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 9 Summary

  • Dedication for sale! But the dedication isn't actually dedicated to anyone, so Tristram asks if anyone wants to buy it.
  • If anyone wants it, he can pay 50 guineas to Mr. Dodsley and Tristram will see that his name is inserted into the next edition.
  • In the meantime, he dedicates the book to the moon, since it drives people mad and consequently will make people like his book.
