A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy

Legacy

In the 1880s, American writer Elizabeth Robins Pennell and her artist husband Joseph Pennell undertook a journey following Sterne's route. Their travels by tandem bicycle were turned into the book Our sentimental journey through France and Italy (1888).

Viktor Shklovsky considered Sterne one of his most important precursors as a writer, and his own A Sentimental Journey: Memoirs, 1917-1922 was indebted to both Sterne's own Sentimental Journey and Tristram Shandy.[4]
