The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 5, Chapter 28

By Laurence Sterne

Book 5, Chapter 28

  • Mr. Shandy assures Yorick, who's just entered, that everything is fine, although it's sure that Tristram is an unlucky child. He even relays some history and theology of circumcision as Toby and Trim enter. Yorick criticizes angry priests and then reads a little as an example.
