On the surface a witty, bantering tale of advneture (or misadventure), Candide is actually a savage, satiric thrust at the philosophical optimism which proclaims that nation-wide disasters and individual suffering are both just part of a cosmic plan which is essentially good. Voltaire was not prepared to excuse the world's evil quite so easily, now would he encourage man to accept evil as fate without trying to prevent it or fight it. Candide is the story of a man who, though pummeled and slapped in every direction by fate, tries desperately to cling to his optimism.
