The Cambridge companion to Voltaire by Nicholas Cronk( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a leading thinker of the European Enlightenment, Voltaire is a central figure in France's collective cultural memory. The popularity of Candide has made him perhaps best known as a writer of tales. Yet these represent only a fraction of his entire œuvre. Voltaire created a style of authorship which made him the most famous writer in Europe and turned his name into a brand for a certain style of writing and thinking. This Companion covers his plays, fiction, pamphlets, correspondence, biblical criticism, and historical, political and philosophical thought, to give a wide-ranging view of his writings. The most comprehensive book on Voltaire available in English, it makes accessible the most recent research in France as well as the English-speaking world, in a series of original essays and a guide to sources. The essays demonstrate why Voltaire remains an essential point of reference in defining the modern intellectual today."--Publisher description
Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rostand's hero has become a figure of theatrical legend: Cyrano, with the nose of a clown and the soul of a poet, is by turns comic and sad, as reckless in love as in war, and never at a loss for words. Audiences immediately took him to their hearts, and since the triumphant opening night in December 1897 - at the height of the Dreyfus Affair - the play has never lost its appeal. Christopher Fry's acclaimed translation into 'chiming couplets' represents the homage of one versedramatist to another. - Tonight when I make my sweeping bow at heaven's gate, one thing I shall still possess, at any
Letters concerning the English nation by Voltaire( Book )

18 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noted as the most influential event of his career, Voltaire's living in England between 1726 and 1729 inspired his famous Letters on the English (or Letters Concerning the English Nation), published in 1733. These were not letters, but actually a series of essays about the author's experiences of events, places and people. Letters on the English consists of 24 essays on subjects including the Quakers, Church of England, Presbyterians, Socinains, Parliament, government, trade, inoculation, Lord Bacon, Locke, Descartes, Isaac Newton, attraction, tragedy, comedy, geometry, the Earl of Rochester, Alexander Pope and more. Although the portrayal of English people and government was largely positive, Voltaire had no problem finding people and institutions to satirize, including the Presbyterians and the House of Commons. He first published the essays in English, and upon seeing the success of the papers, published them in French the following year. The letters were immediately suppressed and banned in France as they were seen as an attack on the French government. Today, the letters are translated from the controversial French versions rather than the original English ones

Rameau's nephew ; and, First satire by Denis Diderot( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Diderot's dialogue begins with a chance encounter in a Paris cafe between two acquaintances. Their talk ranges broadly across art, music, education, and the contemporary scene, as the nephew of composer Rameau, amoral and bohemian, alternately shocks and amuses the moral, bourgeois figure of his interlocutor. The dialogue exposes the corruption of society in Diderot's characteristic philosophical exploration." "The debates of the French Enlightenment speak to us in this new translation, which also includes the First Satire, a related work that provides the context for Rameau's Nephew, Diderot's 'second satire'."--Jacket
