Continuing my little marathon of Voltaire we have L "Ing nu another satirical novel written in 1767 that tells the story of Huron and his arrival in Brittany "nu another satirical novel written in 1767 that tells the story of Huron and his arrival in Brittany where he finds his long lost uncle and aunt huron obviously doesn lost uncle and aunt Huron obviously doesn fit into the ideals and culture and interprets things from a naturalhuman point of view It s easy to see why works like Candide ot Voltaire into trouble but the things said in a book like that was way subtle in my opinion Here it just straight out calls people and catholics hypocrites There s a couple scenes in here that are pretty funny Huron s uncle Undiluted: Rediscovering the Radical Message of Jesus gives him a Bible and it leads to a funny scene where they want Huron to be be baptized and so Huron waits in a stream and everyone thinks he hasone missing and when they finally find him he points out that nowhere in the Bible does a baptism take place in a church In a turn about from the optimistic ending in Candide the ending of L Ing nu is uite sad and pessimistic Enjoyed the book uite alot Every cloud has a silver lining But how many Rudram in Tamil good folk in the world have been in a position to say There is no silver lining I must sayiven what I was expecting for this I m rather disappointed In the last few days I ve been reading through some of the works of Voltaire and while I indeed enjoyed the 3 others read previously it was along with Candide this novella that I expected to enjoy most And awhile it may have seemed to be the case upon reading the first half of the story the second half was where I found the tale oing to a place I didn t enjoyConsidering that the first half with it s bawdy and rather obvious but hilarious satirizing of religious doctrines literal believers of religions and of the societygovernment in Voltaire s day All of this combined together made it to be one as enjoyable as Micromegas But after the second half starts it turns into a combination of two things that being a satire of the persecution of Jensenism a common deed in his day And an almost dulcin sweet rip off of a melodrama Now while they may work as one of their own the two put together don t exactly workBut judgement s aside I can still say the novella was at least of an average uality but I must say for what I was expecting the disappointment was rather unforeseen This short little satire is typical Voltaire with its mockery of the customs of both the church and state It s reminiscent of Candide with its na ve protagonist facing a confusingly unkind world Unfortunately it hasn t aged well and I didn t car.

E for it sometimes i et the feeling voltaire might ve been really reat if he d been just a little earnest and a little less oh look at me i m voltaire i m so french and witty ooh la
oh look at me i m voltaire i m so french and witty ooh la authority is bad he approaches this straightforwardness sometimes but always oes back to that other side
always oes back to that other side 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 I wonder what Voltaire would think of my three star rating sorry not sorry Surprisingly ood L Ing nu The Sincere Huron Voltaire L Ing nu is a satirical novella by the French writer Voltaire published in "1767 IT TELLS THE STORY OF "It tells the story of Huron called Child of Nature who after having crossed the Atlantic to England crosses into Brittany France in the 1690s Upon arrival a prior notices depictions of his brother and sister in law whom they deduce to be the Huron s parents making him French 2009 1333 111 1344 142 1388 143 1392 9789642575602 18 Another brilliant and fast paced satire from Voltaire Although not as epic this novella is a philosophical adventure in the vein of Candide and still reads fresh two hundred fifty three years later Through the sharp cynical eyes of Voltaire the story centers around the journey of its main protagonist l Ing nu born Canadian as he discovers the European society and falls prey to it Indeed while l Ing nu remains pure at heart having been raised in a free and kind society he has to learn and adapt uickly as he constantly finds himself in new predicaments pursuing his love interest These predicaments are the perfect opportunity for Voltaire to lay out his rievances towards European society such as social hierarchy and ethnocentrism Perhaps one could even draw parallels to the journey that a Canadian might experience today while living in Europe I would have wished for a symbolic ending like in Candide but perhaps the lack of satisfactory ending is in itself a motifI would suggest reading an edition with ood footnotes to fully rasp the historical context Warmly recommended to anyone still yearning for Candide stories When I started reading this book I wondered what was Voltaire s point to us I was aware of the uneasy relationship between himself and the catholic church The protestants were also so much disagreeable with his ideas He was outspoken against conventional religion I believe there animosity towards each other was due to the unyielding nature of the catholic church to.
