Voltaire *

a.k.a. Francois Marie Arouet

Author Code: FVOL

Born: Nov. 21, 1694 - Paris, France

Died: May 30, 1778 - Paris, France

Voltaire was educated by the Jesuits at the college at Louis-le-Grand in Paris. He began his writing early and landed in the Bastille on two occasions for his satirical works and religious opinions. He spent 1726 to 1729 in exile in England. On his return to France he published Charles XII (1731) and produced a number of plays. In 1734, he published his Lettres philosophiques, which was influenced by his time in England, and which was critical of the established political and religious institutions. He was forced to leave Paris again and fled to Cirey in Champagne, where he spent the next 10 years. In 1750, Voltaire travelled to Prussia and in 1754 he settled in Switzerland where he stayed for most of the rest of his life. Other works included Le Siecle de Louis XIV (1751), Micromegas (1752), Zadig (1747) and Candide (1758), his best-known work.
