Описание: 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.
Описание: Introduction and Notes by Robert Folkenflik
Rich in playful double entendres, digressions, formal oddities, and typographical experiments, The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman provoked a literary sensation when it first appeared in England in a series of volumes from 1759 to 1767. An ingeniously structured novel (about writing a novel) that fascinates like a verbal game of chess, Tristram Shandy is the most protean and playful English novel of the eighteenth century and a celebration of the art of fiction; its inventiveness anticipates the work of Joyce, Rushdie, and Fuentes in our own century. This Modern Library Paperback is set from the nine-volume first edition from 1759.

Описание: Celebrated in its own day as the progenitor of "a school of sentimental writers", "A Sentimental Journey" (1768) has outlasted its many imitators because of the humour and mischievous eroticism within. Setting out to journey to France and Italy, Mr Yorick gets little further than Lyons but finds much to appreciate, in contrast to contemporary travel writers whom Sterne satirizes in the figures of Smelfungus and Mundungus. A master of ambiguity and double entendre, Sterne is nevertheless as concerned as his peers with exploring the nature of virtue; unlike other writers of sentimental fiction Sterne insists on the inseparability of desire and feeling. This new edition includes a selection from "The Sermons of Mr Yorick", which shed light on the concerns of the "Journey", "The Journal to Eliza", which records Sterne's feelings as he languishes for the company of Eliza Draper, and "A Political Romance", the satire on a local ecclesiastical squabble that was the catalyst for Sterne's literary career.

When I had fished my dinner and drank the King of France's health, to satisfy my mind that I bore him no spleen, but, on the contrary, high honor for the humanity of his temper, -- I rose up an inch taller for the accommodation.
-- No -- said I -- the Bourbon is by no means a cruel race: they may be misled, like other people; but there is a mildness in their blood. As I acknowledged this, I felt a suffusion of a finer kind upon my cheek -- more warm and friendly to man, than what Burgundy (at least of two livres a bottle, which was such as I had been drinking) could have produced.
-- Just God said I, kicking my portmanteau aside, what is there in this world's goods which should sharpen our spirits and make so many kind-hearted brethren of us fall out so cruelly as we do by the way?
