Title Information


Title:
Candide
Annotation:
Voltaire's most famous work is a fascinating satire with elements that are contemporary even today. The adventures of a baron's illegitimate son, Candide, takes to task everything that controls the lives of men - religion, politics, love, science, and philosophy. All is expounded in the fateful travels of the protagonist in Europe and South America during the eighteenth century.
