    1,367 words
    Throughout history, mankind has been afflicted with disease and failing health. They have ranged from infections to broken bones to psychopathologies. How mankind treats his weaker brethren is a true reflection of the culture in which he or she resides. To treat the sick poorly denotes selfishness and egocentrism whereas to treat the ill humanely denotes gentleness and self-sacrifice.

    Kesey's brilliant work in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest is the by-product of many factors. Kesey uses the setting of the story as his most powerful weapon in establishing his viewpoints. At first, one might consider the story to simply be a fine piece of contemporary fiction, but in reality it is a bitter commentary on the condition of the American society. Obviously, it becomes evident that Kesey will convey many viewpoints throughout the course of the story, however, I strongly believe that ...

    342 words
    Gold seekers were much more interested in digging for gold than they were in living. The Prospectors would stay at camps at night and after they were done looking for gold. Some camps that they would stay in are known as the Lousy Ravine and the Whiskey Flat. Some of the Diggers would live in shacks that they built themselves.
