The complete works of Voltaire by Voltaire( Book )
2,973 editions published between 1784 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 8,043 libraries worldwide
Edition critique de l'oeuvre la plus volumineuse mais aussi la moins connue écrite entre 1770 et 1774, fidèle à l'édition originale. Elle comprendra sept volumes (le T. 37 contenant l'introduction, la description complète des éditions et l'index général). Elle présente un précis des idées de Voltaire sur un large éventail de sujets, incluant religion, art, histoire et littérature
Candide by Voltaire( Book )
368 editions published between 1864 and 2015 in 17 languages and held by 5,656 libraries worldwide
One of the world's great satires since its first publication in 1759. Witty, caustic skewering of romance, science, philosophy, religion, government - nearly all human ideals and institutions
Candide; ou, L'optimisme by Voltaire( Book )
525 editions published between 1759 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,999 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
Candide : or, Optimism by Voltaire( Book )
123 editions published between 1778 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 2,843 libraries worldwide
It was the indifferent shrug and callous inertia that this 'optimism' concealed which so angered Voltaire, who found the 'all for the best' approach a patently inadequate response to suffering, to natural disasters - such as the recent earthquakes in Lima and Lisbon - not to mention the questions of illness and man-made war. Moreover, as the rebel whose satiric genius had earned him not only international acclaim, but two stays in the Bastille, flogging and exile, Voltaire knew personally what suffering involved. In Candide he whisks his young hero and friends through a ludicrous variety of tortures, tragedies and reversals of fortune, in the company of Pangloss, a 'metaphysico-theologo-cosmolo-nigologist' of unflinching optimism. The result is one of the glories of eighteenth-century satire
Romans et contes by Voltaire( Book )
299 editions published between 1778 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,328 libraries worldwide
18th century-26 novels & short stories. Imaginative themes of destiny and optimism

Candide by Voltaire( Sound Recording )
102 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,092 libraries worldwide
In this witty political satire, a gentleman plagued by misfortune clings to the belief that all is for the best. Voltaire mocks the eternal optimist philosophy of his day that proclaimed human and natural disasters part of a larger cosmic plan

"A masterpiece of Enlightenment-era literature, this collection of brief, incisive essays constitutes a thought-provoking analysis of eighteenth-century social and religious conventions. Volaire intended to entertain asw well as to enlighten, and his sardonic wit lends a strikingly modern feeling to these writings."--Cover

On crimes and punishments by Cesare Beccaria( Book )
120 editions published between 1767 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 1,195 libraries worldwide
"Published in 1764, On Crimes and Punishments by Cesare Beccaria (1738-1794) was greeted with much attention and debate in Europe and North America. Intellectuals and rulers alike commended the work and looked to it for ideas that might help guide the various reform projects of the day. The equality of every citizen before the law, the right to a fair trial, the abolition of the death penalty, and the elimination of the use of torture in criminal interrogations are but a few of the fundamental concepts articulated by Beccaria." "This volume provides a new English translation of Beccaria's classic treatise as well as responses by a number of his contemporaries. Of particular interest is Voltaire's commentary on Beccaria's text, included in its entirety. The supplementary materials testify not only to the power and significance of Beccaria's ideas, but to their controversial nature. While many supporters proclaimed that the work established principles of enduring importance to any society grappling with matters of political and criminal justice, a number of critics roundly denounced it, fearing that the book's attack on feudal traditions and its call to separate law from religion (and thus crime from sin) would result in political instability and undermine the longstanding privileges and powers of church and state." "Long appreciated as a foundational text in criminology, Beccaria's arguments still resonate with current debates over capital punishment, political torture, and human rights abuses. This splendid new translation brings Beccaria's influential work to a wider audience, while providing important historical and political context."--Jacket
Letters concerning the English nation by Voltaire( Book )
151 editions published between 1733 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 879 libraries worldwide
Noted as the most influential event of his career, Voltaire's living in England between 1726 and 1729 inspired his famous Letters on the English (or Letters Concerning the English Nation), published in 1733. These were not letters, but actually a series of essays about the author's experiences of events, places and people. Letters on the English consists of 24 essays on subjects including the Quakers, Church of England, Presbyterians, Socinains, Parliament, government, trade, inoculation, Lord Bacon, Locke, Descartes, Isaac Newton, attraction, tragedy, comedy, geometry, the Earl of Rochester, Alexander Pope and more. Although the portrayal of English people and government was largely positive, Voltaire had no problem finding people and institutions to satirize, including the Presbyterians and the House of Commons. He first published the essays in English, and upon seeing the success of the papers, published them in French the following year. The letters were immediately suppressed and banned in France as they were seen as an attack on the French government. Today, the letters are translated from the controversial French versions rather than the original English ones
Henriade by Voltaire( Book )
365 editions published between 1728 and 2005 in 8 languages and held by 814 libraries worldwide
Candide and other stories by Voltaire( Book )
13 editions published between 1966 and 2009 in English and held by 783 libraries worldwide
The spirit of satire flourished during the Enlightenment as in no other period, and the crowning achievement of that caustic, brilliantly learned age was Voltaire's Candide, published in 1759, at the height of its author's enormous European fame. Following the worldwide encounters - with shipwrecks, earthquakes, pestilence, and human insanity - of its hero and his incomparably absurd tutor, Dr. Pangloss, Candide is the most entertaining of all philosophical novels and the most philosophical of entertainments
Letters on England by Voltaire( Book )
30 editions published between 1778 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 455 libraries worldwide
Also known as the Lettres anglaises ou philosophiques, Voltaire's response to his exile in England offered the French public of 1734 a panoramic view of British culture. Perceiving them as a veiled attack against the ancient regime, however, the French government ordered the letters burned and Voltaire persecuted. [Publit]
