Life is about creating yourself. I only try to dance better than myself.
Synopsis[ edit ] Candide contains thirty episodic chapters, which may be grouped into two main schemes: By the former scheme, the first half of Candide constitutes the rising action and the last part the resolution.
This view is supported by the strong theme of travel and quest, reminiscent of adventure and picaresque novels, which tend to employ such a dramatic structure. Frontispiece and first page of chapter one of an early English translation by T.
For this infraction, Candide is evicted from the castle, at which point he is captured by Bulgar Prussian recruiters and coerced into military service, where he is floggednearly executed, and forced to participate in a major battle between the Bulgars and the Avars an allegory representing the Prussians and the French.
Candide eventually escapes the army and makes his way to Holland where he is given aid by Jacques, an Anabaptistwho strengthens Candide's optimism. Soon after, Candide finds his master Pangloss, now a beggar with syphilis.
Pangloss is cured of his illness by Jacques, losing one eye and one ear in the process, and the three set sail to Lisbon. In Lisbon's harbor, they are overtaken by a vicious storm which destroys the boat.
Jacques attempts to save a sailor, and in the process is thrown overboard. The sailor makes no move to help the drowning Jacques, and Candide is in a state of despair until Pangloss explains to him that Lisbon harbor was created in order for Jacques to drown.
Only Pangloss, Candide, and the "brutish sailor" who let Jacques drown  survive the wreck and reach Lisbon, which is promptly hit by an earthquake, tsunami and fire that kill tens of thousands. The sailor leaves in order to loot the rubble while Candide, injured and begging for help, is lectured on the optimistic view of the situation by Pangloss.
Candide is flogged and sees Pangloss hanged, but another earthquake intervenes and he escapes. Her owners arrive, find her with another man, and Candide kills them both. Candide and the two women flee the city, heading to the Americas. Just then, an alcalde a Spanish fortress commander arrives, pursuing Candide for killing the Grand Inquisitor.
Leaving the women behind, Candide flees to Paraguay with his practical and heretofore unmentioned manservant, Cacambo. He explains that after his family was slaughtered, the Jesuits ' preparation for his burial revived him, and he has since joined the order. After lamenting all the people mainly priests he has killed, he and Cacambo flee.
In their flight, Candide and Cacambo come across two naked women being chased and bitten by a pair of monkeys. Candide, seeking to protect the women, shoots and kills the monkeys, but is informed by Cacambo that the monkeys and women were probably lovers.
Cacambo and Candide are captured by Oreillons, or Orejones; members of the Inca nobility who widened the lobes of their ears, and are depicted here as the fictional inhabitants of the area. Mistaking Candide for a Jesuit by his robes, the Oreillons prepare to cook Candide and Cacambo; however, Cacambo convinces the Oreillons that Candide killed a Jesuit to procure the robe.
Cacambo and Candide are released and travel for a month on foot and then down a river by canoe, living on fruits and berries.
The king points out that this is a foolish idea, but generously helps them do so. The pair continue their journey, now accompanied by one hundred red pack sheep carrying provisions and incredible sums of money, which they slowly lose or have stolen over the next few adventures.
Candide and Cacambo eventually reach Surinamewhere they split up: Candide's remaining sheep are stolen, and Candide is fined heavily by a Dutch magistrate for petulance over the theft.
Before leaving Suriname, Candide feels in need of companionship, so he interviews a number of local men who have been through various ill-fortunes and settles on a man named Martin. Candide, however, remains an optimist at heart, since it is all he knows.
After a detour to Bordeaux and Paristhey arrive in England and see an admiral based on Admiral Byng being shot for not killing enough of the enemy. Martin explains that Britain finds it necessary to shoot an admiral from time to time "pour l'encouragement des autres" to encourage the others.
Upon their arrival in VeniceCandide and Martin meet Paquette, the chambermaid who infected Pangloss with his syphilis, in Venice. Although both appear happy on the surface, they reveal their despair: Paquette has led a miserable existence as a sexual object, and the monk detests the religious order in which he was indoctrinated.
Candide and Martin visit the Lord Pococurante, a noble Venetian. Prior to their departure, Candide and Martin dine with six strangers who had come for Carnival of Venice. These strangers are revealed to be dethroned kings:You and/or other group members may: • demonstrate excitement • participate hesitantly • show tentative attachment to the group • discuss problems peripheral to the task • be uncomfortable and anxious about the new situation • accomplish minimal work This stage is complete when new members start thinking of themselves as part of a group.
