Candide

or Optimism

annotated ed

€ 17.95

With its vibrant new translation, perceptive introduction, and witty packaging, this new edition of Voltaire's masterpiece belongs in the hands of every reader pondering our assumptions about human behavior and our place in the world. "Candide" tells of the hilarious adventures of the naive Candide, who doggedly believes that "all is for the best" even when faced with injustice, suffering, and despair. Controversial and entertaining, "Candide" is a book that is vitally relevant today in our world pervaded by - as Candide would say - "the mania for insisting that all is well when all is by no means well."
