Book Description:

"Every serious student of 18th-century religious thought will need to come to terms with this edition of Sterne's sermons. . . . The annotation alone will force scholars to explore again the notion that 18th-century Anglicanism, and Sterne's Anglicanism in particular, was devoid of conviction. . . . One of the special strengths of this edition is the editor's decision to provide ample quoted material from authors who influenced Sterne's work in these sermons. . . . Extremely erudite and sensitive."--William Spellman, University of North Carolina, Asheville

This two-volume scholarly edition of Laurence Sterne's 45 sermons is the first complete reprinting of the text of the sermons since the Shakespeare Head edition in 1927 and the first annotated edition ever. The introduction and notes demonstrate Sterne's method of composing sermons and indicate, wherever possible, the relationship between the sermons and Sterne's fiction and other writing. In addition, the annotation provides numerous connections between the sermons and Tristram Shandy and A Sentimental Journey.

 Melvyn New's long and illuminating introduction outlines the main elements of late 17th- and early 18th-century Anglicanism and explores how this theological perspective informed Sterne's message in the pulpit. The work includes four categories of annotations: Sterne's sources, his theology, his other writings, and his clerical and private life.
 As with the Florida edition of Tristram Shandy, this will be the edition that scholars will need to consult. Ecclesiastical and intellectual historians, as well as library scholars interested in the eighteenth century, will find this work of great usefulness.

From the Back Cover:

The sermon which gave rise to the publication of these, having been offer'd to the world as a sermon of Yorick's.
