Doctors in Fiction: Lessons from Literature by Borys Surawicz & Beverly Jacobson

Medical practitioners are key actors in many well-known works of fiction and literature, presenting a vital insight into the social, medical, scientific and ethical concerns of their authors and readers. However, medical professionals are often left little time to explore such cultural perceptions of their profession, and by extension themselves, despite the extent to which the views of their patients and society have been - and still are - shaped by them. Doctors in Fiction explores and analyzes representations of medical practitioners in fiction, encompassing classic and contemporary literature, popular fiction, and authors from many nations and traditions. These include among others: Albert Camus A* Anton Checkhov A* Robertson Davies A* Graham Greene A* George Eliot A* Ian McEwan A* F. Scott Fitzgerald A* Jaroroslav Hasek A* Henrik Ibsen A* John Irving A* Patrick O'Brien A* Boris Pasternak A* Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn This book will be of interest to those with an interest in the medical humanities, and to students of cultural history and literature. It will also be of particular interest to medical practitioners of all kinds who enjoy literature and wish to understand and reflect upon wider perceptions of their profession.
