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 3, Chapter 4 Summary

  • The mind and body are connected: like a coat and its lining, you can't rumple one without messing up the other. Certainly Tristram has gotten rumpled lately, with the bad reviews of his books. Not to worry: if the critics come after him again, he's going to maintain a good temper.
