Now a watchman from the heart of night he learnt how night betrays man's presence his voices lights and his unrest That star down there in the shadows alone; a lonely house Yonder a fading star; that house is closing in upon its love Or on its lassitude A house that has ceased to flash its signal to the world Gathered round their lamp lit table those peasants do not know the measure of their hopes; they do not guess that their desire carries so far out into the vastness of the night that hems them in But Fabien has met it on his path when coming from a thousand miles away he feels the heavy ground swell raise his panting plane and let it sink when he has crossed a dozen storms like lands at war between them neutral tracts of moonlight to reach at last those lights one following the other — and knows himself a conueror They think these peasants that their lamp shines only for that little table; but from fifty miles away some one has felt the summons of their light as though it were a desperate signal from some lonely island flashed by shipwrecked men toward the seaHe might keep up the struggle chance his luck; no destiny attacks us from outside But within him man bears his fate and there comes a moment when he knows himself vulnerable; and then as in a vertigo blunder upon blunder lures himAnd at this very moment there gleamed above his head across a storm rift like a fatal lure within a deep abyss a star or twoOnly too well he knew them for a trap A man sees a few stars at the issue of a pit and climbs toward them and then—never can he get down again but stays up there eternally chewing the stars But such was his lust for light that he began to climb

Em das suas montanhas Rivière responsável por toda a rede passeava dum lado para o outro no campo de aviação de Buenos Aires Permanecia silencioso pois até à chegada dos três aviões este dia para ele continuava a ser temív. Antoine de Saint Exupéry why did you die so young This of course is not his best it was only his second published work and it needed to be polished Yet he gave such beauty to his writing such an artist he was This piece of art deals with much else he wrote flight and airplanes And he uses such a simple thing to convey if long term goals and money are important than a human life and it is left to us to choose which side is our own while him making it seem he chooses human life Et Rivière à pas lents retourne à son travail parmi lessecrétaires ue courbe son regard dur Rivière le Grand Rivièrele Victorieuxui porte sa lourde victoire And Rivière slowly back to work among the Secretaries curved his hard gaze Rivière the Grand Rivièrele Victorious bringing his heavy victory MORE LIKE Rivière LE SCUM

Review on translation by Stuart Gilbert Looking for a particular translation of the Little Prince I found myself in the library Stacks section of old rarely checked out books There two other books by Saint Exupery do surnames like that still exist attracted me through their first lines I was entranced What exuisite writing And like the index of poetry each chapter of Night Flight is headed on a lead in page by its first line The book begins with Fabian the pilot silently observing Already beneath him through the golden evening the shadowed hills had dug their furrows and the plains grew luminous with long enduring light The mood is set Day is ending and night will soon settle in The calm before the storm Within two pages the story is shadowed with foreboding through thought description and word choiceWhy use dreadnought in a metaphor I had to look it up and it's uite likely the only word in the English language that refers to both a battleship and a large bodied acoustic guitar But then the word dread is used two or three times in the book Like reading poetry the text is clearly littered with words associated with literal darkness and the metaphorical dark areas of the human soul Each character is a solitary soldiering through the night set upon a mission to get the mail through The year is 1930 the planes are primitive the communication is the wireless telegram The heroes are the pilots at the mercy of both nature and the heirachy of the mail service namely the inspector and the commanding chief These two men are afflicted and absorbed by their professions in a sense blinded to the lives of the pilots This all sets up for a very melancholy yet beautifully written read A fantastic storm blankets the inner continent and Fabian in flight from Patagonia to Buenes Aires becomes lost Saint Exupery writes from experience and it shows He miraculousloy survived several crashes but flying was his love and he never returned from his last flight A rather creepy thing to know as you read this book It's almost as if he wrote it from the dead
