191 pages. Written by the wittiest writer in an age of wits, these two tales are clearly the work of the mind that produced "Candide". "Zadig", one of Voltaire's earliest tales, is set in the exotic East and is told in the comic spirit of "Candide"; L'Ingenu, written after "Candide", is a darker tale in which an American Indian records his impressions of France. Voltaire’s faith in man’s resilience is displayed with immense gaiety, inventive imagination and irreverence for official doctrine. "Zadig", written in 1747, is full of vivaciousness and everyone always bounces hopefully up, whatever fate may have done. The humour is less constant in "L’Ingénu" and there is a mature and satisfying development in Voltaire’s thinking on the problem of evil. John Butt has also translated "Candide" in the Penguin Classics edition.
