Le désert allégorique chez Antoine de Saint-Exupéry



AbstractThe endless golden desert, to Saint-Exupéry, is more than a background of his physical experience but a door to a mental world where the dimension of time is eliminated and where the sharp comparisons are highlighted: narrowness and broadness, poverty and wealth, tranquility and noisiness, etc. Under the disguise of the bare surface are buried treasures and springs in the deep desert. It is a metaphor inspiring people to have an in-depth understanding of their own inner mind where real hopes and fortune can be found.

Key words: Desert; Human

RésuméChez Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, L’immensité des sables d’or ne se limite pas au décor de ses expériences réelles, elle ressemble à une porte ouverte qui révèle au pilote un monde spiritualisé. Il est intemporel en revêtant les contrastes remarquables: clos et étendu; stérile et riche; silencieux et animé; sous l’écorce dénué se cachent les trésors et la fontaine. Le désert plein de sens allégoriques débouche sur une prise de conscience, de la vraie richesse, de l’espoir et de l’homme lui-même.
