Note that Pangloss is discussed immediately after Candide . Although he is absent for most of the book, his influence on the hero is visible throughout. Candide : The name Candide is derived from the Latin, candidus, which means white, and usually symbolized innocence in ancient writ- ings. It also means candid, and our hero is noth- ing if not that. Voltaire is more sympathetic toward Martin than he is to- ward Pangloss, but the reader must remember that Candide was written to attack the optimists, and not the pessimists, this job is taken care of in other writings. In this respect, the reader should recall that Candide rejects both men in the last chapter of the book.

Candide, Or optimism. The robert M. adams translation. Dennis Fletcher, Candide and the Philosophy of the Garden. Candide is a cruel and destructive book as well as a funny one. Funny and cruel: the qualities go together more easily perhaps than we like to think. But they would not suffice for the peculiar vitality of Candide, unless something else were added.
Candide (1759) is a bright, colourful literary firework display of a novella. With sparkling wit and biting humour, Voltaire hits several targets with fierce and comic satire: organised religion, the overweening pride of aristocrats, merchants' greed, colonial ambition and the hopeless complacency of Leibnizian philosophy that believes 'all is for the best in the best of all possible worlds'.
