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 12 Summary

  • Toby settles Le Fever's affairs. He gives the man's coat to Trim, and saves the sword for Le Fever's son (this guy's just going to be 'Le Fever' from here on out).
  • He sends Le Fever to school and then, when the boy is old enough, sends him off to war with his blessing and the sword. Toby promises that, whenever Le Fever comes back, Toby will continue to look out for him.
  • The story ends. Back to the present.
