    35“Misfortune has its uses”This is an enjoyable satirical novella dealing with the main character L’Ingénu the ingenuous the naïve He says what he thinks and does what he wants As a Huron coming from North America when he arrives in Britanny France he makes many comic misinterpretations due to his lack of awareness of European culture Though I appreciated the short chapters and relatively uick plot progression at times there was a lack of character development and I found it hard to sympathise with some of the characters I know Voltaire probably prioritised exploring philosophical ideas over developing his characters but I just wanted to know a bit about the characters’ backgrounds and motives Saying that it was still far entertaining than Voltaire’s ‘Lettres Philosophiues’ which I read last term Although that provided me with a background understanding of Voltaire’s philosophical ideologies it was uite dry whereas ‘L’Ingénu’ was narrative rather than non fiction and in that respect a bit interesting to follow The same ideas about government corruption and religious doctrine were there but in a much creative way Sometimes I felt a bit lost because I didn't fully understand all of the contemporary references to 18th century society particularly the stuff about Jansenism a Catholic theological movement At the time I'm sure readers would have understand that but nowadays it’s not as relevant so some of the understanding has been lost over time for me anyway But hopefully when I start my lectures for this text the lecturer will explain this

    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 naïve protagonist facing a confusingly unkind world Unfortunately it hasn’t aged well and I didn’t care for it

    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 towards new ideas mostly brought about by the advancements of science Just like Galileo who was executed after contradicting the bible by stating that the sun does not move around the earth Voltaire was fought for uestioning the origin of sin and proposing that man is a product of nature who should never be blamed for what is his inborn desires Voltaire uses Huron to explain to us his points and ideologies He is a man who follows his passions without any constraints He believes that one should take what one desires no matter the effect But this absolute freedom is what Fyodor Dostoyevsky euates to absolute tyranny Even Voltaire himself does not fully accept the idea He belives and states that there have to be laws to govern our conduct Therefore when Huron wakes up one morning and decides to marry St Yves his god mother The priors considers it a sin This prompts the debate of whether God intended for sin to exist in order for Grace to reign Voltaire believes that there cannot be sin without Grace Therefore sin is not a product of man's disobedience to God but was a creation of God himself Voltaire was a scientist as well as a philosopher He believed that human beings should be open to physical discoveries and inventions that occur Even if these inventions will somehow contradict what is in the bible He loudly contradicted Catholic Saints like Augustine and the Father of Roman Law Justinian Truth should be the light of the soul and not the soul being the light of ttuth as stated by some religious authorities Now where do I stand in all these? This is a very difficult uestion for me I believe that both parties have a point that we must accept God is necessary to us Voltaire through Huron demands that we let people worship God in his or her own way It begs the uetion which way is tha? If you are a christian you will beloeve that God has left us an instruction manual for our lives I strongly believe we should follow that In matters where physical evidence contradict the bible we should be open to those differences and say with Galileo that it is God's plan that we discover those things not for us to loose our faith in him but in order to do his will and marvel in his works This has been a very difficult review to write

    I must say given 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 going 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

    I wonder what Voltaire would think of my three star rating?? sorry not sorry


  8. Benoit Benoit says:

    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'Ingénu born Canadian as he discovers the European society and falls prey to it Indeed while l'Ingénu 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 grievances 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 good footnotes to fully grasp the historical context Warmly recommended to anyone still yearning for Candide stories

    Continuing my little marathon of Voltaire we have L'Ingénu another satirical novel written in 1767 that tells the story of Huron and his arrival in Brittany France where he finds his long lost uncle and aunt Huron obviously doesn't fit into the ideals and culture and interprets things from a naturalhuman point of view It's easy to see why works like Candide got 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 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 has gone 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'Ingénu is uite sad and pessimistic Enjoyed the book uite alot Every cloud has a silver lining But how many good folk in the world have been in a position to say There is no silver lining

    sometimes i get the feeling voltaire might've been really great 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 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?
