Most widely held works by Voltaire
Candide by Voltaire ( Book )
622 editions published between 1759 and 2015 in 20 languages and held by 8,401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The story of a gentle man who, though pummeled and slapped in every direction by fate, clings desperately to the belief that he lives in "the best of all possible worlds." On the surface a witty, bantering tale, this eighteenth-century classic is actually a savage, satiric thrust at the philosophical optimism that proclaims that all disaster and human suffering is part of a benevolent cosmic plan
Letters on the English, or lettres philosophiques by Voltaire ( Book )
475 editions published between 1733 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 6,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To remind them that there is hope for men because they have it in their power to be reasonable. Voltaire was on the trail of principals
Candide, or, Optimism by Voltaire ( Book )
129 editions published between 1896 and 2011 in English and French and held by 5,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Candide and his tutor Pangloss travel the globe trying to follow the philosophy 'All is for the best in this, the best of all possible worlds'. However, they are stung and let down at every turn, being robbed, tortured and ridiculed, amongst other trials. On hearing about their often disastrous travels, a listener feels unfortunately less than empathetic, and can't help themselves laughing out loud at this very funny account of the trail our optimistic travelers take, and at their eternal and endearing joy at the world and its potential discoveries
Philosophical dictionary by Voltaire ( Book )
223 editions published between 1765 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 3,971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here is the only available English translation of one of the landmarks of European Enlightenment thought, Voltaire's 1764 edition of A Pocket Philosophical Dictionary. Highly entertaining and still highly relevant, the "dictionary" actually consists of a sequence of short essays, arranged in alphabetical order, covering everything from Apocalypse and Atheism to Tolerance and Tyranny. The unifying thread of these articles is Voltaire's vitriolic critique of established religion: ridicule of established dogma, attacks on superstition, and pleas for toleration. Witty and ironic, this is very much a work of combat, part of Voltaire's high-profile political struggle in the 1760s to defend the victims of religious and political intolerance. This new translation is based on the definitive French edition of 1764 that provoked widespread controversy and condemnation. In his Introduction Nicholas Cronk considers the nature of Voltaire's engagement in political debate, literary style, contemporary reaction, the lasting impact of the work and its continuing relevance to debates on religious intolerance. The volume also includes an up-to-date bibliography and full explanatory notes. - Publisher

Candide; ou, L'optimisme by Voltaire ( Book )
670 editions published between 1759 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 3,596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On the surface a witty, bantering tale of advneture (or misadventure), Candide is actually a savage, satiric thrust at the philosophical optimism which proclaims that nation-wide disasters and individual suffering are both just part of a cosmic plan which is essentially good. Voltaire was not prepared to excuse the world's evil quite so easily, now would he encourage man to accept evil as fate without trying to prevent it or fight it. Candide is the story of a man who, though pummeled and slapped in every direction by fate, tries desperately to cling to his optimism
