The Body (short story)
"The Body" ("Un corpo") is a short story by Camillo Boito. It is a psychological study of two obsessive men, an artist and an anatomist who lust after the beauty of Charlotte, the former's mistress. Eventually, their self-destructive obsession borders on necrophilia.
Although nowhere near as famous as Boito's other story, "Senso", "The Body" is considered to be one of the author's best works and has recently been adapted into an opera by the Greek composer Kharálampos Goyós.
