Voltaire was one of the key figures of the French Enlightenment. The foremost epic poet, playwright, novelist and satirist of his age, he was also a forthright and vastly influential campaigner for social justice and progressive thinking, producing countless pamphlets, articles, books and letters, landing him in jail and exile. This selection is taken mainly from his prose non-fiction, but includes some letters. In addition to the texts, this book contains recent Voltaire scholarship in an introduction, a bibiliography, selected criticism and chronologies of Voltaire's life and times.

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
