One Flew Over the Cuckoo's NestBoisterous ribald and ultimately shattering Ken Kesey's 1962 novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time Here is the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants especially the tyrannical Big Nurse R I have a lovehate relationship with this book The writing and imagery are superb and I always love a down with tyrannical overloads generic living and medicalization moral but its other lesson leaves me cringing In the basic knowledge I have of Ken Kesey the book ultimately seems very misogynistic and anti feminist I'm all for a gender balance but this book botches up the entire process in a method that purposely lacks tongue in cheek flair Basically the plot seems to involve men mentally castrated by a domineering woman who could just as easily be labeled Bitch as she could Big Nurse Enter main character who in my tattered yellow paged 70's copy directly labels him as the hero of the book on the back cover a man that pretty much shakes the men up to the supposed feminization of American culture and how it's destroying their identities as males Read here a huge characterization of the male ego is to dominate the female with opposites all aroundHow is this man so easily labeled a hero Have we forgotten he has been charged and convicted among other things with rape of a female minor And the main reason he's in the asylum is to skimp out on his prison sentence How is that masculine if I am to continue on with the stereotypes the book itself perpetuates and yet backpedals when necessary Why do we consider him the main character when the story is being told in the first person by a Native American Can you not be a man a hero unless you're white Or perhaps it was because he was so docileIn the end the supposed hero of the book teaches men that to cast off impending feminization one must be violent towards women; muscle them out of the way destroy them if they're relentless If you are unable or fearful of doing so you're better off killing yourself than being only half of a man Oh but wait there's a special lesson for the ladies themselves too; To steer clear of the eventual rape assault murder or torture and yes it will happen simply sexualize yourself That's the only way to be safe and isn't it convenient securely a woman So much for individualization and going against cultural norms gentlemen You're a dime a dozenBefore we glorify such a book we have to sit down and figure out what exactly masculinity is outside of a cultural setting before we can complain that culture itself is taking it away Are we to allow a cowardly violent looking out for Number One individual give us this definition fair and balancedIt's one thing for him to say it it's another for us to listen
