About this title

Synopsis:

Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pomona Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

From the Back Cover:

Contemporarily regarded as the French genius of the Enlightenment, Voltaire (1694-1778) was committed to the Bastille in 1717 for his satires and exiled to England in 1726. In Candide his comic precision targets a fashionable philosophy which makes light of human suffering. With the other writings collected in this volume, Candide mocks the cruelty and obscurantism of civil and ecclesiastical establishments, aiming Voltaire's terrifying critical talent at the sources of both his persecution and his prestige.
