Abstract: This paper analyzes the roles of doctors in Maupassant's novel Mont-Oriol. In 19th century France, natural hot springs and the practice of medicine were inextricably linked. During this unique period, as described in Maupassant's Mont-Oriol, many doctors in France treated their patients in spas and natural hot springs. In Part One, the doctors in this context were dedicated to their patient's health initially; however they ultimately became more interested in material pursuits. In Part Two, the roles of doctors appeared to change somewhat. While doctors, in general, still seemed to place a great emphasis on making money, two of the main characters who were doctors, began to develop their religious faiths and pursue love interests. At this stage, the drama which involves the doctors' lives becomes somewhat of a parody. The doctors behave very hypocritically and have little regard for their patients. Through Maupassant's humorous descriptions, readers of Mont-Oriol can gain a satirical look at what life may have been like for doctors in 19th century France.
