Summary
  • "This learned and hugely useable new Sentimental Journey provides a wealth of editorial materials that will add to the enjoyment and understanding of readers of all kinds. The approachable introduction is wisely informative not only on A Sentimental Journey but also on Sterne himself, the rise of the novel, travel literature, sensibility, genre, gender and the work's influence and afterlife. The explanatory footnotes are thorough and discreetly scholarly. The text is accompanied by an outstandingly rich and pertinent selection of contextualising contemporary documentation. Turner's edition of A Sentimental Journey will make Slerne's second novel many new friends." Marcus Walsh, University of Liverpool
  • "Katherine Turner's comprehensive and superbly written introduction, together with the rich contextual materials, make this the most useful edition of Sterne's Sentimental Journey in print today. Highly recommended for specialists, students, and general readers--anyone who might enjoy Sterne's irreverent brilliance." James G. Basker, Barnard College, Columbia University
  • The quintessential novel of sentiment, A Sentimental Journey masquerades as the fragmentary travel journal of Parson Yorick, a whimsical and amorous Englishman abroad. Accompanied through Paris and the provinces by his loyal French valet, Yorick enjoys a variety of sentimental and often comic encounters with a lively range of French characters. The novel is also punctuated by passages of self-conscious reflection on questions of personal and national identity, slavery and freedom, poverty and inequality
  • Appendices include material on sensibility in philosophy and literature and on eighteenth-century travel writing, as well as excerpts from Sterne's other writings and examples of the novel's critical reception, imitation, and illustration. --Book Jacket
