В социально-философской работе "Простодушный" Вольтер в своей свойственной манере разрушает все дурные догматы, пытается достучаться до читателя и показать истинную изнанку общества, и каждого человека в отдельности.

Antes de passar à opinião propriamente dita deste livro, uma curiosidade: O Ingénuo é o livro mais antigo que já li. Não conto com “Os Lusíadas” porque apenas estudei excertos na escola e nunca cheguei a ler a obra por completo, portanto este livro de uma das figuras mais importantes do Iluminismo, publicado em 1767, foi mesmo o primeiro livro que me fez recuar para trás do século XIX no que às leituras diz respeito. Se calhar um pouco por isso, confesso que parti para esta leitura com algum rec...more

Ini salah satu karya Voltaire yang terkenal selain Candide and Zadig. Kisah ini menceritakan tentang seorang pemuda dengan nama yang mencerminkan kepribadian dan cara berpikirnya "Si Lugu". Melalui karakter si Lugu ini, Voltaire melancarkan kritiknya yang tajam terhadap kondisi sosial politik Prancis.

berikut ini kutipan-kutipan yang mengandung sindiran maupun renungan Voltaire terhadap sifat manusia:

1. Mereka tak dapat tidur lagi namun malas bangun, sehingga kehilangan begitu banyak waktu berha...more

Depicting a satirical look at religious doctrines, traditions, government and laws, Voltaire presents the tale of a Huron Indian, who has just crossed the Atlantic, discovered some family members, and must now conform to their way of life. His misinterpretations of laws and customs prove rather comic in some instances but eventually he is imprisoned for such misinterpretation and loses his lover...

Es una historia realmente encantadora, puesto que el Ingenuo resultó dejar de ser ingenuo de una forma bastante dura, al afrontar la vida con las dificultades que esta le trajo.

La novela tal como lo dice el resumen, es una denuncia de la pérdida de autenticidad y virtud de las naciones civilizadas y de sus habitantes, que arrastran con lo mismo a los lugares que van a conquistar. Vemos en esta obra que desde aquellos líderes más influyentes y respetados, la corrupción y el oprobio vive en ellos...more

Pag 9 Balivo (dal latino baiulivus, forma aggettivale di baiulus, "portatore") fu il nome di un funzionario, investito di vari tipi di autorità o giurisdizione, presente nei secoli passati in numerosi paesi occidentali (principalmente europei).

Sejak awal membaca kisah Si Lugu ini saya tidak bisa tidak menahan senyum. Karena memang keluguan Si Lugu menciptakan situasi-situasi yang jenaka, dan karena kagum dengan kepandaian seorang Voltaire dalam menulis.

Apa yang saya tangkap adalah Voltaire berusaha mengkritik habis-habisan kemapanan cara berpikir dan cara hidup orang-orang Eropa pada masanya. Dan dia melakukannya dengan cara yang amat sangat cerdas. Meminjam mulut, sikap dan tingkah laku Si Lugu, Voltaire menyuarakan apa yang menurut...more

Uma história simples, sem pretenciosismos literários, sobre a ingenuidade de algumas almas que deambulam nesta selva que é a vida.
Confesso que, inicialmente, fiquei um pouco céptico sobre o rumo da história mas, aos poucos, esta torna-se cada vez mais interessante, por entre as mil e uma aventuras por que Candido passa.
Maria Felgueiras
I enjoyed the subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, criticism on church and social interactions at the time.

Kemalangan dapat berguna untuk sesuatu. Tidak ada pengorbanan yang sia-sia dan tidak ada ketidak-adilan yang bertahan lama. Kisah pengorbadan nona de saint Yves untuk membebaskan kekasihnya, si Lugu, yang dipenjara karena ketidakadilan pemimpin negeri dan pemuka agama pada saat itu. Bahkan kapitalisme agama menjadi problem yang sangat rumit pada jaman dahulu. Quote yang saya suka pada buku ini, "Sungguh mengherankan, setelah membicarakan sedemikian banyak malapetakayang bertebaran di muka bumi i...more

