The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

by Laurence Sterne

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 5, Chapter 28 Summary

  • Mr. Shandy assures Yorick, who's just entered, that everything is fine, although it's sure that Tristram is an unlucky child. He even relays some history and theology of circumcision as Toby and Trim enter. Yorick criticizes angry priests and then reads a little as an example.
