It's no secret that Voltaire was perhaps the most controversial writer of the Enlightenment, but his most scandalous work gave a new meaning of controversial to the author, poet and playwright. The Maid of Orleans, an epic poem about Joan of Arc, published in 1730. The poem was thought to be one of Voltaire's more involved works, featuring elaborate cantos and verse. The poem was outlawed and banned throughout a great portion of Europe during the 18th and 19th centuries for its ridiculing and satirizing of the life of Joan of Arc. The poem was described in many contemporary newspapers as "bawdy" at best. Voltaire became publicly ashamed of his work after much criticism about the poem's subverted nature and perverse sexual undertones. The author even attempted to spread the rumor that his work had somehow been tampered with to soil the poem's message. He published another version in 1762 omitting the controversial themes and passages, but the original poem remains an example of one of the most contentious works in modern literary history

Letters of Lord Chesterfield to his son by Philip Dormer Stanhope Chesterfield( Book )

3 editions published between 1901 and 1937 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los grandes señores, especialmente los del siglo XVIII, gozan de la fama de ser pésimos padres de familia. Philip Dormer Stanhope, cuarto conde de Chesterfield (1694-1773), el autor de las Cartas que se van a leer, es el prototipo por excelencia del gran señor dieciochesco. Sus costumbres libertinas, el wit que le hacía temible en Londres y ser apreciado por Swift y por Voltaire, se diría que casan mal con el amor paterno y la vocación perseverante del preceptor. Y, sin embargo, fueron precisamente el padre y el preceptor los que prevalecieron, en la fama póstuma de Lord Chesterfield, sobre el hombre de mundo, con su desenvoltura, y sobre el hombre de ingenio. Un año después de su muerte, en 1774, veía la luz la obra que ha hecho de él, quizá a su pesar, un clásico de la literatura inglesa: las cartas que dirige a su hijo Philip desde 1737 [...]. Nunca padre alguno se ha mostrado preceptor tan afectuoso y previsor como este Lord que pasaba por seco y desencantado. Nunca hijo alguno ha sido guiado, seguido, acompañado, adoctrinado, aconsejado, enseñado, reprendido, con más paciente dulzura y vigilancia que este hijo de Lord
