    One thought on “The Doctor's Dilemma”

    1. Most of this play is, to be honest, nothing special, but it has one of the best death scenes I know Louis Dubedat, a talented but morally bankrupt artist, is about to breathe his last LOUIS Don t grieve, Walpole I m perfectly happy I m not in pain I don t want to live I ve escaped from myself I m in heaven, immortal in the heart of my beautiful Jennifer I m not afraid, and not ashamed Reflectively, puzzling it out for himself weakly I know that in an accidental sort of way, struggling through th [...]

    2. This is a play by the literary giant George Bernard Shaw Shaw was of course a advocate of liberal and socialist thought He was also a good friend and sparring partner with one of my favorites, G.K Chesterton This play is about a doctor who has recently been knighted for his development of a cure of Tuberculosis He has only enough time and resources to take on one patient, and he is faced with the decision to cure a good but poor medical colleague or a talented artist who is a bit of a con artis [...]

    3. I am really starting to understand why George Bernard Shaw is held in such high regard in the literary world He is an incredible writer Shaw is one of the most opinionated authors that I have ever come across, but he writes in such a persuasive way that even if my opinion may differ, I still enjoy the story Doctor s Dilemma was no different In this play, Shaw toys with the idea of many different kinds of doctors Doctors all believe that they are right, but often that other doctors are not, so wh [...]

    4. I listened to this full cast audiobook while skimming reading the play in my Kindle omnibus The Plays of Shaw.I realized fairly quickly after starting this play that I had seen a film version of it with Leslie Caron While I enjoyed listening to the play, I would recommend the 1958 movie over this audiobook to anyone interested in it The pace of the audiobook too slow and the necessary but not always complete stage directions interrupting the flow both detracted from my enjoyment.Regarding the pl [...]

    5. Definitely one of Shaw s better plays it is not as overtly Marxist as his others Man and Superman, Arms and the Man, etc The story is of a Doctor who has just been knighted for his discovery of vaccination He is called upon by a woman to exercise his vaccination of tuberculosis on her scoundrelish husband The rest of the story is for you to read This part, immediately following the death of Mr Dubedat, I thought was particularly hilarious THE NEWSPAPER MAN Mrs Dubedat said she was coming back.B [...]

    6. Absolutely phenomenal Shaw s criticisms of doctors of the early 20th century are largely as true today as they were then.

    7. Play about how a doctor decided who to save with limited resources Encourages thought about what is right in certain situations Shaw helps us laugh about misguided morals, etc.

    8. Was there ever a play that George Bernard Shaw wrote for which he did not have a social agenda And is there ever one of his plays in which it is not important for the reader or viewer to carefully read and consider his preface which clarifies that agenda and raises the questions Shaw means to try to address This is certainly true of The Doctor s Dilemma In the first decade of the 20th century Shaw was concerned about several issues related to health and medical care Among others, he was convince [...]

    9. A little hard to follow on audiobook A funny but not hilarious send up of the medical profession, and definitely a tragic comedy.

    10. Not my favorite of the plays, so far, though the satire of the medical profession is as funny as ever.

    11. It took me three hours to slog through the introduction, and I probably wouldn t have made it had I not been hunkered down at a Silent Reading Party Shaw goes into great detail on his now sufficiently outdated criticisms of doctors and the medical profession, and his writing waxed tedious This was written in 1906, and Shaw was rabidly anti vaccination, highly suspicious of the motivations of physicians, and thought good ventilation and sanitation would cure infectious diseases like tuberculosis. [...]

    12. I thought of giving this a 3 star as whilst reading through it I didn t feel anything special about it It was only when I finished the book and recollected the events presented therein, I found how the message present in the plot regardless of being simple, can be related to in the present era and how true it is Thence I felt unjust to not give it a 4 star Throughout the book I found it humorous how every doctor had this one remedy for all ailments, be it cough, fever or headache, the suspected [...]

    13. A talented man may not necessarily be a good one As a whole I seldom read plays This isn t because of any particular aversion to the genre but rather that other forms of prose are numerous and readily available This particular play has it all, humor, suspense and a mundane believability that weathers the test of time A doctor, recently knighted for his contributions in the care and cure of tuberculosis, is busy being congratulated by his colleagues, when he is interrupted by the wife of a poten [...]

    14. The Doctor 19s Dilemma When it comes to a choice of only one patient you can save, who do you choose is it the rogue with an attractive wife, or a sincere poor colleague who did much good and helped the poor and has no money left Sunday, September 21, 2008.

    15. Very clever, makes cutting social points about death and the medical profession still highly relevant considering the ongoing NHS debates in the UK, or healthcare debate in the US for that matter One of my favourite quotes from the play every profession is a conspiracy against the laity Brilliantly witty as ever for Shaw.

    16. Shaw shows how spectacular and even accused trials of doctorsto prevent an illness.With a bitter mockery, explains the futile essays of injecting ppl with TB strains,in order that they d be protected from a later infection.And how ppl get the infection, without being exposed to a diseased person.

    17. I almost abandoned this book because the first act was so beyond my understanding or caring I was persuaded to pick it up again due to some reviews I read and am glad I did I loathe giving up books that I have invested time in reading However, I m not sure I would actually recommend that anyone else read it

    18. Though the play deals with a serious subject matter, it is treated with hilarity and farce When a doctor discovers a new cure for tuberculosis, he can only treat ten patients at a time He must choose between a poor colleague and a painter who is the husband of the woman he loves That is the dilemma.

    19. My recurring thought while reading George Bernard Shaw so much common sense is quite uncommon and never this funny.I m beginning to realize that George Bernard Shaw s prefaces are as good if not better than his plays, which is saying something because his plays are quite good.

    20. I listened to the LibriVox audiobook, which was wonderfully done.This play is both funny and real I enjoyed it and recommend it.

    21. RIDGEON Yes Life does not cease to be funny when people die any than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
