Voltaire, Letter on the Subject of Candide. Richard Holmes, Voltaire’s Grin. For the first book under its new imprint, Random House in 1928 commissioned Rockwell Kent to illustrate Candide (and his image of Candide’s house remains to this day the company’s logo). Leonard Bernstein’s comic operetta Candide, a collaboration with the author Lillian Hellman, premiered on Broadway in 1956 and continues to enjoy frequent revivals. Why Voltaire’s little book feels so modern clearly has something to do with the th. ings it destroys and the way in which it carries out that work of destruction.

A flamboyant and controversial personality of enormous wit and intelligence, Voltaire remains one of the most influential figures of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. Candide, his masterpiece, is a brilliant satire of the theory that our world is “the best of all possible worlds.” The book traces the picaresque adventures of the guileless Candide, who is forced into the army, flogged, shipwrecked, betrayed, robbed, separated from his beloved Cunegonde, tortured by the Inquisition, et cetera, all without losing his resilience and will to live and pursue a happy life. This Modern Library edition, published to celebrate the seventy-fifth anniversary of Random House, is a facsimile of the first book ever released under the Random House colophon. It includes the timeless illustrations by Rockwell Kent, a twentieth-century artist whose wit and genius serve as a counterpart and compliment to Voltaire’s.
  • This phone holder is stronger than I expected. I thought it would be slightly flimsy, but it is actually pretty solid. The only thing is with it being so solid, it is a little stiff to move around and get into position. But once in position, it is very reliable and you don't have to worry it or whatever it is holding slipping or falling out. I use it to watch movies while I lay in bed. I used to hold them with my hand, now I can put my hands anywhere I need them. Hehe. But it!

  • Only have had it for about 1 hour but it works great!
    strong wire, strong grip and just the right length Only con is when I was tightening on to my bed frame I did it to tight and started to hear a slight cracking noise so don't over tightin on wide objects besides that its working great!

  • Voltaire had an interesting and sometimes tumultuous relation with "The Church" and religious thought of his time. In Candide, he takes great pains to ridicule the writings of both Milton and Alexander Pope, more specifically the latter in An Essay on Man, in which both writers attempt to "vindicate the ways of God to man". To understand this, or better, to have read these writings will further illuminate what Voltaire is attempting in Candide.
    Candide is the protagonist and is a seemingly good-hearted but rather simple fellow whose mentor, Pangloss, teaches him that no matter what happens it is always for the best. As a note, pay attention to each of the main characters names as they seem to me to have a descriptive quality to them, e.g. Pan, meaning "all" and gloss from the Greek glossa, meaning tongue, to get a name that roughly means "all talk".
    The story begins with Candide and his love interest being suddenly separated and the events of his life from there. What follows in the story is a series of horrible events mixed with some virtuous ones that Pangloss continuously explains to Candide that whatever happens is for the best.
    Even if you have no philosophical interest, the book is both funny and sad, entertaining yet thought provoking with a couple of memorable passages. I consider it a pretty good read and, as a bonus, a quick one.

  • I was very pleased when this product arrived. So easy to set up and very durable. It is so simple to use with the iPhone and cannot say enough about its quality. Would highly recommend this product.

  • Product is as described. Works great for what I needed it for. On time delivery. No problems.

  • Nice product

  • Very sturdy and well made. Packed well with all hardware. Took about 10 minutes to install.

  • I first saw the musical adaptation of "Candide" on Broadway, in the 1970's, and loved it. I decided to do it justice by reading Voltaire's original novel, and lo! The book has an entire story well beyond the musical adaptation! I found it to be not only instructive, nut enlightening, with a message that applies to the modern world as well. It is funny, pitiful, and a fast read, worthy of any educated individual, especially in our senior years.
