Jul 26, Mary Newcomb added it. A lyrically written, sensual, federicl extraordinarily enjoyable novel in which a Renaissance anatomist’s astonishing discovery forever changes the female erotic universe. A Million More Pages: This isn’t my idea of sensual. I don’t suppose this was written with the purpose of creating an unpleasant reading experience, and in fact is probably trying to say something clever about sex and women.

One of the blurbs on the back cover of this claim that Andahazi’s book falls between The Alchemist anqtomista the Name of the Rose and Perfume. The translation did the job—nothing flashy; Andahazi’s Joycean riffs on the mammamatrixmostmysterious must’ve been excised—was most effective in the philosophy bits, which were the most “sexy” whereby “sexy” refers to a beautifully-formed but wholly-sexist argument.

Me llevo a la espera de un final y fue inesperado. Such d I’m anagomista thankful I wasn’t alive during the renaissance.


Refresh and try again. Hardcoverpages. The author has obviously, very much so, written the book to expose the sexist, complicit attitude of the church and society regarding women firstly, and their sexuality, secondly. The linkage of clitoral stimulation to witchcraft seemed plausible to me as a 16th century viewpoint, and in any event was quite funny. His work has the recognition of the critical all over the world.

Return to Book Page. And so it is with The Anatomist — a tale of the grand anatomic discovery.

The Anatomist

Like his namesake Christopher Colombus, he has made a discovery of enormous significance for humankind. To view it, click here. His is a crime of disclosure, heinous and heretical in the Church’s eyes, in.

But instead it feels like the book doesn’t really understand women, and anadhazi a bit patronising, us women merely play things for men, and now the men know about the magic button, wink wink.

It made no mention of her tiny hands that seemed hardly large enough to encircle a male organ, nor of her diminutive mouth whose cavity one would have thought unable to receive a fully engorged member. Just as America wasn’t “discovered” until Colombus – the Vikings never got there, and hey, the Native Americans actually living there wouldn’t have figured it out either.

It’s a fictionalised story of Mateo Colombo, who was an anatomist at Padua University and he “discovered” the clitoris. They were temptresses of men, enticing them to partake of their lascivious ways. The Renaissance is on, but there’s still belief in witchcraft and demons, women are very I’ve had this book in my house almost four years and I’ve only just gotten around to reading it.


But the book is usually a great fun feeerico read. He managed to argue his way out of the death sentence, helped on by a letter from a dying Pope wanting his services, but it was agreed that he could never publish his findings.

The “discovery” of the clitoris was as amazing and life-changing for the western world as Colombus finding America!!

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Want to Read saving…. Hubiera querido que este libro andabazi termine pero eso es imposible. It’s just a bit vile. 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 znatomista four hundred years later.

But as far as historical-literary-medical-religious smut, this book is rather balanced. A must read at times witty, tragic and absolutely humorous. Even Sigmund Freud might be jealous. Published September 1st by Doubleday first published Having only read about those three, I cannot comment on the veracity of that claim anatomist than anaomista, for a page novel divided into six parts, there’s a lot of little projects this book aims for.

Definitely not something modern day anatomists or doctors should emulate, believe nor regress into. Lists with This Book.
