9781440063077: The Life and Times of Laurence Sterne (Classic Reprint)
Présentation de l'éditeur :

CHAPTER I BIRTH AND EDUCATION 1713·1736 TnE great humourist whose life I have undertaken to relate anew, would have been amused by a serious attempt to discover him among his ancestors. l-insty records preserv~ religiously by his Yorkshire neighbours, that they might the more readily boast the achievements of a great-grandfather, interested him, it is true, greatly; but only because they fur: nished matter for jest. His Tristram Shandy is, as all readers of it know, a burlesque history of a typical English family (much Like Ste~e's own) that gained its rank in the, time of Henry the Eighth, and subsequently sank under the disgrace of fiat noses and inauspicious names. The Shandys could claim in the sixteenth century, says Sterne with near reference to himself, "no less than a dozen alchymi<;ts," whose souls passed on, a century or two later, into an archbishop, a 'Welsh judge, "some three or four aldermen", and eventually into a mountebank.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Life and Times of Laurence Sterne This book aims to present, within reasonable compass, the personal history of Laurence Sterne, along with some account of the numerous men and women with whom he associated at home and abroad. Hence it has been called, after an old fashion for similar biographies, The Life and Times of Laurence Sterne. The title-page should be sufficient warning to the reader not to expect here a series of essays on the different aspects of Sterne s humour, or elaborate comparisons between Sterne and the humourists before and since his time. Masterly disquisitions of this kind we have already from Bagehot, Traill, and Watts-Dunton, not to mention briefer critical opinions from Thackeray, Coleridge, and Carlyle. My main purpose has been biographical. The questions ever before me have been: What sort of man was Sterne? How did he conduct himself in the days of his obscurity and after he had come into his fame? What did he do and what did he say? What books did he read? What were his pastimes? and what were his pleasures? Who were his friends? and who were his enemies, if he had any? And what did they say or think of him? In a word, wherein lay the secret of the man whose speech and conduct filled the imaginations of all who knew him intimately, whether at York, London, or Paris? These questions, forsooth, would be without much interest, as Nepos once remarked in a similar case, were not Sterne the author of two books which give him a large place in modern literature, perhaps by the side of Rabelais and Cervantes. Certainly the publication of Tristram Shandy and of the Sentimental Journey must be kept in mind as the great incidents in Sterne s life. Towards them and his other works must converge all personal details. It is only because of these books that a biographer can surely count upon a curiosity to know something about the personality of him who wrote them.
