Candide seemed to be a very nave person but he wasnt what you would call a bad person What I dont understand is how he was casted out from a fine castle and he was basically forgotten about Even though Candide and Cunegonde were caught being intimate whith each other was this worth his emancipation And what was so unique about the differences of Candides seventy-one quarterings to Cunegondes seventy-two quarterings Does it really make that much of a difference An issue that I cam still trying to deal with is why Candide was treated so badly in many of the places he visited For one example is when Candide was amongst the Bulgars At first he was a hero and then before you knew it he was being flogged because he dedided to walk around on his own two legs I feel as if the Bulgars had duped Candide My reason being is because since he was given money he was now their property Also he was considered a Bulwark and he was now even a part of their army too Another example is in the town of Lisbon To what magnitude of deception was it worth for Candides whipping Just for listening with an air of approval This is quite bizarre My third and last example is the brother of Cunegonde who was the commander Here the author takes us back to the quarterings This really must have had a great significant value especially if Cunegonde had one more quartering than Candide And even though Candide saved Cunegonde out of the arms of an inquisitor and a Jew it still wasnt good enoughCandide seems to get or aquire the bad ends of the stick And that is why he is nave in one way He is a rather kind hearted person but the chips are always down in his favor Candide being nave brings me to other envisions in his life One wxample
