A satiric classic, Candide examines the life of a naIve young man who grows increasingly disillusioned with the world after he is cast out by his family. When he is sent away in disgrace after kissing his cousin, the lady CunEgonde, Candide finds himself first pressed into military service with the Prussians, and then beset by natural disasters in Portugal before being reunited first with his tutor, Pangloss, and then finally with his beloved CunEgonde. As the trio embark on a new life in South America, they find their faith once again challenged by the events that befall them. Be it mystery, romance, drama, comedy, politics, or history, great literature stands the test of time.
