Candide by Voltaire( Book )

12 editions published between 1934 and 1969 in 3 languages and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this philosophical fantasy, naive Candide sees and suffers such misfortune that he ultimately rejects the philosophy of his tutor Doctor Pangloss, who claims that "all is for the best in this best of all possible worlds." Candide and his companions--Pangloss, his beloved Cunegonde, and his servant Cacambo--display an instinct for survival that provides them hope in an otherwise somber setting. When they all retire together to a simple life on a small farm, they discover that the secret of happiness is to "cultivate one's garden," a practical philosophy that excludes idealism and nebulous metaphysics
