ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPÉRY (1900-1944). Intensément impliqué dans les premières années de l´aviation commerciale, ses romans sont intimement liés à ses expériences en tant que pilote. Employé par la compagnie Latécoère, il s´en chargera du courrier de Toulouse au Sénégal, parcours qui se prolongera jusqu´en Amérique du Sud en 1929. À partir de 1932, il se consacrera à l´écriture et au journalisme, ce qui l´amènera au Vietnam, à Moscou et à l´Espagne de la guerre civile. Pendant la deuxième Guerre Mondiale, il deviendra l´une des voix de la Résistance et à New-York il essaiera de faire entrer les américains dans le conflit. Au printemps 44, il rejoindra une patrouille de reconnaissance basé en Sardaigne, puis en Corse, et le 31 juillet de cette année son avion disparaîtra en mer et ne sera retrouvé qu´en 2000. « Terre des hommes » (1939). Il s´agit d´une œuvre autobiographique dans laquelle Saint-Exupéry évoque un certain nombre d´incidences qui remontent à l´époque où el travaillait comme pilote de l´Aéropostale, notamment l´accident survenu en 1935 dans le désert de la Libye, au cours duquel il avait frôlé la mort avec son navigateur André Prévost.
