  • One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
    903 words
    One flew East, One flew West, One died without a part of his brain. In my opinion the main theme of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is conformity. The patients at this mental institution, or at least the one in the Big Nurse's ward, find themselves on a rough situation where not following standards costs them many privileges being taken away. The standards that the Combine sets are what makes the patients so afraid of a change and simply conform hopelessly to what they have since anything out of...

    As he [Jesus] landed he saw a great throng, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a Shepherd. (Mark 6: 34) Jesus entrance is much like R.P. McMurphys entrance onto the ward in Ken Kesey One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest. Much like Jesus, McMurphy saw the people on this psychiatric ward as metaphorical sheep, leaderless and subject to the cunning fox, in the form of Head Nurse Ratched.

These two novels are both amazing books, communicating to us the tales of two heroes and their struggles. Although these two stories are very different from each other, they also share a great nu...

Metaphors are used to back up his concepts as well as machinery imagery. The Three black boys that methodically obey an irritated nurse with a cold heart are just part of the cast of characters that live in what resembles mostly a factory than a sanatorium. The "Fog Machine" is something that the staff gave to the patients for them t...

    Chief Bromden only begins to move towards sanity when he regains self-esteem and the ability to act upon his decisions. Discuss. When talking about a person who is 'sane' it means they are normal. To be 'normal' is to be accepted by 'society'. Chief Bromden calls society the 'combine'.

This attribute plays a huge role in Chief Br...
