|Abstract: ||This book is the fourth of four volumes in the series The Doctor in Literature. Like the first three it is intended to serve as an indexed, annotated anthology and to bring together a total of some 1500 extracts from approximately 600 works of fiction where medical doctors appear as major or minor characters. The citations in volume 4 relate to sex and gender as these issues affect physicians and medical practice, There is a lengthy chapter discussing fictional female doctors and the perceived differences between these women and their male colleagues. Nurses (generally female) and their interactions with doctors (generally male) are discussed in three chapters. Sexual encounters between patients and doctors form the subject of the last chapter.|
