Chaos, Cosmos, and Saint-Exupery’s Pilot

A Study in Mythopoeia

John Harris attempts to address Saint-Exupery’s unique qualities with full regard for his evasion of categories.  Harris contends that Saint-Exupery is, in fact, naively and perhaps sublimely simple. The apparent complexity in his works results from our own underestimation of his determination to fuse the aesthetic and the moral.
