Pastiche, imitation but also a continuation of Voltaire’s most celebrated tale, Candide, seconde partie, picks up many of the original’s themes.  Leibniz, Descartes and Newton are gently mocked; Pascal is accused of trying to make us hate humankind.  If it cannot begin to compare with Voltaire’s masterpiece, the tale is nonetheless an amusing and instructive imitation.
