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 6, Chapter 11 Summary

  • Yorick appears to have preached Le Fever's funeral sermon. He had a habit of making notes on sermons—this one's really good; this one's only okay; this one will suit any occasion. Some of his notes are confusing, because he uses musical terms that don't make sense in a theological context.
  • Anyway, the sermon upon Le Fever was one of Yorick's favorites: he wrote "Bravo!" at the end (although very small, so as not to appear to be bragging. Also, he struck through it later on).
