    Voltaire s novel introduces the reader to Candide, a wide eyed, calm and slightly bland young gentleman who resides at Castle Westphalia and who believes in the philosophy that everything in the world is for the best One of the first scenes is filled with two emotional opposites for Candide who first gets to kiss his love, Cunegonde behind a screen, only to then be kicked out of the c

    Candide is an accessible masterpiece which demonstrated to the world Volatire s genius as a satirist The eponymous Candide is a young man tutored by an optimist who is convinced according to the cause and effect philosophy of Leibniz and perhaps is best summarized in Voltaire s leitmotif that human beings live in the best of all possible worlds Alexander Pope rather laughably made the same out

    Slightly disappointed with the next Gabriel Garcia Marquez, I took on this classic in one sitting.J US Where has this one been all my life I adore Candide because it is rife with adventure, it is a speedy read, and at the very end you experience a vortex of feelings and NOVEL concepts It transcends literature itself.Compare this to Dante To Shakespeare I could not help but smile at all the awful misadv

    If this is the best of possible worlds, what then are the others If the world was created to drive us mad, as one character in Candide suggests, it is quite well suited for its purpose and running like a fine tuned machine If, on the other hand, everything is for the best in this best of possible worlds, as the optimist philosopher Pangloss claims in admiration for Leibniz idea of a benevolent, planning, organi

    panglossian adj characterized by or given to extreme optimism, especially in the face of unrelieved hardship or adversity. If an English word came from a book s character, that must be something If the book was written and first published in the 18th century and many people still read it up to now, that must be really something.I thought Voltaire s Candide was a difficult boring slow long read Wrong Exactly the opposite It s an

    Zounds This book is wildly entertaining and I giggled all the way through Candide s awful adventures Who would have thought that murder, rape, slavery, sexual exploitation, natural disaster, pillaging, theft, and every other oppression imaginable could be so funny Here s some pretty good insight from the old woman with one buttockI have been a hundred times upon the point of killing myself, but still I was fond of life This ridiculous we

    I loved Candide It is such a brilliant satire on the ideas observed through the glass of rosy eyed philosophyAll is for the best in the best of all possible worldsCandide, a young fellow, believes that whatever happens is for the best, courtesy his tutor Dr Pangloss The writing covers a number of unfavorable happenings and incidents, which should have been sufficient enough to let him abandon the colored glasses But voila Our man Candide is one o

    This is a truly hilarious satire which starts with poor Candide being kicked out of the castle where he was born and brought up, after he falls in love with the baron s daughter, Cunegonde Then his troubles begin, and he ends up travelling all around the world looking for his beloved.Candide experiences trial after trial, each one as bad and as far fetched as the last However, the way in which these trials were described did not make one feel too sorry fo
