A satirical masterpiece from the master himself: Voltaire. Candide is blown by the winds of fortune every which way, but manages to remain convinced that no matter how inhuman the violence, no matter how senseless the suffering, all things continue to work out for the best.

In Candide, Voltaire whisks his young hero and friends through a ludicrous variety of tortures, tragedies and reversals of fortune, in teh company of Pangloss, a 'metaphysico-theologo-cosmolo-nigologist' of unfliching optimism. The result is one of the glories of eighteenth century satire.
