Gracias y desgracias del ojo del culo, directed to Doña Juana Mucha, Montón de Carne, Mujer gorda por arrobas is one of the best proofs that Francisco de Quevedo was an extraordinary satirist. Quevedo is one of the great masters of the European sonnet – along with his rival Luis de Góngora, or Shakespeare and John Donne. However, this other edge of his work is less known.
Today’s reader will soon discover how irreverent this blasphemous and eschatological booklet still is today. Here we speak of the graces and misfortunes of the eye of the ass, the misery and greatness of our most intimate and recondite organ. Written around 1622, this text was never published during the poet’s lifetime. Only after his death did it circulate clandestinely for a long time as an anonymous work.
For many scholars, behind the humorous and the demonstration of ingenuity, other readings can be found. Among them a ruthless satire of the society of his time. The eschatological was one of the topics that Quevedo addressed most profusely.
It is not uncommon because in the Golden Age it was one of the usual themes of literature, inherited from the past. However, despite the growing applause of these Quevedian satires, they remain part of Quevedo’s lesser-known work.

“Who prides himself so much on being a servant of your mercy, what can he offer but things of the ass? Although your mercy has such that you can lend it to us all. If this treatise seems to you to be entertaining, read it and pass it very slowly and at the root of the palate. If it seems dirty to you, wipe with it, and kiss me very tightly.”
