The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 1, Chapter 14 Summary

  • Tristram checks out his mother's marriage settlement (like a prenup), which leads him to ruminate on how difficult writing is. The guy's been writing for six weeks and hasn't even been born yet—who can blame him?
  • To catch up with himself he resolves to publish two books of his life every year.
