The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

by Laurence Sterne

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

  • Toby's actually got a great example of how terrible this one particular army incident was. Trim interjects tearfully, as he remembers another cruel misfortune: the inquisition that got his brother.
  • Mr. Shandy starts to feel a little like he might be overreacting. In the meantime, Toby compliments Trim on his compassion and says he'll always be taken care of.
