Anita G. Schmukler

"A Country Doctor" is explored as a study of ambivalence, and the reader's response of self-doubt and inability to feel empathy is likened to countertransference which occurs in response to a patient's manner of presentation. Countertransference is used in a therapeutic situation to further one's understanding, and the author suggests that the reader of Kafka's work employ his or her affective response to the story and style in a similar manner.
