Abstract

The article is about Ken Kesey’s masterpiece One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The book was written in 1959 and published in 1962. The article throws light on Ken Kesey’s way of thinking regarding the way psychology and psychiatry were being approached in America at that time. The article analyses the story of the novel as a study of institutional processes and the human mind as well as the fine line between sanity and insanity. The article highlights Ken Kesey’s hard work behind the writing of the novel. Ken Kesey worked in the night shifts as an orderly at a mental hospital facility in Menlo Park, California. There, he used to speak to the patients regularly and also witnessed the workings of the institution. Kesey also voluntarily took psychoactive drugs to understand the after-effects of various drugs administered to mental patients. The article also studies the characters of the novel as symbols. Nurse Ratched symbolises oppression and social control with Randle McMurphy as her foil. McMurphy is no angel but he helps the institutional inmates to gain a broader understanding of both their own psyche and of the way society has essentially made them insane.
