    It would be better to say "lifestyles" since you can't prove that all the aristocrats lived exactly the same lifestyle!!

    The problem is repetition and boredome: "a mockery of the hierarchy of the aristocracy" -- too many words so close together with -y sound at the end. Try this: Voltaire’s representation of Candide’s father mocks the hierarchy of the aristocracy...

    There are still two -y sounding words, pretty close together. What revision can you think of to say the same thing but eliminate that repetition?
