Unlock the more straightforward side of The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman with this concise and insightful summary and analysis!

This engaging summary presents an analysis of The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by Laurence Sterne, a biography of the title character with a striking difference: he is not even born until the third of its nine volumes. Indeed, throughout this sprawling work, the narrator leads the reader on a series of lengthy digressions on subjects as diverse as philosophy, obstetrics and military strategy, and we learn relatively little about Tristram himself. The novel’s highly original approach to narrative, bawdy humour and incisive satire influenced numerous later writers, and it regularly features on lists of the greatest English-language novels ever written.
