Description

In annotated texts based on those of the acclaimed Florida Edition of The Works of Laurence Sterne, this edition features the two works Sterne produced in the final year of his illness-plagued life: the witty, bawdy, pathetic, and thoughtful A Sentimental Journey through France and Italy; and Continuation of the Bramine’s Journal, Sterne’s correspondence to a twenty-two-year-old married Englishwoman living in India (“a Diary,” as he put it, “of the miserable feelings of a person separated from a Lady for whose Society he languish’d”). Together, these mutually illuminating works offer rich insight into their author’s hopes, fears, loves, longings, and philosophy as he prepared to face death and judgment. Excerpts from related texts provide context for understanding the title works in relation to the earlier writings and life of this exuberant yet subtle genius of eighteenth-century English literature. show more
