The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 5, Chapter 17 Summary

  • No worries—the accident wasn't too bad. In fact, it happens to many men by choice rather than accident.
  • What happened was that the chamber-maid had forgotten to leave something under the bed, so Susannah suggested that Tristram does something that involves climbing up on the window-seat. But Susannah forgot that nothing was well-hung in the family, so down comes the window and off comes…
  • Susannah flees to Toby's house.
