The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

  

by Laurence Sterne

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 3, Chapter 8 Summary

  • Obadiah really wanted to hear some tunes, so he tied down the instruments with his hatband. Good call, Obadiah…except the knots are so tight that Dr. Slop can't get them undone.
  • If only it had taken longer, Tristram laments. If it had just taken a little longer for Dr. Slop to undo the knots, maybe his nose would have survived unscathed.
