About the Author

Voltaire (François-Marie Arouet) (1694—1778) was one of the key thinkers of the European Enlightenment. Of his many works, Candide remains the most popular.

Peter Constantine was awarded the 1998 PEN Translation Award for Six Early Stories by Thomas Mann and the 1999 National Translation Award for The Undiscovered Chekhov: Forty-three New Stories. Widely acclaimed for his recent translation of the complete works of Isaac Babel, he also translated Gogols Taras Bulba and Tolstoys The Cossacks for the Modern Library. His translations of fiction and poetry have appeared in many publications, including The New Yorker, Harpers, and Paris Review. He lives in New York City.
