Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Chief Bromden, the son of a Native American dad and a white mom, starts the novel by relating the real as well as imagined humiliations suffered by him at the hands of the African-American hospital assistants. While their treatment of him is quite tolerant, notwithstanding the fact that he’s physically much larger than they are, Chief expresses enormous fear of Big Nurse, Nurse Ratched. As for the Nurse, she can be identified as a woman of great control and power, who’s bitter enough because her ruthless, machine-like efficiency is thwarted by her endowed big breasts. In spite of her power, the paranoid-schizophrenic Chief is assured that she’s in service of the Combine, which is a big mechanized matrix, humming behind the floors and walls of the hospital, controlling literally everything from the environment to human behavior.

Randle Patrick McMurphy is a new patient on the ward. From the very beginning, McMurphy clearly distinguishes himself from the other patients. He swears, gambles, makes off-color sexual remarks and also sets himself in opposition to Nurse Ratched. McMurphy is used to verbalizing his views that Ratched appears to be a ball-cutter. She actually controls the men by simply encouraging them to spy on each other and take part in group sessions where they verbally brutalize each other. At first they decided to defend Ratched, though eventually agree with McMurphy's assessment. Generally, he tries to assert his newfound leadership role among other patients by simply requesting permission to watch the World Series on the ward's TV. When the permission is denied, McMurphy turns the television on anyway. It’s because she controls power, Ratched suddenly shuts off the electricity to the television. Nevertheless, McMurphy gets the upper hand by simply insisting on watching a blank screen, an action organized by the other patients.

In the second part of the novel, a lifeguard, involuntarily committed to the hospital, tells McMurphy that he ought to adhere to Ratched's rules or risk her extending his sentence. Then, he backs off from his rebellious behavior, although he has already managed to sow the seeds of rebellion in his fellow patients. When McMurphy fails to back the patient Cheswick in his assertions, which he needs to have access to his cigarettes, the disillusioned man simply commits suicide by drowning himself in the pool exactly where McMurphy firstly decided to toe the line.
