The purpose of this book is educational. I have read, studied and taught Voltaire’s "Candide," and I wish to pass on what I have learned to other people who are interested in studying Voltaire’s "Candide. "
This book uses a question-and-answer format. It poses, then answers, relevant questions about Voltaire, background information, and "Candide." I recommend that you read the relevant section of "Candide," then read my comments, then go back and re-read the relevant section of "Candide." However, do what works for you.
Teachers may find this book useful as a discussion guide for the novel. Teachers can have students read chapters from the short novel, then teachers can ask students selected questions from this study guide.
