About this audiobook

Candide ou l'Optimisme est un conte philosophique de Voltaire paru à Genève en janvier 1759. Il a été réédité vingt fois du vivant de l'auteur, ce qui en fait un des plus grands succès littéraires français de l'époque. Candide est un jeune garçon vivant au château du baron de Thunderten-tronckh qui se trouve en Westphalie. Il a pour maître Pangloss, philosophe qui enseigne la " métaphysico-théologo-cosmolonigologie ", et qui professait, à l'instar de Leibniz, que l'on vit dans le meilleur des mondes possibles. Candide est chassé de ce meilleur des mondes possibles à la suite d'un baiser interdit échangé avec Cunégonde, la fille du Baron. Candide découvre alors le monde, et va de déconvenue en déconvenue sur les chemins d'un long voyage initiatique.

Voltaire

Imprisoned in the Bastille at the age of twenty-three for a criminal libel against the Regent of France, François-Marie Arouet was freed in 1718 with a new name, Voltaire, and the completed manuscript of his first play, Oedipe, which became a huge hit on the Paris stage in the same year. For the rest of his long and dangerously eventful life, this cadaverous genius shone with uninterrupted brilliance as one of the most famous men in the world. Revered, and occasionally reviled, in the royal courts of Europe, his literary outpourings and fearless campaigning against the medieval injustices of church and state in the midst of the ‘Enlightenment’ did much to trigger the French Revolution and to formulate the present notions of democracy. But above all, Voltaire was an observer of the human condition, and his masterpiece Candide stands out as an astonishing testament to his unequalled insight into the way we were and probably always will be.
