Description: In this new translation of Voltaire's best-known work, distinguished translator Burton Raffel captures the irreverent spirit of "Candide "and" "renders the novel in clear, vivacious English. Stylistically superior to all predecessors, Raffel's version now stands as the translation of choice for twenty-first-century readers. "[A] fine new translation."--Adam Gopnik, "New Yorker" "Burton Raffel's excellent translations of a wide variety of texts are rightly admired, and so will this one be. Thanks be, he possesses the wit necessary to take us on and along the satirical road of Voltaire's "Candide.""--Mary Ann Caws, editor of "The Yale Anthology of Twentieth-Century French Poetry"
