Weitere Ausgaben von A Sentimental Journey


Published just months before his death in 1768, A Sentimental Journey is Sterne's lightly fictionalised account of his own European travels; and being Sterne, it is more about digressions, misunderstandings and risqué jokes than the places he visits. Narrated by the (apparently) innocent Parson Yorick, who appeared in Sterne's other masterpiece, Tristram Shandy, it is full of anecdote and incident, and is far more about the people than the landscapes on the road from Calais. Despite the title, any sentimentality is offset by the elegance of the writing, the engaging companionship of Yorick himself and the constant, playful surprises.


Wise, humorous and diverting, Laurence Sterne's celebrated novel A Sentimental Journey joins the Naxos AudioBooks catalogue. Sterne's novel transformed the travelogue genre in the 18th century by making travel writing much more personal and immediate. Writing from a subjective perspective, we experience France and Italy through the eyes of the delightful persona of Yorick. This spirited, mirthful and flirtatious character is an obvious alter-ego for Sterne himself. From losing his passport to being mistaken for a jester to indulging in numerous romantic clinches, Yorick's journey is full of unforgettable incidents and adventures.


Laurence Sterne wurde 1713 in Clonmel (Irland) geboren und starb 1768 in London an Tuberkulose. Er studierte Theologie und wurde anglikanischer Pfarrer. Während das Erscheinen des Tristram Shandy 1759 in seiner Gemeinde einen Skandal auslöste, wurde er in den Londoner Salons gefeiert. Bis heute gilt er als einer der wichtigsten Romane der Weltliteratur.
