'One of the 100 Most Influential Books Ever Written' Martin Seymour-Smith ; Literary Critic and PoetCandide is a French satire first published in 1759 by Voltaire, a philosopher of the Age of Enlightenment.It begins with a young man, Candide, who is living a sheltered life in an Edenic paradise and being indoctrinated with Leibnizian optimism by his mentor, Professor Pangloss. Candide parodies many adventure and romance clichés, the struggles of which are caricatured in a tone that is bitter and matter-of-fact. Voltaire ridicules religion, theologians, governments, armies, philosophies, and philosophers. Through Candide, he assaults Leibniz and his optimism.With its sharp wit and insightful portrayal of the human condition, the novel has since inspired many later authors and artists to mimic and adapt it. Today, Candide is recognized as Voltaire’s magnum opus and is often listed as part of the Western canon.A Must Read that Belongs on Every Bookshelf!
