The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 5, Chapter 1 Summary

  • Oh yeah, Tristram wasn't going to write anymore. Why? Because everything ends up being borrowed and copied from something elseā€”like the fragment on whiskers, which he now can't write because he read a fragment from another text about whiskers, with a digressive story about the queen of Navarre and her courtiers.
  • He's pretty much a perpetual plagiarist, whether he likes it or not.
