    1 thought on “A Country Doctor

    1. May be I had developed a habit of looking for an allegory or something in ever work Kafka say but this is of a mixed bag by his standards I will comment only on a few stories that I had to read at least twice.Country DoctorA short story showing snow ball effect after an initial not so important looking choice Like a snowball, Country doctor is struck down the wrong path and he knows it, there are elements horses that keep reminding him that he must return, he wishes to and can, yet he wouldn t [...]

    2. the day I read this story, it was part of a jeopardy question and on top of that, none of the contestants knew that Kafka was the author.

    3. How can such a brief and spare story contain such depths of meaning Each time I read it new insights emerge The story is simple A country doctor is called out at night in the midst of a snowstorm to attend a young man ten miles away The doctor s horse has just died, and he has no substitute Inexplicably, two robust horses appear although with a groom who sends the doctor off into the night while remaining with the doctor s housekeeper Rose, clearly intent on raping her The doctor immediately arr [...]

    6. The dreamlike setting of this short story left me bewildered and with a lot of questions until I decided I better read an analysis of this story It is then I understood what Kafka was trying to communicate I was amazed to say the least as if Kafka transformed his thoughts and sat there in the middle of a dark nightmare writing as he watched the events in the story unfold before his eyeslow is the link to the analysis I ve readthe other link is an award winning Japanese animation of this surreali [...]

    7. Sometimes things just stop making sense You make decisions that you have made before and still it just turns out to be all different It s confusing enough to make your life make sense when you do the same thing day in and day out It gets worse with new equations and new variables added in the old results The story of a country doctor tells us just that A false alarm by a patient and the doctor is left confused with the path he decided to tread his whole life The story leaves us wondering at the [...]

    8. When I went into Golden Lane of the enormous Prague Castle in mid afternoon, I had no clue that Kafka lived there on house number 22 All the rooms, separated by thin as thin as the width of a hair walls, constituted a living space, where ostensibly, less fortunate people lived Kafka, exhausted of his rancorous apartment, took refuge in house no 22, where he used to come after his day job as the doctor of law in the Workers Accident and Insurance Institute for the Kingdom of Bohemia, to spend a p [...]

    9. A small collection of short stories by Kafka They are all quick reads, as none of them go beyond ten pages, with the exception of the last one Of course, quick read is a bit misleading with Kafka, whose writing always deserves careful consideration I will have to return to a few of these stories to make sense of them.The most amusing story for me was A Report for an Academy, which was a letter written by an ape who had successfully assimilated to life among humans.

    10. The Country Doctor is one of Kafka s most enigmatic, because it is one of his most symbolic, and his symbols defy easy explanation Suddenly, however, it transforms itself into nightmare.There are narratives under another under another so that the story is layered just as an onion is The only difference is that with an onion you have the certainty that it has an exhaustible number of layers, not so with A Country Doctor This onion like structure in the story has many effects, of which I will ment [...]

    11. I can totally bet this was actually one of Kafka s dreams, so delusional and enigmatic as it was There are countless times when I force myself to deliver such wispy dreams which make less sense to me in daylight than in the middle of a night on paper but my simpleton mind can not make a head or tail of such writings and consider them deplorable That is why Kafka who manages to bring a rhapsodic dream into an alive and breathing short story is such an endearing writer to me.

    12. I wasn t quite ready for this story, nor was I ready for it to have ended as quickly as it did A hauntingly vivid tale that stays with you far longer than you expect it to One crisis leads to annother An innocent life is put in peril for cost of a false alarm Symbolism abounds in this piece.Amazing how a short story can really get under your skin and make you examine the choices people make and the ramifications of those decisions.

    13. To be quite honest, I think that there isn t and there will never be the right way to explain Kafka s stories, but I will try to give my explanation of it well, I think it is a dream of an over frustrated old doctor who went through many stressful things during his life, due to his profession In addition, it criticizes those people who think they are better acquainted in some things then the real doctors That is why he thinks he s fooled Perhaps many people asked him for help when it wasn t real [...]

    14. well, I don t think I d rate anything by Kafka less than five stars, actually I can t help it I am in love with this wretched man and his masterpieces

    15. Another Kafka story which equally baffled me and even sinister if you found that Noh influenced Japanese short anime film Its a story about a doctor and the snow stormy night when he was called out to meet a patient but weird things started happening to him which is hard to explain what happened exactly.Personally this is in line towards the Absurdist element than Melville s Bartleby does since this novel is like a ride with Fringe s Dr Walter Bishop on LSD Unfortunately this story seemed to r [...]

    16. Do I understand the underline meaning of this Kafka s short story Totally not But at some point, his works perhaps can be read out of pleasure for a self deprecating person like me Despite being good by conditions, as a human we might eventually lose some sense of human spirit That is what I think of this story We feel helpless, worse than that we are satisfied to be helpless so as we don t have to intend to be participated in any life being The Doctor encounters his conflict, not just whether t [...]

    17. Was cleaning out a book case in one of my smaller bedrooms and of course I ended up examining books I had not looked at for many years Remember reading this eons ago and since it had been many years since I has read Kafka, I ended up reading some of the stories.As strange and brilliant as it was the first time I read it A country doctor, feeling used, no control over his own life, has a very outwardly experience when he is called to the home of a patient Only at the very end does he attempt to e [...]
