Happy, therefore, at Candide & Zadig book in escaping from calumny! Candide discovers Pangloss and the baron in a Turkish chain gang. Zadig should be submissive to Fate, he continues, and should return to Babylonia, advice which he follows.

Candide's world has many ridiculous and meaningless elements, but human beings are not totally deprived of the ability to make sense out of it. He recovers, but is tricked by an actress into giving away much of his fortune and is eventually arrested by the police, who are suspicious of all strangers.

Many critics have concluded that one minor character or another is portrayed as having the right philosophy. I'm mighty glad to make the sell
