Editorial Reviews

Drawing on old maps, contemporary drawings and paintings, portraits and other archive material, the excellent Famous Authors series not only presents a factual outline of the writers' lives, but also conveys a clear visual picture of the social and historical background to their writing. Recommended for all ages. THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE

Voltaire, one of the greatest minds that France ever produced, was born François-Marie Arouet in Paris in 1694. Enduring both several months of imprisonment and many years of exile, he produced a continuous flow of plays, books, pamphlets, and other publications. Even his letters, of which over 14,000 are known to exist. are considered monuments of French literature.

To this day, Voltaire is not only viewed as a towering genius of intellect, style, and wit, but also as a tireless crusader for social reform. He often devoted his literary efforts to the fight against bigotry, tyranny, and the cruelty to which humans subject each other. He was an outspoken champion of truth and humanity whose works influenced the direction of Western civilization, and whose ideals built the intellectual platforms of both the French and American revolutions. .
