Subject

The perspective of the narrator

Description

Yorick, the narrator of A Sentimental Journey, decides to include the missing story of his lack of passport in France only when that story has consequence for the rest of his purported narrative.

Thus, Sterne sheds light on the hidden nuance behind the seemingly cohesive story of the self as told from the perspective of the narrator.

"It is time the reader should know it, for in the order of things in which it happened, it was omitted; not that it was out of my head; but that had I told it then, it might have been forgot now - and now is the time I want it" (57).
