Candide, ou l'Optimisme (/ k ɒ n ˈ d iː d / kon-DEED, French: ()) is a French satire first published in by Voltaire, a philosopher of the Age of Enlightenment.

Book Summary Candide begins in the German town of Westphalia, where Candide, a young man, lives in the castle of Baron of Thunder-ten-tronckh.A noted philosopher, Doctor Pangloss, tutors the baron on philosophical optimism, the idea that "all is for the best in this best of all worlds.".
