Description
Although perhaps best known in the English-speaking world as the author of Candide, Voltaire towered over 18th-century French literature, as much for his strident social views and iconoclastic wit as for his literary productions. Composed in secret and intended only for posthumous publication, Voltaire's memoirs avoid straightforward confessions and instead recount the author's complex friendship with Frederick the Great—whom he praises and reviles in equal measure—while humorously chronicling French-German cultural exchanges of his era. In the foreword, Ruth Scurr reintroduces Voltaire, and puts him in the context of the Age of Enlightenment.
