Édition présentée et commentée par Pierre Malandain, professeur de littérature française à l'université de Lille III. Dans un château de Westphalie, élevé dans le meilleur des mondes possibles par son vénéré maître Pangloss, Candide cultive l'illusion du bonheur. Mais son imprudence envers l'appétissante Cunégonde le chasse de ce paradis terrestre. Les pires aventures l'attendent, de Lisbonne en Eldorado et de Venise en Constantinople, sur cette terre où triomphe le Mal. La nature suscite des catastrophes meurtrières, la sottise, le vice et le fanatisme gouvernent les hommes. Partout, la ruse et la force gagnent toujours aux dépens des faibles et des naïfs. Comment, dans cette jungle déchaînée, s'accommoder de la misérable condition humaine, apprendre la tolérance et les bienfaits du travail ? Comment trouver la paix du cœur et l'amour de la liberté ? Voltaire nous interroge... Lire avec le texte intégral et la préface présentant l'œuvre et son auteur. Comprendre avec " Les clés de l'œuvre " : 20 pages pour aller à l'essentiel ; 135 pages pour approfondir.
