The Use of Force by William Carrols William


  • Mathilda
  • Docter

The Use of Force is a story about the conflict between doctor and patient (ill baby). In this story the narrator is a doctor who visits the house of the Olson family. Matilda has had a high fever for three days. No medicine worked so her parents called the doctor. Doctor asked Mathilda’s parents that if she had a sore throat, she may be suffering from diphtheria. The parents did not view their daughter’s throat reason is that, they did not want to hurt her. The doctor asks Mathilda to open her mouth but at that time the girl attacks the doctor’s eyes with her fingers. The doctor felt sad and hates the parents when they say that the doctor is a nice man and he will not hurt her. Then the doctor decides to use force because he does not want to leave her to die. While the doctor is trying to look into her throat, Mathilda’s father suddenly releases her. The parents are fearful that the doctor may harm their daughter.

Next time, he catches the head of the child and tries to get the wooden depressor into her mouth. The girl breaks it and her child’s mouth starts bleeding. After that he forces the spoon back off her teeth and throat. He knew that she has a sore throat and is suffering from diphtheria.

Basically, force refers to injustice and not fear. However, it becomes a necessity while we use it to help or save somebody’s life. Here the conflict is between the doctor and the parents of the child. The doctor uses force because of his responsibility to save her whilst the parents do not want the use of force. Due to their first child’s death their love towards their extreme child and they fear losing the child. So, the doctor ‘s love towards the child is innocent but finds her parents contemptible. The parents were concerned about immediate pain rather than thinking about the deadly diseases.
