SUMMARY

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) Candideis 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,Candidehas become Voltaire's most celebrated work.Voltaire, Francois is the author of 'Candide and Other Stories', published 1992 under ISBN 9780679417460 and ISBN 067941746X.
