Sterne by Wolfgang Iser
Tristram Shandy (Landmarks of World Literature)

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Without a beginning and without an end, Tristram Shandy moves in many different directions, defying the conventional expectations of its readers. Wolfgang Iser shows how Sterne exploits the philosophy of his day and its cognitive deficiencies, using digression, humour and play to convey experience of subjectivity, and implicitly to expose the traditional concept of the self.