Agora nesta colecção, é a vez de um autor francês: Voltaire. Este livro conta-nos a história de um hurão que vai "parar" á França e encontrar os seus familiares através de uma série de situações inesperadas. Acaba por se apaixonar pela sua madrinha de baptismo e acaba por ser preso na Bastilha. Um livro que coloca uma série de questões acerca da religião, da sociedade, da justiça (ou a falta dela), entre muitas outras coisas. Foi um livro que gostei bastante de ler, apesar de não ter gostado ass...more

sometimes i get the feeling voltaire might've been really great if he'd been just a little more earnest and a little less oh look at me i'm voltaire i'm so french and witty ooh la la (authority is bad). he approaches this straightforwardness sometimes, but always goes back to that other side. french people, am i right? this story was very readable and entertaining though. is there anything else by him left to read, after zadig, candide, and this (aside from the essays)?

La lecture agrandit l’âme, et un ami éclairé la console.

L'absence augmente toujours l'amour qui n'est pas satisfait, et la philosophie ne le diminue pas.

La triste Saint-Yves contribuait encore plus que son médecin à rendre sa maladie dangereuse. Son âme tuait son corps. La foule des pensées qui l'agitaient portait dans ses veins un poison plus dangereux que celui de la fièvre la pous brûlante.

Elle eut le courage de s'expliquer.

Le temps adoucit tout.

Un de mes profs d'allemand aimait répéter que Molière était le seul génie universel. S'il devait y avoir un génie universel et si le hasard l'avait placé dans la littérature française, je serais plus tentée de le voir en Voltaire. J'ai bien du mal à ne pas mettre 5 étoiles à un de ses contes, mais les Huguenots, le roi de France et sa cour, les diacres, le pape qui fait et défait les mariages... tout ça est bien loin. A lire, oui, mais pas en priorité.
Intan Kirana
C'est un bon livre qui j'aime beaucoup. Voltaire menulis dengan gaya penulisan yang seperti dongeng, tetapi sebenarnya dalam kata-kata yang sederhana itu terkandung makna yang dalam. Tidak berbelit-belit, tetapi kritiknya tepat. Saya sangat suka dan setuju dengan pemikiran Voltaire di dalam buku ini, terutama pada pemuka agama yang tidak mengamalkan agama yang ia dalami

I feel like, you've read one novel by Voltaire, you've read them all. Had some good stuff in there, but it felt like there was too much period-specific criticism of the Catholic Church, the Jesuits, etc. Had its insights and some interesting points as well, and did include a pretty early call for increased education of women.
Paolo Rinco
Un racconto molto pungente dal capostipite degli anticlericali!
Ricardo Mota
Sátira de Voltaire extremamente mordaz. Aponta o dedo à sociedade, à política, à religião e ao preconceito. A ingenuidade não é ignorância.

Leitura relâmpago bastante recomendável.
Matthew Offner
"Misfortune has its uses" is perhaps a theme in every Voltaire novel (at least in the three that I have read this year). A rather useful philosophy of Old Regime France.
Reginacm
Apreciei a sátira religiosa e a crítica aos costumes, sistema judicial e corrupção da sociedade francesa da época.

"Para alguma coisa serve a infelicidade."
Adi
whoaaa!! dah lama tak baca satira tingkat terulung !
sindiran ke atas korupsi gereja serta memperlekehkan tamadun eropah secara genius.
voltaire mmg rock
Giyanto
Penggambaran karakter yang sangat kuat, dengan kandungan pesan filosofis dalam konteks historis, sosiologis dan budaya Prancis abad 18. Patut dibaca!
Mafalda
This satire about religion, society rules and conventions was a great read. Very humorous and straightforward. It was a quick and enjoyable read.

Sumpah! ada 10 kali mungkin gw baca, teteeppp ga ngerti! berat cuy!!! pdhal, udah yg versi bahasa indonesianya, lho.
Pedro Melo
For a book of the 18th century, is very good.
You can almost see yourself in that time, living their lives.
Teresa
Não me concentrei na leitura e por isso não gostei. Ou vice-versa. Não sei.

In 1694, Age of Enlightenment leader Francois-Marie Arouet, known as Voltaire, was born in Paris. Jesuit-educated, he began writing clever verses by the age of 12. He launched a lifelong, successful playwriting career in 1718, interrupted by imprisonment in the Bastille. Upon a second imprisonment, in which Francois adopted the pen name Voltaire, he was released after agreeing to move to London. T...more
