A Sentimental Journey
by Laurence Sterne (1768)
A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy (full title) is a novel by the Irish-born English author Laurence Sterne, written and first published in 1768, as Sterne was facing death. In 1765, Sterne travelled through France and Italy as far south as Naples, 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. (Sterne met Smollett during his travels in Europe, and strongly objected to his spleen, acerbity and quarrelsomeness. He modeled the character of Smelfungus on him.)
Reformatted for readability (fonts, headers, chapter breaks, TOC, etc) and converted to mobi for the Kindle 3. Conversion done via Calibre.
EDIT (7 June):
Html code and .css file cleaned up (all the MS Word garbage removed).
Redid the TOC and various tags.
Fixed more broken paragraphs, typos, etc.
