“I wish either my father or my mother, or indeed both of them, as they were in duty both equally bound to it, had minded what they were about when they begot me; had they duly consider'd how much depended upon what they were then doing;—that not only the production of a rational Being was concerned in it, but that possibly the happy formation and temperature of his body, perhaps his genius and the very cast of his mind;—and, for aught they knew to the contrary, even the fortunes of his whole house might take their turn from the humours and dispositions which were then uppermost;—Had they duly weighed and considered all this, and proceeded accordingly,—I am verily persuaded I should have made a quite different figure in the world, from that in which the reader is likely to see me.”
“Tristram Shandy” by Laurence Sterne was first published in nine volumes between 1759 and 1767. It is one of the greatest comic novels in English. Laurence Sterne’s “Tristram Shandy” is also a forerunner of many narrative devices used by authors such as James Joyce and Virginia Woolf.
