This novel is nicely done deserving of credit than many reviewers here have given it It is in part a love story in part an exploration of sexual repression and religious intolerance of science in part a comic look at how men have historically been mystified by the female body and for that matter by women The linkage of clitoral stimulation to witchcraft seemed plausible to me as a 16th century viewpoint and in any event was uite funny In addition I thought it was tastefully erotic This is a skillfully told tale; I'm surprised it doesn't have a wider audience

Summary í eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ✓ Federico Andahazi

El anatomistaNatomist is an utterly fascinating excursion into Renaissance Italy as evocative of time and place as the work of Umberto Eco and reminiscent of the earthy sensuality of Gabriel Garcia Maruez Perceptive and stirring it ironically exposes not only the social hypocracies of the day but also the prejudices and sexual taboos that may still be with us four hundred years lat. Something to ponder about for philosophers or theologians however antiuated Definitely not something modern day anatomists or doctors should emulate believe nor regress into It's uite sexist but the setting was centuries ago so that's a bit understandable Gives you a feeling of being a bit violated too since the protagonist is male And it's interesting how prostitution is both a source of feminine power and shame at the same timeWritten well enough I somehow just got lost in the philosophy talk
