The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 8, Chapter 15 Summary

  • Tristram imagines himself burning like a candle from the top down. This prompts him to remember a conversation about the location of the "blind gut" (which means a passage with one closed end) between Dr. Slop, Toby, and Mr. Shandy on the night that Mrs. Shandy was giving birth to Tristram.
