Biography of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry shows that he was in search for God

2012-12-15

ENZO ROMEO
Author, L'Invisibile Bellezza
 "He liked to travel. The decision to be a pilot, spending 6500 hours inside a plane, deep down reflected his search. It showed his desire to fly and see the world from a point of view he could understand it all. He wanted to go to a higher dimension.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was born in 1900 in Lyon to an aristocratic family. He always dreamed of being a pilot and writer. He fell in love in 1930 with a Salvadoran woman, Consuelo Suncin. She was the inspiration behind the prince's fragile rose in the story.

Consuelo had to flee France, following the Nazi invasion. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry swore his love to her. He promised her that if he survived the war, they would travel to Lourdes to give thanks to God, and so they did.

Enzo Romeo shows in the book the more spiritual part of Saint-Exupéry, using his letters, his work and his very few interviews.

 "We discovered, for example, that Saint-Exupéry was a great fanatic of Gregorian choirs. He would always say that when he finished flying and traveling the world, he would retire at the Solesmes' Benedictine monastery, one of the most famous in France.”

Pilot, dreamer and writer, his work was full of symbolism. The desert is constant theme in his books, and it is also autobiographical. In 1935, his plane crashed in the Sahara desert. He went several days without drinking water, until a Bedouin man saved him. Enzo Romeo explained that the desert is like Heaven for Saint-Exupéry: a man in search of transcendence, an invisible beauty he depicted in his work.
