Candide: Or Optimism (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition) - Livres de poche

2007, ISBN: 0143039423

[SR: 199220], Paperback, [EAN: 9780143039426], Deckle Edge, Penguin Classics, Penguin Classics, Book, [PU: Penguin Classics], 2005-10-25, Penguin Classics, A deluxe edition of Voltaires satirical masterpiece with cover art by Chris Ware With its vibrant new translation perceptive introduction and witty packaging this new edition of Voltaires 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 For more than sixty-five years Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world With more than 1 500 titles Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators, Political satire doesn't age well, but occasionally a diatribe contains enough art and universal mirth to survive long after its timeliness has passed. Candide is such a book. Penned by that Renaissance man of the Enlightenment, Voltaire, Candide is steeped in the political and philosophical controversies of the 1750s. But for the general reader, the novel's driving principle is clear enough: the idea (endemic in Voltaire's day) that we live in the best of all possible worlds, and apparent folly, misery and strife are actually harbingers of a greater good we cannot perceive, is hogwash. Telling the tale of the good-natured but star-crossed Candide (think Mr. Magoo armed with deadly force), as he travels the world struggling to be reunited with his love, Lady Cunegonde, the novel smashes such ill-conceived optimism to splinters. Candide's tutor, Dr. Pangloss, is steadfast in his philosophical good cheer, in the face of more and more fantastic misfortune; Candide's other companions always supply good sense in the nick of time. Still, as he demolishes optimism, Voltaire pays tribute to human resilience, and in doing so gives the book a pleasant indomitability common to farce. Says one character, a princess turned one-buttocked hag by unkind Fate: "I have wanted to kill myself a hundred times, but somehow I am still in love with life. This ridiculous weakness is perhaps one of our most melancholy propensities; for is there anything more stupid than to be eager to go on carrying a burden which one would gladly throw away, to loathe one's very being and yet to hold it fast, to fondle the snake that devours us until it has eaten our hearts away?"--Michael Gerber, 2205888011, Custom Stores, 7187330011, Amazon Publishing, 16256501011, Audible Audiobooks, 13901671, Audiobooks, 14244971, Bargain Books, 13621591, Boxed Sets, 194725011, Canada Day Deals, 377366011, Christian Living Store, 263003011, For Dummies Store, 2354164011, Formats, 714830011, Kids & Family Store, 370821011, Qualifying Textbooks - Fall 2007, 1040638, Specialty Stores, 916520, Books, 941608, Satire, 941572, Humour, 941378, Humour & Entertainment, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 932108, Classics, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 932506, Family Saga, 932470, Genre Fiction, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 930318, French, 16144510011, European, 927792, World Literature, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 2056047011, Literary, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 15306451, Literature, 15306521, American Literature, 15306461, Creative Writing & Composition, 15306531, English Literature, 15306511, Literary Theory, 690380011, World Literature, 15306041, Humanities, 15115321, Textbooks, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 15306311, Philosophy, 15306321, Aesthetics, 690377011, Epistemology, 15306331, Ethics, 15306341, History & Surveys, 690378011, Logic, 15306361, Metaphysics, 15306041, Humanities, 15115321, Textbooks, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 930044, Consciousness & Thought, 930040, Philosophy, 5489589011, Politics & Social Sciences, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books
