Self-conscious narration: An Example

  Digressions, incontestably, are the sun- shine ; ---- they are the life, the soul of reading ; -- take them out of this book for instance, -- you might as well take the book along with them; -- one cold eternal winter would reign in every page of it ; restore them to the writer ; ---- he steps forth like a bridegroom, -- bids All hail ; brings in variety, and forbids the appe- tite to fail.

(Lawrence Sterne, The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman. Vol I, p. 163 (1759))
