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 41 Summary

  • Mr. Shandy is all torn up about the fact that truth is so difficult to make out.
  • This brings Toby back to his favorite topic—fortifications! Mr. Shandy has a brief moment of rage, but Toby doesn't really care. He thinks that noses are different because God intends it to be so. Budding scientist Mr. Shandy needs it to be a little more complicated than that.
