One flew over the cuckoo's nest; text and criticism

You've never met anyone like Randle Patrick McMurphy ... the hero of Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. 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 and McMurphy, who has only his own indomitable will.

  • "Miss Ratched governa con pugno di ferro e un soave sorriso il suo reparto, in un ospedale psichiatrico dell'Oregon. All'improvviso arriva McMurphy, un irlandese cocciuto, spavaldo, allegro e ribelle. Fra lui e la Grande Infermiera inizia subito un duello all'ultimo sangue. McMurphy risveglia gli altri pazienti ormai svuotati e avviliti dalle "terapie" e riesce a portare una ventata di umanità e calore.
