ABSTRACT
The article discusses the play "The Dog Beneath the Skin" by W. H. Auden and implies the influence W. H. Auden's father had on his work. Auden's father was a professor of public health who was interested in psychoanalysis. Auden's play, a satire on Great Britain in the 1930's, features a surgeon as a main character. The author presents an excerpt from the play to illustrate the ritual of medical practice.
