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 8, Chapter 20 Summary

  • Trim continues telling the story that prompted the disagreement, about his own knee-wound. A young woman takes him in her cart and then brings him to her father's house.
  • Trim gives them a little money, and then realizes that the young woman can't be the peasant's daughter but is more likely a nun. She nurses him and he almost falls in love with her, but it can't actually be love.
  • The whole time she tends him, he never *******************. Both Toby and the hidden Mrs. Wadman think that's very strange.
