The book “One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest” is about a man, Randle Patrick
McMurphy, who is committed into a mental ward in Oregon after faking insanity to get,
out of a work camp. Once committed McMurphy challenges the authority of a nurse
named Ms. Ratched. Throughout the story the insubordinate nature of McMurphy
conflicts with the tyrannical style of Ms. Ratched. What conflicts between the two
characters is McMurphy starts to show the other men of the institution that they can open
up and maybe start to become individuals. He tries to bring in laughter, gambling, and
profanity to loosen up some of the patients. Eventually, McMurphy was killed but not
without leaving his mark on the ward.
When youfirst start to read the book, you willfirst notice that the story is told by
one of the men who live in the ward. His name is Chief Bromden; a half-Indian who is
one of the long time committed men. Bromden is a key character in the whole book. The
Chief, is a large man in stature standing 6 foot 7 inches tall, but from reading you get the
idea that in his mind he sees himself as a man only two or three feet tall. This could be
the work of the over 200 electro-shock treatments he has been given. It has
physiologically beaten him to think that he is an inferior being, so much so that he has led
everyone to think he is deaf and mute. Being a deaf mute has enabled him to hear some
of the secrets of the ward because everyone thought it was safe to talk around him. The
Chief has also been in the army and in WWII. He claims to hear and see machinery in the
walls of the ward that track and monitor all action that goes on in and around the hospital.
With his experiences in war and with what he has gone through in the ward, he often
loses himself in a “fog”. He creates this “fog” in his mind so that he can numb the reality
