Saturday 18th May, 2.30pm
The Anatomist's Tale - Seeing With One's Own Eyes
An illustrated lecture on how surgeon-anatomists, from Vesalius and
Harvey
to the  Hunter brothers and the waxworks of Joseph Towne, used the

in
the dissecting room. From microcosm to macrocosm, a voyage into the
fabric
of the body made visible.


Sunday 2nd June, 2.30pm
Keats and the Poetry of Surgery
In poetry as in life, Keats possessed a keen medical and botanical
expertise; trained as an apothecary, he also studied surgery at Guy's
Hospital, where he would have witnessed the trauma of operations
performed
without anaesthesia. What effect did this morbid spectacle have on a man
of
sensibility? A talk by Jean Haynes in the 19th century women's operating
theatre of the United Hospitals of the Borough.
