One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Transcript of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
McMurphy VS. the big Nurse Ratched
-McMurphy encounters problems of tyranny, evil, conformity, insanity & death; which are all made because of the Nurse.
Internal conflict with The Chief & his past
Patients VS. Society
- all the patients have their own little querks.
The rabbits and wolf:
Becoming independent, everyone has self-value.
The rabbits symbolize the weak people such as the patients, while the wolf symbolizes the strong ones, such as Nurse Ratched.
The Fog Machine:
The fog machine symbolizes a relaxing, safe place to escape from reality. When Bromden, a patient, slips away he sees fog and he feels as if he is safe.
The Electroshock Table:
The electroshock therapy table symbolizes
crucifixion. It is used to do the same as what crucifixion does, which is sacrifice the patients. Also, it is shaped like a cross.
McMurphy finally rebels against Nurse Ratched by smashing the glass window on the Nurses' Station, which then shows that he is serious about his rebellion against her and is not going to be gentle about it. This begins the end to the arms race between Mcmurphy and the big Nurse. At this point his fate is sealed and the disturbed ward in inevitable.
