Voltaire was a hugely prolific writer of short prose works. René Pomeau, in a rare bon mot, writes that Voltaire is ‘interminably brief’. Scholars don’t quite know what to do with this vast part of Voltaire’s œuvre and they remain little studied. In the late eighteenth century to the late nineteenth century editors bundled these works together in volumes called ‘Mélanges’.
