You can also open it at any page citdela read. It is not a novel. The original version is structured in chapters that are from just a paragraph to a couple of pages long.
The chapters are philosophical notes of the author about life and humanity. He envisions a city that he rules over and he speaks with his people and generals about the way to rule over it.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry: Prince, who built the Citadel
He speaks with the architects about the way to build it, and he thinks of every detail to make it better to live in. Every chapter is a little gem of knowledge. There are books that you can extract a couple of quotes, from this one you have to paste it all. It is made out of quotes. Every paragraph is just beautiful, metaphors everywhere and great reasoning throughout. But if you would have them hate each other, throw them corn. Poetry and philosophy in prose form. A challenging read but highly recommended!
PPS If you’re among many others who loved “Little Prince” and want to read something else by the author, I ‘d recommend you to start with “Wind, sand and stars” not with this one, that can exuprry a little overwhelming and way too different.

She is discovering the truth. But heed not these stirrings of revolt – for I shall ram them down their throats. My work is to found men. The prince leads his men to conquer an oasis: I said to my men: But you need only master them, clenching your exupsry in the blue-glinting tresses of their hair.
But gently need you ply your strength to hold them. True, they will keep their eyes shut so as not to see you, yet your silence will oppress them like an eagle’s shadow. Anon will they open their eyes upon you, and you will fill them with tears You will have edupery their vision of the vastness of the world: No matter if the man be but a humble stonebreaker: No matter, likewise, if the surgeon be most eminent. For herein is no question of paying tribute to mediocrity, but of repairing the damaged vehicle.
And both have the same driver. Thus it is with those who minister to the woman with child. Above all for the sake of that new life which the woman in her pangs and vomitings is serving; nor need the woman render thanks, save on her son’s behalf. Yet we find women today demanding help, as if this were their due, on the score of their vomitings and pangs.
If the women alone were in question I would away with them, so ugly are their vomitings. The only thing in them that has importance is the new life that they are serving; exupert are they entitled to render thanks on their own behalf, since those who nurse them and they themselves are but the servitors of birth.
Such gratitude were meaningless” And that’s when I stopped reading in disgust.

The beginning charmed me, because it cjtadela eloquent and because I disagreed with what it was saying.
It was like Nietzsche, Plato, and Machiavelli decided to collaborate on a book: Then it grew offensive. Really I have seldom seen such unapologetic fetishization of rape, such blatant disdain disguised of course as compassion for the Common Man whatever Very rarely do I not finish a book, but after of its pages I’m putting this one down. Really I have seldom seen such unapologetic fetishization of rape, such blatant disdain disguised of course as compassion for the Common Man whatever that means.
As for the parts about women–I’m not even going to repeat them. Then, finally, it just stopped saying anything. Attempts at arguments or anecdotes kept devolving into nonsensical strings of sound bytes that I would have thought “deep” at, like, the age of twelve.
And of what worth are convictions that bring not suffering? Worse, these little quotables kept contradicting one another.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry – Wikipedia
First, “evil is it when that which has been made is once more in the making. Because there is no context. The whole thing seriously reminds me of a political campaign. My Romantic Poetry professor in college continually lamented the revisions Wordsworth made to the Prelude in his complacent old age, mourning the loss of difficulty, of pith, of doubt.
Having worshipped Le Petit Prince for years and then read this, I understand his frustration. Jul 16, Sergey Pustylnikov rated it it was amazing. I would have them be like the branch of the olive tree. That one which bides its time. Then they will feel within them, like the swirling gust which tests the tree, the impulse of God’s breath. And that he who questions is seeking, primarily, the abyss.
A I would have them be like the branch of the olive tree. And then begins the anguish of not-being. Far better for him were it to achieve his truth in the homely smell of blazing vine shoots, or of the sheep he has to shear. Truth strikes deep, like a well. A gaze that wanders loses sight of God. Jun 10, Michel rated it it was amazing Recommended to Michel by: You know about that one proverbial book you would take with you on a desert island? Citadelle is it for me. Possibly because it’s unfinished, and some parts are told several times, so you spend a lot of time choosing one iteration over another, and then changing your mind.
Feels like a dialogue with the reader, about maybe the most important subject for us humans: Tentative, interactive and ambiguous. Aug 16, Beringas rated it liked it.
