9780199245925: Sterne, the Moderns, and the Novel

"Tristram is the Fashion," Sterne gleefully wrote of his masterpiece, Tristram Shandy, in 1760. This study reads Sterne's writing alongside other trends and texts of the time, showing how Sterne created and sustained his own vogue through self-conscious play on his rivals' work. The result is a highly original account of a major early novelist, and of the way his writing reveals and defines what one witness called "this Shandy-Age."

Review:


"Keymer [has] a gift for beautiful and sharply observant prose, and more than that, a quickness of intelligence that illuminates everything he touches on.... Keymer deepens our understanding both of the ways in which Sterne's experiments with novelistic resources are grounded in mid-eighteenth-century conventions and tropes and of how Sterne appeals far beyond the eighteenth century to our own absorption in the problems of representation and indeterminacy. In its breadth, elegance, and economy this is exemplary work."--Studies in English Literature 1500-1900


"In this learned and polemical study, Keymer puts Tristram Shandy back into its own age.... Keymer is the right man for the job: few scholars have read as widely, especially in the obscure novels of the 1750s.... This is a provocative, well researched, and very readable book. Highly recommended."--Choice

Descripción Oxford U.P., 2002. Estado de conservación: Brand New. This work demonstrates that, though "Tristram Shandy" anticipates later trends, the play on narrative representation, linguistic indeterminacy, unruliness of reading and the materiality of text, proclaim it to be firmly grounded in the conventions and tropes of mid-18th-century fiction.

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The author of Tristram Shandy (1759-67) is often seen as an anachronism - a belated exponent of learned-wit satire whose kinship is with Montaigne, or a proto-modernist whose narrative pyrotechnics anticipate Joyce. Yet to many contemporaries Sterne s writing was emphatically of its immediate time, a voguish compound of all things modern that seemed to typify, if not indeed constitute, a Shandy-Age . In this historicizing study, Thomas Keymer demonstrates the self-conscious imbrication of Tristram Shandy in the diverse literary culture of its extended moment. Not only absorbing but also updating Swift s Tale of a Tub, Sterne s text turns the satirical resources of Scriblerian writing on the post-Scriblerian literary marketplace, and above all on that quintessentially modern genre, the novel itself. For all its anticipation of later trends, his play on narrative representation, linguistic indeterminacy, the unruliness of reading and the materiality of text turns out to be firmly grounded in the conventions and tropes of mid-eighteenth-century fiction. Through the mechanisms of improvisatory serialization, Sterne could also engage with other new texts and trends as they continued to emerge, including Nonsense Club satire, the Ossianic vogue, and debates about the Seven Years War.
