In Ten Volumes Complete, Containing, 1. The Life and Opinions of Tristam Shandy, Gent. II. A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy. III. Sermons. IV. Letters. With a Life of the Author, Written by Himself
The work that assured Sterne an everlasting place in English literature. It humorously chronicles the life of Tristram Shandy; this comic account is intertwined with his thoughts and philosophies regarding various issues. The novel is typographically very unusual in a style that is Sterne's own all the way.
