(Les Oreilles du comte de Chesterfield et le chapelain Goudman)
Published by R. Carlile, 135 Fleet Street, London.1826.
Lord Chesterfield’s ears prove to be a grave inconvenience to a young clergyman. This satirical tale also discusses freedom of the will and whether the soul exists.
This tale was not included in the Morley/Fleming edition of “The Works of Voltaire”—presumably because some parts were considered too indelicate.
