Voltaire: Collected Romances: 20+ Novels, Short Stories, Satires & Fables (Illustrated Edition)

This unique collection of Voltaire's most iconic romances has been designed and formatted to the highest digital standards.

François-Marie Arouet (1694–1778), known by his nom de plume Voltaire, was a French Enlightenment writer, historian, and philosopher famous for his wit, his attacks on the established Catholic Church, and his advocacy of freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and separation of church and state. Voltaire was a versatile writer, producing works in almost every literary form, including plays, poems, novels, essays, and historical and scientific works. He was an outspoken advocate of several liberties, despite the risk this placed him in under the strict censorship laws of the time. As a satirical polemicist, he frequently made use of his works to criticize intolerance, religious dogma, and the French institutions of his day.
