Résumé:

"A philosophical novel satirizing the optimistic creed 'All is for the best in this best of all possible worlds, ' through the misadventures of Candide." "In this philosophical fantasy, naive Candide sees and suffers much such misfortune that he ultimately rejects the philosophy of his tutor Doctor Pangloss, who claims that 'all is for the best in this best of all possible worlds.' Candide and his companions -- Pangloss, his beloved Cunegonde, and his servant Cacambo -- display an instinct for survival that provides them hope in an otherwise somber setting. When they all retire together to a simple life on a small farm, they discover that the secret of happiness is 'to cultivate one's garden, ' a practical philosophy that excludes excessive idealism and nebulous metaphysics."
