The Little Prince Chapter 12 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
On the next planet, the little prince encounters a tippler, who sits before a collection of empty and full bottles. He tells the little prince that he is drinking to forget that he is ashamed of drinking, and the little prince travels on, puzzled.
As with the other grownups the little prince meets, the tippler exercises faulty, circular logic that serves only to conceal the truth, and to reveal the way that grownups deceive themselves rather than create true connections with others.
