I had very briefly blogged a link to the Tristram Shandy page of the above site, but apprently never followed the rabbit hole upwards. *Excellent* resource.
More on Tristram Shandy / Laurence Sterne:
The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gent. (1759-67) (complete text online).
SparkNotes: Tristram Shandy.
tristramshandyweb.it (don't worry mostly in english...very academic and thorough)
highest quality images here.
finally some obvious links: wikipedia entry for Tristram and Sterne, and via that, an upcoming film version, a 1.1M ZIP of the illustrated hypertext of the books.
# One of the meta-statements Sterne seems to be making is he has no respect for your time, nor your desire for narrative cohesion -- and why should he? Defiant, Sterne is. Very defiant. Cool.
