The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 5, Chapter 15 Summary

  • Tristram explains that, if the book was a farce, then that last chapter would have finished the first act and this chapter would start off with some music. He then proceeds to write some music: "twaddle diddle, tweddle diddle,--twiddle diddle,--twodle diddle,--twuddle diddle,--prut-tut—krish—krash—krush" (5.15.2). No one's winning a Grammy award here.
