    O génio de Voltaire produziu mais uma maravilhosa novela. Nesta o filósofo crítica as grandes civilizações e os seus monarcas. Relata a história da princesa da Babilónia que devido a sua formosura possui muitos pretendentes. Para desposa-la eles tem de prestar uma série de provas. Só que nenhum deles saí vencedor. Apenas um jovem pastor é corajoso o suficiente para ganhar o coração da princesa.A donzela parte em busca do seu amado pelos vários países do mundo. É através dessa vi [...]

    Candide veya Zadig kadar parlak bir eser olmasa da; Voltaire ile yine mitolojiden tarihe pek çok bereketli pınardan beslenen büyülü bir yolculuğa çıkacaksınız.

    Masal tadında bir Voltaire kitabı daha. Fakat bu kez sonu oldukça tuhaf bir hızla bitiyor.

    "Los habitantes de Galia son los niños, y me gusta jugar con ellos"La princesa de Babilonia es un cuento fantástico, un poco simple e infantil que narra las desventuras de Formosanta, princesa de Babilonia en busca de su amado Amazan.Es un cuento corto y sencillo de entender y entretenido cuyo objetivo principal es la crítica de la sociedad europea moderna. El viaje sirve para describir las costumbres, sobre todo sociales y políticas de cada país de Europa como Francia, España, Alemania, I [...]

    This book is sure one of the worst works of Voltaire. It is very simple for being considered as a philosophical work (it contains no philosophy in it but only satire). What is more this work is based on one of his eariler works; "Candide". My point is that if you read "Candide" it is useless to read this one.

    I can comfortably say that this is one of Voltaire's books which I have read and understood fully. And that makes me proud. Not that I never understood some of his previous works, but lets jist say they were not easy to grasp. One thing they have in common is there profound moral stories. Here Voltaire narrates to us they story of a princess who is being wooed by three kings and one ordinary man. However, she is not lucky enough to find her Knight. As the oracle predicted, she will not fall in l [...]

    Some say this is a work of philosophy, if so then so is every fairytale ever told and every Gulliver-esque satire ever penned.It starts off like ancient myth or history, but aesthetically more akin to 'Gods of Egypt' than say 'Moses'. After a while it gives up on this and becomes more of a satire. Most of the satire is still understandable but some is a little hard to decipher.The fairytale love story elements take a bit of an interesting turn towards the end but not enough. And then its all ove [...]

    I read this in Voltaire's Romances in One Volume. Ostensibly it's a romantic comedy, but Voltaire takes a few opportunities to poke at the histories of eastern and western countries and lifestyles. He seems quite taken by Catherine the Great, and favors the eastern culture over western. Much of his satire was lost on me because my understanding of history is so scant. A little Voltaire goes a long way. I will go read something else before continuing with "The White Bull."

    Read it a long time ago and I hope one day I will have the chance to read it again. Till this day I remember how Voltaire described the characters. It inspired a lot of my writings and thinking. If you are patient enough to weigh, deliberate, and digest every single notion that you read, I think this book is worth the shot.


    Vera Novitsky

    Понравилось меньше, чем другие вещи Вольтера. Слишком много обобщений и преувеличений. Отдельно возмутили похвалы Екатерине Великой, показывающие, что в политике Вольтер не разбирался или не хотел разбираться. Когда он пишет о вещах, с которыми я сама незнакома, все отличн [...]


    TarasProkopyuk

    Это ещё одна весьма хорошая работа Вольтера. Она довольно типична философским работам автора. В ней как всегда Вольтер стремиться не только открыть глаза читателей намного шире, но и приводит хорошие примеры для подражания.

    شاهزاده خانم بابل همراه با چند داستان دیگر از ولتر توسط ناصح ناطق به فارسی برگردانده شده و بنگاه ترجمه و نشر کتاب آن را منتشر کرده است.

    This story was really interesting and engaging. I loved the fact that it was written like a fairytale: it was full of noble princes and princesses, mythical animals and grand adventures.

    Quando Voltaire decide fazer uma fantasia multiculturalo resultado acaba me agradando.
