NEW! The Little Prince and World War II
6 sessions, 12 hours
Examine the French Resistance during World War II through the text of Antoine de St. Exupery’s “The Little Prince.” Students will read St. Exupery’s world renowned literary work and examine the events in the author’s life that preceded his work. The novel is filled with philosophical ideas, such as the wisdom from the fox, “that which is essential is invisible to the eyes.” These and other ideas will be explored and discussed as students learn how the author’s reaction to the invasion of his beloved France became the impetus for his literary work.
Please Note: To get the best experience out of this class students should bring a copy of the book to class; book can be purchased on-line or from most bookstores.
