Voyage Sentimental par M. Sterne, sous le nom d'Yorick
STERNE, Lawrence; FRENAIS, M. (trans.)
Lawrence Sterne's classic novel helped establish travel writing as a serious form of literature. At the same time, the novel also serves to satirize the emerging genre. In contrast to the travel accounts of his day, which were classical in their style, Sterne emphasizes his personal experiences and opinions, thus making a contribution to the art of autobiography and the essay.
