Laurence Sterne was one of the most renowned Irish novelists of the 18th century. He started off his writing career with poetry and published his first collection titled ‘The Unknown World, Verses Occasioned by Hearing a Pass-Bell. He further wrote a novel before the first notable work of his life, ‘The Life And Opinions Of Tristram Shandy’. Its unusual story caught the attention of the masses which helped his popularity reach the elite class. This book was divided into nine volumes and was published in five installments. Although the first two volumes were a success but writers reviewed the content as boring and predicted it to be a failure. The character of this book was liked by the people because of its individuality. This book gradually attracted attention as each volume ended to increase the curiosity for the next one. The first eight volumes were published over a period of seven years and the last one came just before Sterne’s death.
