Finals are on Wednesday. I have done most of my reading. I have to read almost all of Tristram Shandy, or at least enough to write my paper. I'm figuring three-four pages on the comparison between Jaques the Fatalist and Tristram Shandy will do it. Do a little bit on the narrative, and then a page on the nature of the digressions. If I can stretch it I can do a page on the types of digressions, and the use and placement of the digressions. A good enough theory I might not have to read the book at all. Right?
