Author: George C. Papageorgiou
The Little Prince beckons us to take a fairy tale trip, into the worlds of love, of romance, of sacrifice and dependability. Still, he would not be as meaningful apart from his author with whom he forms a twin, his real alter ego. In order to "unlock" the Little Prince and understand him deeply, we must first come to know his father and creator, Antoine de Saint Exupery, a charismatic-and at the same time tragic human being.
Through the fiction-like life and work of Saint Exupery we will travel to France at the dawn of the 20th century, experience the birth and heroic epoch of aviation, two destructive world wars, revolutions and discoveries that radically changed the world, and finally, his supreme dedication to duty and sacrifice for the country and his civilization's ideals. Ideals and sense of duty that permeate the entire opus of Saint Exupery and The Little Prince.
Dr. George Papageoriou is born in Patras, Greece. He studied Medicine in Greece, U.K. and France and he is an Emeritus Professor of Surgery.
