Biography

“Voltaire”

“François-Marie Arouet, known as Voltaire (1694-1778), is at the head of a real philosophical movement that radiates throughout Europe. His work dominates the production of the century. Voltaire tries with various successes to all literary genres: theater, dialogues, historical works, novels and tales (Zadig, Candide, L’Ingénu, Micromegas), poetry, essays, scientific and cultural articles, texts of literary criticism, pamphlets. A huge letter-writer, he will write more than 20,000 letters … His work bears witness to the struggle of a life against lies and imposture, illusion and stupidity.

“Men are insects devouring each other on a small atom of mud.” Who exactly is Voltaire (1694-1778)? Is he first of all the defender of the Calas, Sirven, La Barre, that is to say the apostle of tolerance, the one whose name, even today, mobilizes crowds all over the planet? Is it especially, with his Century of Louis XIV and his Essay on manners and the spirit of nations, the promoter of a new writing of History? Should we consider him the greatest tragedian of his age, the equal, in his time, of Racine and Corneille? Can we forget that he was an outstanding financier, even a real businessman? Was not he consecrated, at the end of his life, lord of the village? And who else but himself became, in the Age of Enlightenment, the icon of an entire people? It is from this man, and from this people, that this is the question.”

Description : Voltaire’s masterpiece of satire Candide was written between July and December 1758 and published simultaneously in Geneva, Paris and Amsterdam in January 1759. The events in the book unlike most works of fiction are astutely based on the current state of Voltaire’s contemporary world and culled from the headlines of his day. No major power center was omitted. Arbiters of social status, sex/love, money, war and religion were all lambasted within the pages of Candide.

Description : Candide By Voltaire - A French Satire - COMPLETE EDITION - CLASSIC LITERATURE - Candide, ou l'Optimisme, is a French satire first published in 1759 by Voltaire, a philosopher of the Age of Enlightenment. The novella has been widely translated, with English versions titled Candide: or, All for the Best (1759); Candide: or, The Optimist (1762); and Candide: or, Optimism (1947). It begins with a young man, Candide, who is living a sheltered life in an Edenic paradise and being indoctrinated with Leibnizian optimism (or simply Optimism) by his mentor, Pangloss. The work describes the abrupt cessation of this lifestyle, followed by Candide's slow, painful disillusionment as he witnesses and experiences great hardships in the world. Voltaire concludes with Candide, if not rejecting optimism outright, advocating a deeply practical precept, "we must cultivate our garden", in lieu of the Leibnizian mantra of Pangloss, "all is for the best in the best of all possible worlds". Candide is characterised by its sarcastic tone, as well as by its erratic, fantastical and fast-moving plot. A picaresque novel with a story similar to that of a more serious bildungsroman, it parodies many adventure and romance clichés, the struggles of which are caricatured in a tone that is mordantly matter-of-fact. Still, the events discussed are often based on historical happenings, such as the Seven Years' War and the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. As philosophers of Voltaire's day contended with the problem of evil, so too does Candide in this short novel, albeit more directly and humorously. Voltaire ridicules religion, theologians, governments, armies, philosophies, and philosophers through allegory; most conspicuously, he assaults Leibniz and his optimism.

Description : A central story of contemporary southern politics is the emergence of Republican majorities in the region's congressional delegation. Acknowledging the significance and scope of the political change, James M. Glaser argues that, nevertheless, strands of continuity affect the practice of campaign politics in important ways. Strong southern tradition underlies the strategies pursued by the candidates, their presentational styles, and the psychology of their campaigns. The author offers eyewitness accounts of recent congressional campaigns in Texas, Mississippi, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. In the tradition of his award-winning book Race, Campaign Politics, and the Realignment in the South, Glaser captures the stuff of politics - the characters, the images, the rhetoric, and the scenery. Painting a full and fascinating picture of what it is like on the campaign trail, Glaser provides wide-ranging insights into the ways that the hand of the past reaches into the southern present.

Description : 'The prince of philosophical novels' John Updike In Candide, Voltaire threw down an audacious challenge to the philosophical views of the Enlightenment to create one of the most glorious satires of the eighteenth century. His eponymous hero is an innocent young man whose tutor, Pangloss, has instilled in him the belief that 'all is for the best'. But when his love for the Baron's rosy-cheeked daughter is discovered, Candide is cast out to make his own fortune. As he and his various companions roam over the world, an outrageous series of disasters - earthquakes, syphilis, the Inquisition - sorely test the young hero's optimism, holding a mirror up to all fanatics, zealots and moral reformers of humankind.

Description : The true triumph of reason is that it enables us to get along with those who do not possess it. - Voltaire. Francois Marie Arouet de Voltaire, known simply as Voltaire (1694-1778), has practically become synonymous with the Enlightenment. Voltaire was a prodigious writer, producing thousands of works about history, poetry, science and politics, and he is today celebrated as Frances greatest writer and satirist. His advocacy of freedom of religion and his critiques of religious and governmental authorities made him one of the most famous men of his day, and his influence on Americas Founding Fathers is obvious. The Enlightenments challenge to religious and governmental authorities was not without its risks, given that Europe and the American colonies were ruled by powerful monarchs in Britain and France. Voltaire himself wrote, It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong. Indeed, when some Enlightenment dared to mock or challenge authority, they were forced to flee their countries to avoid being imprisoned. The list of Enlightenment thinkers who spent time in exile include John Locke, Voltaire, Rousseau, and Guillaume-Thomas Raynal. Perhaps its not surprising when Voltaire wrote things like Christianity is the most ridiculous, the most absurd, and bloody religion that has ever infected the world. Voltaires most famous work was Candide, featuring a young man named Candide who lives a sheltered life in paradise being indoctrinated by his optimist mentor, Pangloss. Candide quits the lifestyle, becoming gradually disillusioned with the world as he sees others hardships. Candide is humorous and sarcastic, satirizing events like the Seven Years War and the Lisbon Earthquake in 1755. Candide ridicules religion, theologians, governments, the military, philosophies, and philosophers like Leibniz. Candide is widely acknowledged as one of the most important works in the West.
