It included an appreciation by
Andre Maurois. Lowell Barr provided

Fortunately, I found my copy of Candide
before my French test.

Unfortunately, the only information I could
transfer from the text to the test was:
"It included an appreciation by
Andre Maurois. Lowell Barr provided
a 'sparkling, modern translation.'
The lovely and talented, Sheliah
Beckett illustrated Voltaire's novella with
grace and care, love and affection,
taste and refinement..."

The teacher had fooled us;
the sample questions were not
even remotely like the questions
on the test...

SAMPLE QUESTIONS:
1. Who included an appreciation?
2. Who provided a "sparkling, modern
translation?"
3. Who is lovely and talented?

Needless to say I studied the wrong material.
