This paper discusses the land Eldorado that Voltaire has created in the novel Candide and how this utopia differs from others such as Francis Bacon.
Voltaire gives us another piece to add to the tradition of utopias that had been forming for a few hundred years prior. Francis Bacon’s New Atlantis utopia deviated from the common model for a utopia, and Voltaire follows the deviation even more. The two utopias are similar in that each is difficult, if not impossible, to reach without higher intervention. Society had latched on to Bacon’s model and thus Voltaire satirically mimics it.
