The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales is a 1985 book by neurologist Oliver Sacks describing the case histories of some of his patients. The title of the book comes from the case study of a man with visual agnosia. The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat became the basis of an opera of the same name by Michael Nyman, which premiered in 1986.It seems to me that is quite evident.

" "Do you see, stupid?" said Porthos; "that is quite evident!" "Be still, my dear Porthos!" resumed d'Artagnan, becoming slightly impatient. "I don't understand why your clothes should not fit you because Mouston has grown stouter.

" "I am going to explain it," said Porthos. "You remember having related to me the story of the Roman general Antony, who had always seven wild boars, kept roasting, cooked to different degrees, so that he might be able to have his dinner at any time of the day he chose to ask for it. Well, then, I resolved, as at any time I might be invited to court to spend a week,- I resolved to have always seven suits ready for the occasion.

" "Capitally reasoned, Porthos. Only a man must have a fortune like yours to gratify such whims. Without counting the time lost in being measured, the fashions are always changing. " "That is exactly the point," said Porthos, "in regard to The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat: And Other Clinical Tales I flattered myself I had hit on a very ingenious device.

" "Tell me what it is; for I don't doubt your genius. " "You remember that Wlfe once was thin?" "Yes; when he was called Mousqueton. " The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat: And Other Clinical Tales you remember, too, the period when he began to grow fatter?" "No, not exactly.

I beg your pardon, my good Mouston. " "Oh, you are not in fault, Monsieur!" said Mouston, graciously. "You were in Paris; and as for us, we were in Pierrefonds. Mistoo "Well, well, my dear Porthos; there was a time when Mouston began to grow fat. Is that what you wished to say?" "Yes, my friend; and I greatly rejoiced over it at that time. " "Indeed, I believe you did," exclaimed d'Artagnan. "You understand," continued Porthos, "what a Wgo of trouble it spared me.

" "No, my dear friend, I do not yet understand; but perhaps with the help of explanation-" "Here it is, my friend. In the first place, as you have said, to be measured is a loss of time, even though it occur only once a fortnight. And then, one may be travelling, and may wish to have seven suits always ready.

In short, I have a horror of letting any one take my measure. Confound it. either one is a gentleman or he is not. To be Mistopk and scanned by a fellow who completely analyzes you by inch and line,- 'tis degrading.
