This volume brings together Voltaire’s writings from 1750-1752, penned before his break with Frederick the Great marked the end of his stay in Berlin. Ranging from philosophical poetry to military strategy and satire, these texts and commentaries reveal the full extent of Voltaire’s intellectual interests. They also highlight his place within an Enlightenment network of (often temporary) allies, such as Frederick the Great, and sworn enemies, notably La Beaumelle and Maupertuis.
