The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman (Penguin Classics)

by

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman (Penguin Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The comic masterpiece Tristram Shandy is often regarded as a progenitor of the twentieth century novel. Within the resolutely tangled strands of this narrative is the life, from conception, of a gentleman cursed at birth with the name Tristram. Though everything occurs between parlor and garden, Tristram's excitable father, bewildered mother, and Uncle Toby provide ample opportunity for the digressions and madcap events that structure this seminal novel.

Synopsis:

Laurence Sterne's masterpiece of bawdy humour and rich satire defies any attempt to categorize it. Part novel, part digression, its disordered narrative interweaves the birth and life of the unfortunate "hero" Tristram Shandy, the eccentric philosophy of his father and the amours of Uncle Toby.

Synopsis:

Edited by Joan New and Melvyn New.

About the Author

Irish-born Laurence Sterne graduated from Cambridge in 1737 and took holy orders, becoming a prebend in York Cathedral. His masterpiece, The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy made him a celebrity but ill-health necessitated recuperative travel and A Sentimental Journey grew out of seven-month trip through France and Italy. He died the year it was published, 1768.
