Title: Candide, or, Optimism Contributors: Voltaire, Gita May, Henry Morley, Lauren Walsh, Publisher: Barnes & Noble Published:

The Baron's lady weighed about three hundred and fifty pounds, and was therefore a person of great consideration, and she did the honours of the house with a dignity that commanded still greater respect.

Her daughter Cunegonde was seventeen years of age, fresh—coloured, comely, plump, and desirable. The Baron's son seemed to be in every respect worthy of his father. The Preceptor Pangloss was the oracle of the family, and little Candide heard his lessons with all the good faith of his age and character. Pangloss was professor of metaphysico—theologico—cosmolo—nigology. He proved admirably that there is no effect without a cause, and that, in this best of all possible worlds, the Baron's castle was the most magnificent of castles, and his lady the best of all possible Baronesses.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Voltaire had an interesting and sometimes tumultuous relation with "The Church" and religious thought of his time.

In Candide, he takes great pains to ridicule the writings of both Milton and Alexander Pope, more specifically the latter in An Essay on Man, in which both writers attempt to "vindicate the ways of God to man".

To understand this, or better, to have read these writings will further illuminate what Voltaire is attempting in Candide. Candide is the protagonist and is a seemingly good-hearted but rather simple fellow whose mentor, Pangloss, teaches him that no matter what happens it is always for the best.

As a note, pay attention to each of the main characters names as they seem to me to have a descriptive quality to them, e. Pan, meaning "all" and gloss from the Greek glossa, meaning tongue, to get a name that roughly means "all talk". The story begins with Candide and his love interest being suddenly separated and the events of his life from there. What follows in the story is a series of horrible events mixed with some virtuous ones that Pangloss continuously explains to Candide that whatever happens is for the best.

Even if you have no philosophical interest, the book is both funny and sad, entertaining yet thought provoking with a couple of memorable passages.

Candide by Voltaire

I consider it a pretty good read and, as a bonus, a quick one. Due to difficulties in posting this review, until it is completely updated the full text of the review, with links, can be found in the comments section directly below. I apologize for this but have been having an unusually difficult time in getting this review to post.

This note will be removed once the review is finalized and posted in final form. This review will address the newly issued Kindle edition of Candide that has been released by Open Road Media as well as give an overview of editions of Candide available for the Kindle and available on Amazon. Many Kindle versions of well-known classic books are available.

For books available in the public domain, as is the case for Candide, oftentimes these Kindle versions are available for free or for very low price. Some of these Kindle editions are of low quality and have various issues that make them less desirable for those who like to read classics on their Kindles. When I am looking for a classic book to purchase for my Kindle, it is usually a minor research project to determine which one I think will be the 'best' for my reading, and sometimes I end up purchasing more than one version in order to get one that is well presented and formatted for the Kindle.

This is a relatively short book, normally about pages in printed form, and not a difficult read. This Kindle edition is well produced, the publishers website claims that it has been professionally proofread, and I have detected no errors myself such as often appear in Kindle books which have been scanned and published without careful check.

This Open Road Media version of Candide appears to be the most common version offered on Kindle and uses the translation by Philip Little see note below which was originally published by Modern Library in and is public domain and readily available online see for example Project Gutenberg link below.

It includes the following: Micromegas, Philosophical History Voltaire.

Philosophical Dictionary Voltaire. Flatland Edwin A. Cobwebs from an Empty Skull Ambrose Bierce.

In a castle of Westphalia, belonging to the Baron of Thunder—ten—Tronckh, lived a youth, whom nature had endowed with the most gentle manners. His countenance was a true picture of his soul. He combined a true judgment with simplicity of spirit, which was the reason, I apprehend, of his being called Candide. The old servants of the family suspected him to have been the son of the Baron's sister, by a good, honest gentleman of the neighborhood, whom that young lady would never marry because he had been able to prove only seventy—one quarterings, the rest of his genealogical tree having been lost through the injuries of time.

The Baron was one of the most powerful lords in Westphalia, for his castle had not only a gate, but windows. His great hall, even, was hung with tapestry. All the dogs of his farm—yards formed a pack of hounds at need; his grooms were his huntsmen; and the curate of the village was his grand almoner. They called him "My Lord," and laughed at all his stories.

The Baron's lady weighed about three hundred and fifty pounds, and was therefore a person of great consideration, and she did the honours of the house with a dignity that commanded still greater respect.

I found it to be not only instructive, nut enlightening, with a message that applies to the modern world as well. Despite the mutual affection, it is this love that triggers his subsequent misfortune, after the Baron discovers the pair kissing and Candide is immediately thrown out of the castle and left to fend for himself in the not so idyllic world.

Martin's Paperback in English. Candide , Modern Library. Product details Series: Baron Thunder—ten—Tronckh passed near the screen and beholding this cause and effect chased Candide from the castle with great kicks on the backside; Cunegonde fainted away; she was boxed on the ears by the Baroness, as soon as she came to herself; and all was consternation in this most magnificent and most agreeable of all possible castles.

Are you sure you want to remove Candide from your list? Candide is characterized by its tone as well as by its erratic, fantastical, and fast-moving plot.
