CANDIDE This essay was found at www.screw-essays.com and should not be plagiarized Book Review # 1 C A N D I D E b y : V O L T A I R E (FORMALISM ) Voltaire's CANDIDE is a story about a man who was in search of true happiness and who was in a journey that proves that not all is for the best. He grew up in castle of Westphalia , but was exiled when found kissing the baron's daughter. That was where his misfortunes began,among them was when he was tortured during An army training, when his philosopher was hanged in an autoda'fe,when he rescued his true love from the hands of the Inquisitor and the Jew ,when the Anabaptist James and his friend died during the quakes in Lisbon ,and when he realized that a nation ,in order to be happy, should be secluded from the rest of the world,despite of these… he still believed that there is a "cause and effect" for everything!At this point,we would still find him struggling and fighting in hope that he and Cunegonde would still be together.He started
Martin as his valet and who accompanied him through Venice. Another bad point of this book is the ending part. The theme of this book is that no one should be a victim"in life we know that there are struggles and obstacles that SHOULD be overcomed and that not everything should be passively accepted"Voltaire's initiates the idea that people should work to make their happiness. The only message here is we shouldn't hope for the best but we should strive for it. It was skillfully written but,it's not complete"it shouldn't've ended that way. Pangloss would always say,"Everything was made for a purpose, all is necessary for the BEST purpose". And lastly,this poor turkish farmer whom he meets,and allows Candide to realize that all he needs to be happy is a garden that he could build his life around and that he was right not to lose hope. There were a lot of times that he wanted to give up"but the only thing that kept him alive was the hope that things will get better.
