The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 7, Chapter 31 Summary

  • When a man is young and has a mushy brain, stories of separated lovers sound pretty decent. Tristram remembers one of these stories, and says that Lyons has a tomb of two lovers that he's always had a soft spot for. So he's jazzed about seeing it. But just as he walks out of the gate, he's stopped.
