The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

by Laurence Sterne

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 1, Chapter 15 Summary

  • Once again, Tristram gets picky about the details: the marriage settlement says that Elizabeth Mollineux (Mrs. Shandy) gets to have her babies in London.
  • If she abuses the privilege by pretending to be pregnant, she has to give birth in the country. Unfortunately for Tristram (and Tristram's nose), she had a false alarm the previous September.
