L’Ingénu (French: [lɛ̃ʒeny]) is a satirical novella by the French writer Voltaire, published in 1767. It tells the story of a Huron called “Child of Nature” who, after having crossed the Atlantic to England, crosses into Brittany, France in the 1690s. Upon arrival, a prior notices depictions of his brother and sister-in-law, whom they deduce to be the Huron’s parents – making him French.
The story also criticizes the contemporary corruption in the French government. First, the Child of Nature, on his way to receive accolades for helping fight off a British amphibious assault, is wrongly imprisoned as a Jansenist after showing sympathy to the plight of those fleeing religious persecution. He spends a great deal of time in prison until his lover – having been sent to a convent for four years – journeys to Versailles to find out his plight. To do so, she must use back-channels, such as the wife of a confessor. Ultimately, to secure her lover’s release, she must succumb to the advances of a government minister.
