The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 6, Chapter 34

By Laurence Sterne

Book 6, Chapter 34

  • Tristram begins again, saying that he told his reader in Chapter 31 that Toby was depressed by the end of the war, and almost gave up his hobby—or rather, his hobby almost gave him up.
  • From March through November, there were no battles for him to stage. Finally he and Trim start it up again, deciding how to demolish the town.
