Part I: Question: Write a short essay on Voltaire’s final stance on optimism & his treatment and use of historical details by the end of his satire when his characters end up near Constantinople & start living together. When answering keep in mind the moment in Chapter 24 when Candide meets back up with the woman who gave Pangloss his disease and she’s with a boyfriend, which causes an observation that “all is illusion and disaster” (416). Does this statement that all is illusion & disaster in a cruel world seem to you to be this satiric author’s final stance toward optimism. Give details to back up your claims & cite page numbers using MLA parenthetical citation. (60 points)

Submission Instructions: Write at least 2-2 ½ pages, double spaced, using TN Roman or a standard 12 pt font.

 

Part II Question: Read the following passage from Saikaku’s “Life of a Sensuous Woman” then write a brief response & back up your answer with textual details from the work overall: “There was no longer anything at all keeping me from entering the mountain of enlightenment on the far side. I would leave all my world attachments behind. I made up my mind to pray, enter the water, and be reborn (667). What in your opinion do these two authors Saikaku and Voltaire from very different parts of the world have in common theme-wise & in terms of their overall moral & ethical message? Give examples of how their moral and historical concerns are the same or different by the time one finishes reading the end of their overall narratives and stories. (20 points)

Submission Instructions: Write at least 200 words, double spaced, using TN Roman or a standard 12 pt font.
