Candide By Voltaire
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Download immediately.
Voltaire, was arguably the 18th century's greatest philosopher, and his most enduring work is his novella Candide; Or All for the Best. In it Voltaire parodies the philosophy of optimism championed... More > by Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibnitz, which purports that since God created the world and God is perfect, then everything in the world is perfect. Voltaire's answer to what he deemed ludicrous philosophy was Candide: a fantastic picaresque tale that follows the ultra naive title character around the world on a hilarious journey. He goes about with his teacher Pangloss, who's bent on proving the tenets of optimism. But through the course of worldly events, pessimism eventually seems to be a more accurate view. When Candide and his friends are killed, they are magically brought back to life. First they're rich, then they're poor... and finally they wind up on a farm in Turkey. This short book is a fast paced, funny, and delightful read.< Less

The Magnificent Ambersons By Booth Tarkington

The Magnificent Ambersons features the rise and fall of the Amberson clan, primarily of George Minafer, a spoiled and somewhat despicable character who's bent on upholding the honor of his family... More > name. It's an epic portrait of a Midwestern American family at the turn of the twentieth century, whose lives are dramatically perched on the razor's edge of a rapidly changing world. Tarkington brilliantly depicts the period when a small town grew into a city, and how the automobile morphed the landscape and its people. The Magnificent Ambersons is mainly told from George's point of view, with all of the nostalgic and romantic trappings of his family's fading legacy. There are two tragically interwoven love stories which frankly can get melodramatic at parts, but anyone with an interest in this period in history and quality literature will enjoy this well-wrought tale. Though the city described in the novel is made up, it was based on Indianapolis and the neighborhood in which Tarkington lived, Woodruff Place.< Less

EDMOND AND JULES DE GONCOURT Renée Mauperin Edmond de Goncourt, born at Nancy on May 26, 1822, and his brother Jules, born in Paris on December 17, 1830, were primarily artists, who, while... More > wandering over France, knapsack on back, discovered that their note-books also made them writers. In 1850 they entered upon a literary partnership which only finished with the death of the younger brother on June 20, 1870. Their earliest literary endeavours consisted of a series of historical studies dealing with the France of the second half of the eighteenth century. It was not until 1860, with the publication of their first novel, "Les Hommes de Lettres," that they discovered their true bent lay in fiction. "Renée Mauperin," which is, perhaps, the best known of their books, was published in 1864.< Less
