The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 6, Chapter 3 Summary

  • Meanwhile, Dr. Slop has prepared a bandage for Tristram's mutilated penis. Susannah, however, has a sudden fit of modesty and refuses to hold the candle so Dr. Slop can see to apply it.
  • Dr. Slop finally convinces her to hold the light but look away. Well, that's a recipe for disaster: she sets his wig on fire, he throws the bandage in her face, and she tosses a pan of medicine back at him.
  • No one, we want to point out, has managed to do anything about poor Tristram's penis.
