The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 4, Chapter 15 Summary

  • This would be a good time, Tristram thinks, for a chapter on sleep—except that writing on sleep is hard, and he's no good at coming up with fancy sayings like other people.
  • It's best if he just quotes Montaigne: he likes to be woken from sleep so he can appreciate it more.
