Bailey Cove Classics - Candide

One of the finest satires ever written. The swift and lively tale follows the absurdly melodramatic adventures of the youthful Candide. As Candide experiences and witnesses calamity upon calamity, he begins to discover that-- contrary to the teachings of his tutor, Dr. Pangloss-- all is not always for the best. Filled with wit, intelligence, and an abundance of dark humor, Candide teaches us that it is possible to challenge blind optimism without losing the will to live and pursue a happy life.
