In sixteenth-centruy Venice, celebrated physician Mateo Colombo finds himself behind bars at the behest of the Church authorities. His is a crime of disclosure, heinous and heretical in the Church’s eyes, in.
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 society. Like his namesake Christopher Colombus, he has made a discovery of enormous significance for humankind. Whereas Colombus voyaged outward to explore the world and found the Americas, Mateo Colombo looked inward, across the mons veneris, and uncovered the clitoris.
Based on historical fact, The Anatomist is an utterly anatomistq 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 Marquez.
The Anatomist by Federico Andahazi
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 later. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

El Anatomista by Federico Andahazi – Teacher’s Guide – : Books
In the Catalogo di tutte le puttane del bordello con il lor prezzo, her name appeared printed in bold letters and her price in even more remarkable numbers: That is to say, six ducats more expensive than the legendary Lenna Grifa. In the catalog, carefully compiled and edited for discerning travelers, no mention was made of her eyes green as emeralds, nor of her nipples hard as almonds whose diameter and texture might be compared to the petals of a flower — if ever there were such petals of the diameter and texture of Mona Sofia’s nipples.
Nor did it make mention of her firm animal thighs, as if rounded on a lathe, nor of her voice like crackling wood. 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.
Nor did it mention her whorish talents, capable of arousing even an enfeebled old man. When the postmodern author decides to have a literary outing into the history, the result is usually not too complimentary for the historic science. But the book is usually a great fun to read. And so it is with Anatokista Anatomist — a tale of the grand anatomic discovery. Even Sigmund Freud might be jealous. Apr 09, Andahzzi rated it it was amazing Shelves: If everyone of these images make you think of a vagina, then this book is for you.
Mostly historical accurate book. There were several scenes in this book that will offend, titillate, and make you either laugh or want to throw up. I laughed, but I’m not a generally morally upright type of person. Here is a bonus picture of Jesus on the arse of a dog: View all 9 comments.

One of the blurbs on the back cover of this claim that Andahazi’s book falls between The Alchemist and the Name of the Rose and Perfume. Having only read about those three, I cannot comment on the veracity of that claim other than that, for a page novel divided into six parts, there’s a lot of little projects this book aims for.
And it mostly pulls them all off, albeit breezily at times. Yeah, it could have been longer, but then it could not be read in a single sitting. 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. Anato,ista translation did the job—nothing flashy; Andahazi’s Joycean riffs on the mammamatrixmostmysterious must’ve been excised—was most cederico in the philosophy bits, which were the most “sexy” rederico “sexy” refers to a beautifully-formed but wholly-sexist argument.
Other reviewers have better expressed federuco over the depictions of prostitution, misogyny, heresy, and pedophilia while a few others have noted that Andahazi’s goal was simply to depict a point in the humanistic tradition which was partly still very much in the dark—not an endorsement. If you like your historical romances from the Italian Renaissance with a positive portrayal of the difficulties which women faced ie, without the whoremongering and the religioncheck out The Blind Contessa’s Fedrico Machine.

Es casi como si hubiera dicho: Se deja leer, tiene un comienzo demasiado pretencioso, casi innecesario. Por momentos te olvidas que lo escribio un autor argentino. La trama es buena pero esperaba un final mejor. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I’m certainly thankful I wasn’t alive during the renaissance.
Women were demonized if this tale is historically accurate. According to Matteo Realdo Columbo, the discoverer of the clitoris, women had no soul.
They were temptresses of men, enticing them to partake of their lascivious ways. The root of all their maladies was the clitoris. Kinetic fluids which contain the soul become trapped in the clitoris. Proper stimulation is anatomist to release women’s souls and cure all that ails them. Such d I’m certainly thankful I wasn’t alive during the renaissance.
Let the orgasms begin! This book was a small jewel of anatomical and historical reference. If you appreciate and are interested in the way anatomists thought during the 16th century then this is a book you will enjoy. Bola de fuego empantanada: Mar 25, Kate rated it it was ok Shelves: Eh, not a bad read.
But my dedication failed before I reached the end. The trial dragged on too much, and the characters never really grab you. Also, Andahazi repeats himself too much and Andahazi repeats himself too much. Has desbloqueado una nueva andahaai de decir “pene”. Este libro me hizo mal. No soy psicoanalista, pero no me hace falta serlo para saber que Andahazi tiene problemitas. This novel is nicely done–deserving of more 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 quite funny. In addition I thought it was tastefully erot This novel is nicely done–deserving of more credit than many reviewers here have given it. In addition I thought it was tastefully erotic.
This is a skillfully told tale; I’m surprised it doesn’t have a wider audience. Something to ponder about for philosophers or theologians, however antiquated. Definitely not something modern day anatomists or doctors should emulate, believe nor regress into. It’s quite 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 anatimista.
I somehow just got lost in the philos Something to ponder about for philosophers or theologians, however antiquated. I somehow just got lost in the philosophy talk. The writing is luscious in its descriptiveness.
