The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman By Laurence Sterne An experimental novel far ahead of its time, "Tristram Shandy" was originally published from 1759 to 1767 in nine volumes. Shandy narrates the story of his life, beginning with his conception and diverting to his family, particularly his unconventional father Walter and his gentle Uncle Toby. Shandy cannot explain anything concisely, and Sterne utilizes many narrative devices to accommodate Shandy's digressions on countless subjects, especially human disconnection and his doubts about truly knowing himself. His disorderly account is rich in minor characters, especially Dr. Slop, Toby's servant Corporal Trim, and the parson Yorick. Despite being full of coarse humor and satire, Sterne's work was immediately and wildly popular in London, perhaps because it disregarded all the conventions of fiction, explored all of its potential, and dryly expressed its restrictions. We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff. Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.
