Dissection, Crime

    The narrator finds the conversation at a dinner party revolves around the condemnation of the criminal exhumation of corpses for dissection. He rises to the defence of the practice, as necessary in the training of medical practitioners, and is condemned as a man of 'libertine principles' (252).
