Candide Chapter 29

By Voltaire

Chapter 29

  • Candide, Martin, Cacambo, Pangloss, and the Baron eventually find Cunégonde and the Old Woman.
  • Because no one has informed her, Cunégonde doesn’t know she has lost her beauty.
  • Candide goes to hug her and tries to hide his grimace.
  • The Baron refuses to let Candide marry his sister. Still. Not because of the stabbing incident, but rather because Candide doesn’t have a fancy family tree.
