About this audiobook

Tomandole el pelo a la humanidad. La vision del mundo que tuvo Voltaire debio haber sido muy risuena, ya que su obra es un conjunto de ironias y de humor que va de lo escabroso a lo filosofico. Lo notable es que todo esto estuvo al servicio de ideas, en las cuales el tono satirico sirivieron para encauzar y ensenar al mundo hacia algo mejor. La historia de Candido, de su amada pero no muy pura Cunegunda y del optimista profesor Pangloss, quien opinaba que vivimos en el mejor de los mundos, a pesar de que todas las experiencias le dicen exactamente lo contrario. Candido de Voltaire es pues, ademas de una obra con hondo contenido una de las piezas maestras del humor negro, y eso se refleja en la lectura que de esta creacion hace Laura Garcia, la conocidsa artista de teatro y de television.

Voltaire

Born in Paris in 1694, François-Marie Arouet, who would later go by the nom-de-plume Voltaire, was a French Enlightenment philosopher, poet, historian, and author. Voltaire’s writing was often controversial, and in 1715 he was sent into his first exile in Tulle after a writing a satirical piece about the Duke of Orleans, the Regent of France. It was during this time that he produced his first major work, the play Oedipus. Although allowed to return to Paris a year later, Voltaire’s writing continued to land him in trouble. He was jailed in the Bastille two more times and was exiled from Paris for a good portion of his life. Throughout these troubles, Voltaire continued to write, producing works of poetry, a number of plays, and some historical and political texts. His most famous work is the satirical novel Candide, and many of his plays, including Oedipus and Socrates, are still performed today. Voltaire died in 1778.
