2. McMurphy strangles Ratched

Author's purpose (Kesey) & Director's intent(Forman)

Conclusion McMurphy's
Therapy Director's Intent Author's Purpose and Scene One Scene Two Author's Purpose: "The floor’s cold, crackling. Up above the light whines, tube long and white and icy. Can smell the graphite salve, like the smell in a garage. Can smell acid of fear. There is one window, up high, small, and outside I see those puffy sparrows strung up on a wire like brown beads. Their heads sunk in the feathers against the cold.
He doesn’t look a bit scared. He keeps grinning at me. The put the graphite salve on his temple. “What is this?” he says. “Conductant,” the technician says. “Anointest my head with conductant. Do I get a crown of thorns?” They smear it on. He’s singing to them, makes their hands shake....
Twist some dials, and the machine trembles, two robot arms pick up soldering irons and hunch down on him. He gives me the wink and speaks to me, muffled, tells me something, says something to me around that rubber hose just as those irons get close enough to the sliver on his temples - light arcs across, stiffens him, bridges him up off the table till nothing is down but his wrists and ankles and out around that crimped black rubber hose a sound like hoooeee! And he is frosted over completely with sparks. Imagery! Metaphor: Other literary devices: Simile: Symbolism or
onomatopoeia: Film: camera angle: bird's eye view & medium shot Diegetic sound: raw voices

One Flew over
the Cuckoo's Nest
(1962) Milos Forman

Adapted film
(1975) "Only at last - after he’d smash through that glass door, her face swinging around, with terror forever ruining any other look she might ever try to use again, screaming when he grabbed for her and ripped her uniform all the way down the front, screaming again and when the two nippled circles started from her chest and swelled out and out, bigger than anybody had ever even imagined, warm and pink in the light - only at the last, after the officials realized that the three black boys weren’t going to do anything but stand and watch and they would have to beat him off without their help, doctors and supervisors and nurses prying those heavy red fingers out of the white flesh of her throat as if they were her neck bones, jerking him backwards off of her with a loud heave of breath, only then did he show any sign that the might be anything other than a sane, willful, dogged man performing a hard duty that finally just had to be done, like it or not." - Page 384 - 385 Metaphor & Simile Imagery! "-prying those heavy red fingers out of the white
flesh of her throat as if they were her neck bones." Film *Symbolizing the ruling force in society. *Dark and foreboding atmosphere. *Imprisonment *Neutral atmosphere "Rooted in reality" diegetic sound:
