and in time he was drafted into the army. After three years in business, Saint-Exupéry became a pilot in 1926, the primary time flying from France to Morocco and geographical area. Based on his experience he has drawn a novel that began his writing career in 1929, Cortrier Sud (Southern mail). Here he expresses the driver's sole struggle against the elements and the sense of surrender to his calling, with power and even love. In 1929 Saint-Exupéry was sent to Buenos Aires, and married in 1931. The identical year he published his second book, Vol de nuit (Night Flight). In the following years Santa-Exupéry pursued his flying career, despite numerous injuries, but did not publish books until 1939, when he released the Terre des hommes. In 1939 Saint-Exupéry joined the French air force and was bravely decorated in 1940. He traveled to the United States,and then wrote Pilote de guerre (Flight to Arras) published in 1942 after the defeat of France. On July 31, 1944, his plane disappeared near Corsica, almost shot down by a German warship; no trace was ever found.
