Abus de pouvoir, haines politiques et religieuses, préjugés nationaux: à travers la figure d'un Huron franco-anglais débarqué à Saint-Malo en 1689, Voltaire, dans L'Ingénu, met à distance la France de Louis XIV, et poursuit sa campagne contre l'infâme. Initié aux rites catholiques et aux usages du monde, l'Ingénu tombe amoureux de la belle Saint-Yves, avant d'être propulsé à la cour du roi, puis emprisonné à la Bastille, où il découvre le salut par le savoir. Au terme de ce parcours, il deviendra "philosophe intrépide" modèle de l'homme des Lumières... Paru en 1767, L'Ingénu, conte satirique et roman pathétique tout à la fois, est, avec Candide, l'un des chefs-d'œuvre du récit voltairien.
