Banned Books - Candide


Candide  -  Voltaire   (1759)
Considered one of the foundation stones of the “Western Canon” and certainly one of the most readable and with one of the most famous last lines in literature. A wild, messy ride, it is a blasphemous and seditious satire. Banned by the Catholic Church and in the US as late and as ridiculously as 1929.
