The way to be a good woman is either to be a virgin or to cut it off, so we see this saintly anaromista cutting off her own, then her daughters’ and setting up some cult where she circumcises all the women joining. With a prose that does not forget the novelist, the author conducted this first volume in an exhaustive investigation that starts from the original cultures and reaches the May Revolution.


There were several scenes federicl this book that will offend, titillate, and make you either laugh or want to throw up.

Bola de fuego empantanada: Like his namesake Christopher Colombus, he has made a discovery of enormous significance for humankind. The mixture of citations of primary sources like Christine di Pisan and Aristotle with scholarship from twentieth century historians was a nice touch, especially when the fictional scholars were thrown in too.

Some people are burned at the stake. The writer dances around the subject a lot, alluding to it by various euphemisms. I don’t naatomista 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.

And so it is with The Anatomist — a tale of the grand anatomic discovery. Let the orgasms begin! I laughed, but I’m not a generally morally upright type of person.

Lo novedoso es el tema y la forma en que el autor nos lo presenta. The discovery of the clitoris can’t come out, suggesting that women have a female penis, could be equal to men etc etc.

His is a crime of disclosure, heinous and heretical in the Church’s eyes, in that his research threatens to subvert the whole secular order of Renaissance anagomista. Fair enough, people thought like that back then, but characters are presented to give you no other argument or to suggest that it might be wrong.
