ABSTRACT
A literary criticism of the book "Candide," by Voltaire is presented. Though published in 1759, the author highlights the relevance of its irony and scepticism to the 2009 clashes of ideologies. An overview of the story is presented by the author wherein he cites the quoted conclusion of the novel, "That Is Excellently Said. But Let Us Cultivate Our Garden." Most interpretations see it as a withdrawal from the hurly-burly but the author believes that these interpretations misunderstood Voltaire's message of continued struggle against injustice.
