This is an irony because as one of the people who tend to think in one way, it was unexpected to have giant apes turn out to be human's lovers, not danger or terror, This is satirizing how people tend to think and view things in one way, instead of being open to other variables.
This is an irony because the first time I read this part, it was so unexpected and surprising for me. I thought everything was going fine and something good was about to happen because Candide and Cunégonde's brother were so happy to see each other. However quickly the situation changed and Candide killed the brother., This is satirizing how people (for example, me in this case) do not expect the unexpected. I think it is also showing that it is always good to be ready or be aware of the fact that anything can happen anytime.
I think this is a hyperbole, because just like the quote 'I'm so hungry I could eat a horse', the robe being worth more than the magnificence of Westphalia is an exaggeration in description.
It think this is an allusion because this phrases made me think about that those worse things could be. The book does not go deeply into it or explain at all, but it still made me think what kind of things they were that Cacambo had seen.
It never was explained in the book but there seemed to be a lot of things that Cacambo was able to do. For example, always give good advice, know a certain place very well, and now he even speaks the unfamiliar Orellion language. How can Cacambo do all this? What has he been through before? The paragraph is thought-provoking, and therefore I think it is an allusion.
This is an oxymoron because it is saying how Candide owns a lot of treasure, when the readers all know that Candide and the character do not own much., This is satirizing how certain things and hope can change peoples' thoughts and actions very easily. This is not in all case really a bad thing, but I think Voltaire is trying to say that it is also not good to be too easily controlled.
I think this is an understatement because even though Cacambo knows that this news may be shocking to Candide, Cacambo describes this case so simply, as if it wasn't a big deal. I think this new could have used a little bit more expression and detail., This may satirize how people describe things the way they see it, with as much expression they see fit in using to describe the scene. For example, Cacambo explained the scene with a lack of expression, because to him this scene was not very shocking.
This is the scene when Cunégonde, THE Cunégonde's own brother has been killed by none other than Candide. Candide has killed his lovely Cunégonde's brother, and I believe there should have been a greater, a more grand death. Since there wasn't and he died with two last sentences, I think this is an understatement., I think this is satirizing how some people do not know that fact that death can come anytime anywhere, and that when someone is dead, that is just it. There is nothing left than a dead body, and so that is why people must be aware.
