A Country Doctor by Franz Kafka

A Country Doctor by Franz Kafka is a short story about a doctor who struggles to reach a sick boy on winter night. Louis H. Leiter writes about A Country Doctor:

“A Country Doctor” comments on man, who, buffeted by the scheme of things, is unable to transcend the part assigned him by the absurdity of that existence. Because he does not lack conscious knowledge of his condition, but refuses to act in the face of his portentous freedom, the doctor, an archetype of the anti-existential hero, deserves his fate.”
