Tristram Shandy: An Authoritative Text (Norton Critical Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Obvious errors have been corrected, but most of the conventions of eighteenth-century printing and all of Sterne's brilliant exploitations and expansions of those conventions have been retained. Background information includes a chronology of Sterne's life and comments from his letters pertaining to the composition of the novel and to his theory of fiction. Responses by Sterne's contemporaries--among them Walpole, Goldsmith, Richardson, and Johnson--begin the selection of critical materials. Early-nineteenth-century assessments by Coleridge, Hazlitt, Scott, and Thackeray are followed by twentieth-century critical essays by Lodwick Hartley, D. W. Jefferson, Toby A. Olshin, Wayne Booth, William Bowman Piper, Martin Price, Jean Jacques Mayoux, Richard A. Lanham, Sigurd Burkhardt, J. Paul Hunter, Charles Parish, and Howard Anderson.

Synopsis:

Sterne's novel about an eighteenthcentury English country gentleman who recalls the unfortunate and amusing events of his birth and boyhood is supplemented by criticism since the eighteenth century.

Synopsis:

This edition of "the most modern of eighteenth-century novels" reprints the text of the first edition of the volumes of as they appeared from December 1759 to January 1767, including the two illustrations by Hogarth.

Synopsis:

With its ingenious structure and its exuberant pretense of being an autobiography, Tristram Shandy fascinates like a verbal game of chess.
