A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy is a novel by Laurence Sterne, written as Sterne was facing death. In 1765 Laurence Sterne travelled through France and Italy as far south as Naples,... More > and after returning determined to describe his travels from a sentimental point of view. The novel can be seen as an epilogue to the possibly unfinished work The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman, and also as an answer to Tobias Smollett's decidedly unsentimental Travels through France and Italy.

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman (or, more briefly, Tristram Shandy) is a novel by Laurence Sterne, published between 1759–1767. Sterne promises the “life and... More > opinions” of his protagonist.

But it is one of the central jokes of the novel that he cannot explain anything simply, that he must make explanatory diversions to add context and colour to his tale.< Less

Most of the action is concerned with domestic upsets or comic misunderstandings, which find humour in the opposing temperaments.
