Candide: or Optimism - livre d'occasion

ISBN: 0300119879

ID: 5064235

In this new translation of Voltaire’s Candide, distinguished translator Burton Raffel captures the French novel’s irreverent spirit and offers a vivid, contemporary version of the 250-year-old text. Raffel casts the novel in an English idiom that--had Voltaire been a twenty-first-century American--he might himself have employed. The translation is immediate and unencumbered, and for the first time makes Voltaire the satirist a wicked pleasure for English-speaking readers.Candide recounts the fantastically improbable travels, adventures, and misfortunes of the young Candide, his beloved Cunégonde, and his devoutly optimistic tutor, Pangloss. Endowed at the start with good fortune and every prospect for happiness and success, the characters nevertheless encounter every conceivable misfortune. Voltaire’s philosophical tale, in part an ironic attack on the optimistic thinking of such figures as G. W. Leibniz and Alexander Pope, has proved enormously influential over the years. In a general introduction to this volume, historian Johnson Kent Wright places Candide in the contexts of Voltaire’s life and work and the Age of Enlightenment. civil rights,civil rights and liberties,classics,contemporary,education and reference,fiction,foreign language,foreign language dictionaries and thesauruses,foreign language fiction,foreign language learning Civil Rights, Yale University Press

Auteur:

Voltaire

Titre:

Candide: Or Optimism

ISBN:

In this new translation of Voltaire's best-known work, distinguished translator Burton Raffel captures the irreverent spirit of "Candide "and" "renders the novel in clear, vivacious English. Stylistically superior to all predecessors, Raffel's version now stands as the translation of choice for twenty-first-century readers. "ÝÄ fine new translation."--Adam Gopnik, "New Yorker" "Burton Raffel's excellent translations of a wide variety of texts are rightly admired, and so will this one be. Thanks be, he possesses the wit necessary to take us on and along the satirical road of Voltaire's "Candide.""--Mary Ann Caws, editor of "The Yale Anthology of Twentieth-Century French Poetry"
