Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mr. Yorick, the sentimental traveller, refrains from the customary reflections on monuments and landscapes. Instead, he focuses on his sweet and affectionate emotions, experiencing them everywhere he goes and with every creature who crosses his path — from bursts of sympathy for a caged bird and an abused donkey, to bonhomie among peasants at dinner and flirtation with women of every social degree. Closer in spirit to a novel than a travelogue, Mr. Yorick's account of his wanderings satirizes conventional travel books, and his comic mishaps along the path to tender emotions are as much a critique of pure sentiment as they are an exploration of human sympathy. Unabridged republication of the classic 1768 edition.

Synopsis:

Laurence Sterne drew upon his experiences in the 1760s to create this fictional travelogue. Generations have delighted in the narrative of Mr. Yorick, the Sentimental Traveller, who seeks tender moments but chiefly finds misadventures.
