Om boka

According to many scholars, Voltaire (pen name for Francois Marie Arouet)
was the embodiment of the Enlightenment. Born in Paris is 1694, he was well
educated by the Jesuits, studying law prior to turning to writing as a
profession. His lampoons and satires won him fame and infamy; he was imprisoned
and exiled at various times for his writing. He was forced into exile from
France to England; later, he was invited to work for Frederick the Great in
Berlin (politics and his reputation blew rapidly in the ever-changing winds of
Europe). Voltaire wrote "Candide" shortly after this period, when he had moved
to Geneva. In 1778, the year of his death, he returned to Paris, a triumphant
celebrity - many of his ideas served to strengthen the movements that would
eventually culminate in the French Revolution.
