He's a boisterous, brawling, fun-loving rebel who swaggers into the ward of a mental hospital and takes over. He's a lusty, profane, life-loving fighter who rallies the other patients around him by challenging the dictatorship of Big Nurse. He promotes gambling in the ward, smuggles in wine and women; at every turn, he openly defies her rule. The contest starts as sport (with McMurphy taking bets on the outcome) but soon it develops into a grim struggle for the minds and hearts of the men, into an all-out war between two relentless opponents: Big Nurse, backed by the full power of authority ... McMurphy, who has only his own indomitable will.… (mais)

    Asylums: Essays on the Social Situation of Mental Patients and Other Inmates por Erving Goffman (BeeQuiet)
    BeeQuiet: When reading One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest there were two books that immediately sprung to mind, both non-fiction and the latter of which I'll post above. I think anyone captivated by the relations in this book, particularly the way in which the inmates are made to perceive themselves will get a huge amount from this book. It's wonderful, and Goffman has a very lucid, accessible way of writing, which certainly helps.… (mais)

  4. 30
    Madness and Civilization: A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason por Michel Foucault (BeeQuiet)
    BeeQuiet: Furthering on my Goffman recommendation, Foucault here details what he sees as being the movement from "treatment" of the mentally ill through more violent means through to what is described in Kesey's book as "infinitely more human methods". What is shown through Foucault's work is that whilst leaving no physical marks, turning man against man and reducing one's sense of self can be seen as even worse.… (mais)

I am blown away by this book ,its unpredictable writing style , the innocent mirth and the tragic ending.
But before I start typing my thoughts, in the guise of an unbiased review , this review is not without spoilers both in the plot and the emotions it invokes. So read, if you are reading, at your own discretion.
So starting from where it all began, the first part is long-winded and almost prevents you from reading ahead. However, slowly the way the book is written , the insanity mixed with the daily incidents and the tilted narration gets to you and you start getting comfortable. By the end of the first book , the plot catches steam and you sail through the rest of the book.
What I loved about this book is its writing style which presents sanity in such a normal but yet convulated way that it takes some time to realise that it is the insanity speaking and is not the real scenario. McMurphy was a tragic character from the onset and we were all aware he would end badly ; yet me like all the other characters in the book cheered him on on this crusade and the end , what an end it was.
The nurse broke my heart , she being a position of power , I still can't believe she did this out of spite. What would she gain out of such a behaviour.
This was a beautiful book , with good enough drama to not be too subtle and even twist and turns. ( )

I've never seen the movie adaptation of this book, which I think was a good thing going into it - I could enjoy it for what it was without Jack Nicholson's portrayal of the main character constantly popping into my head.

Nurse Ratched, psychopathic bully and evil control freak, rules her ward of chronic and acute mental patients with an iron fist, never loosening her grip on their fragile mental states lest they should show any kind of improvement in their mental health and develop independent thinking. Dampened by a toxic mixture of pills, electric shock treatment and Ratched's daily mind games, the patients exist in a perpetual fog of mental and physical exhaustion until one day they are joined by McMurphy, a larger than life hustler and petty criminal who has declared himself insane to get out of completing his sentence at a work farm. Cocky, loud and used to ruling the roost, McMurphy sets about shaking up life on the ward, but before long he locks horns with Nurse Ratched and a dangerous battle for domination on the ward ensues.

Funny and desperately sad in equal measure, this was a terrific read, a crazy, out of control ride with the most wonderful characters. It shows it's age in terms of its sexist and racist commentary in places, but that aside it's an absolute joy to read.

4.5 stars - one that will stay with me for a long time, I suspect. (And now I will have to watch the movie). ( )

The beginning of this was a little slow, however, it picked up in the second half and I was able to get through it quickly. I think I would have preferred this written in the 3rd person instead of the 1st - there are times when the main character is hallucinating and I wasn't entirely sure what was going on. Now I understand where the term "Nurse Ratched" comes from and I am interested in going to watch the movie and see how it compares. ( )

I'm sure it's a case of seeing Jack Nicholson as McMurphy in the movie adaptation, but I really couldn't imagine a better casting choice.

Regarding the rest of the book - it's stellar. The story is riveting - the narrator is an unreliable narrator, but at the same time totally reliable, because what he's telling you is HIS truth throughout.

Some novels when they divert to backstories totally lose their focus and energy. Kesey makes every moment work. There are a lot of characters playing significant enough roles to make you take notice and for a short book, Kesey does a phenomenal job giving you enough information for their actions and issues to make sense.

And finally, the big nurse - I read Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian for the first time last year. The Judge is possibly the worst (by that I mean best/most impactful) villain I've come across, but I don't think Nurse Ratched is far behind. ( )

As a postgraduate student in the writing program at Stanford, Kesey was in on some early LSD experiments at a veterans' hospital, and Chief Broom's subjective vision is full of dislocations and transformations, but Kesey is systematic in fusing Christian mythology with the American myth of the white man and the noble red man fighting against the encroachment of civilization, represented by women. Though in modern society women are as much subject to the processes of mechanized conformity as men (some say more), the inmates of this symbolic hospital are all male, and McMurphy calls them "victims of a matriarchy." There's a long literary tradition behind this man's-man view of women as the castrater-lobotomizers; Kesey updated it, on the theory that comic-strip heroes are the true American mythic heroes, and in terms of public response to the book and to the stage productions of it he proved his point.

The novel is comic-book Freud: the man who achieves his manhood (keeping women under him, happy whores in bed) is the free man—he's the buckaroo with the power of laughter. Leslie Fiedler described Kesey's novel as "the dream once dreamed in the woods, and now redreamed on pot and acid." Kesey's concept of male and female is not so very remote from that in Mailer's writing, though Kesey celebrates keeping the relationships at a mythic comic-strip level, while Mailer, in his foolhardy greatness, delves into his own comic-strip macho.

The world of this brilliant first novel is Inside—inside a mental hospital and inside the blocked minds of its inmates. Sordid sights and sounds abound, but Novelist Kesey has not descended to mere shock treatment or isolation-ward documentary. His book is a strong, warm story about the nature of human good and evil, despite its macabre setting.
adicionada por Shortride | editarTime (Feb 16, 1962)
 
What Mr. Kesey has done in his unusual novel is to transform the plight of a ward of inmates in a mental institution into a glittering parable of good and evil.
