From the Publisher

"Candide" is the story of a gentle man who, though pummeled and slapped in every direction by fate, clings desperately to the belief that he lives in "the best of all possible worlds." On the surface a witty, bantering tale, this eighteenth-century classic is actually a savage, satiric thrust at the philosophical optimism that proclaims that all disaster and human suffering is part of a benevolent cosmic plan. Fast, funny, often outrageous, the French philosopher''s immortal narrative takes Candide around the world to discover that -- contrary to the teachings of his distringuished tutor Dr. Pangloss -- all is not always for the best. Alive with wit, brilliance, and graceful storytelling, "Candide" has become Voltaire''s most celebrated work.

Candide, Or Optimism

Candide, Or Optimism

by Francois Marie Arouet De Voltaire

Availability: Ships within 1 week

Condition:

Format: Mass Market Paperback

Publisher: Penguin Books

Seller Comments:

8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. A PENGUIN CLASSIC BOOK. 144 pages. Notes and Appendices. A novel by the French Enlightenment writer, essayist and philosopher. Voltaire never openly admitted to having written the controversial novel [CANDIDE, OU L'OPTIMISME]--a satire of Gottfried Leibniz's philosophy and a showcase of the horrors of the 18th century world. Translated from the French by John Butt. A good utilitarian copy in wrappers. Moderate wear on its corners, edges and folds. Moderate abrasion on the upper right quad of the front cover. Significant tanning on its edges. The text is, however, clean and sound. Few reading creases on its spine.
