"A Country Doctor" is a narration in which the main character, Franz (the united states doctor), faces lots challenges and frustrations some of which are beyond his control. In the complete tale, Franz's Kafka is troubled by proceedings that are beyond his control. The surreal unfolding of the storyline by Kafka offers it a nightmarish eminence that is manifested at the commencement when "two horses crawl out of the pigsty" (Corder 26). The storyplot "A Country Doctor" puts across a number of designs.
The first defy that the doctor faces is the fact that he must attend to an individual to be able to obtain transport because his personal horse died the preceding night. As the storyline unfolds, no person is wanting to let him use his equine for such a vacation and this makes him think quite definitely. By stating "distracted and tormented, I kicked my foot contrary to the cracked door of the pig sty" (Corder 29) Franz informs us that the physician experienced frustrated and betrayed by the population he is focused on serve, a modern culture that ought to be willing to provide him a supporting hand.
The second problem the doctor is faced with is to surmount the stern weather. The doctor will come to the patients' farm after traveling by way of a surprise of snow to attend him. Due to the stern winter conditions, the doctors' equine dies. As the story nears the conclusion, consequently the physician doesn't arrive at his destination after having been dragged all the way through the snowy desert.
The third task the physician faces is that of urgent voyage that he must make in the united states to respond to a call to see a very sick man several miles away. His attempts are frustrated because he does not have any means of travel. He does not know how to travel although he has an extremely suited carriage for the quest, he is decked out warmly for the elements, and he has his medicine bag. He does not have any horse to draw his carriage. He has delivered his lady savant to attempt to borrow a horses from the community but she comes back clear handed because no one wants to expose his horse to such bad weather conditions as are prevailing in those days (Corder 22).
The grooms' issue posses the fourth obstacle to the doctor. The doctor confirms if difficult to deal with the groom. He is in a dilemma of whether to attend to his ailing patient or protecting Rosa, his house help, from the sick intentioned groom. Through the entire story he's tormented by thoughts of Rosa being exposed to danger after deciding to save lots of his patient.
Franz's storyline is a headache because the physician differs from the other normal doctors in the bona fide world. From the pragmatic society potential customer, the storyplot doesn't present anything of your country doctor. After briefly analyzing his patient the physician comes to a finish that the individual has feigned disorder in order to get community's attention. "A nightmare is an experience or event that is intensely distressing and may cause fear" (Mifflin) hence the classification of Franz Kafka's "A Country Doctor" as one. This is turned out when he kicks the pigsty and admits that he doesn't know what to do to access his patient. The doctor fantasizes horses with long thighs crawl out of pigsty. This is a specific diverge from real life where the same may be vied as abstract.
A major theme understood and brought out clearly in the storyplot is putting blame on other people. The doctor place blame on others for his inadequacies. He blames his insufficient a equine for inability to get to his patient. After addressing the patients home, he's brazed out by the genuineness of the patient's disease but nonetheless blames the individual for insufficient confidence besides thinking that he is feigning condition. The doctors' failure to get a equine from the friends and neighbors can be due to his poor liaison with them, but he insists that they are showing no appreciation and not prepared to counter his good deeds to them. He places culpability for his reduced performance in his service to a 'predecessor' who's robbing him off his type of work.
The theme of fantasy is also presented clearly in the storyplot. The unanticipated emergence of the bridegroom manifests this. It really is like a leprechaun story. The quick grabbing and giving of teeth markings on Rosa's cheek gives rise to the question of if the bridegroom is a vampire. He also breaks down the entrance of the doctor's quarters as the doctor is being overly enthusiastic by the horses over which he does not have any control of. The horses too behave as you wouldn't expect, halting independently when they reach the home of the ailing man; waits for the doctor and then will take him away again, when he escapes from the bed of the tired man. There is also how big is the worms in the lesion beside the ailing man. These are themes that have emerged as fantasy. Addititionally there is where the physician is stripped naked and thrown into bed with the unwell man. This is a air travel of the creativity since it cannot happen in the daily practice of your doctor's life.
Lastly, the theme that is also explored in the story is opportunism. "Opportunism is the actions of someone who takes every chance to gain an edge and is willing to react in unfair way" (Mangat 889). The bridegroom in the storyplot appears with two horses at that time when the doctor is within dire dependence on one to enable him travel to his patient's home. He grabs the chance to have Rosa for himself by allowing the doctor to work with his horses for the journey. The doctor adores and takes is concerned about Rosa; nevertheless he does not have any option but to leave her in the hands of the cruel bridegroom in substitute for the two horses. The physician leaves for the patient's farm signifying that the quest is unavoidable. The bridegroom realizes this opportunity when the physician says "or I'll quit the voyage, no subject how urgent it is, " (Corder 33).
