Ken Kesey’s Life Experiences Influencing His Writing Section I: Introduction Ken Kesey’s life and experiences influenced the writing of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Mr. Kesey was only 26 years old when this book was published in 1962.

The protagonist of the story is known as Ichabod Crane, a very eccentric scientist who was stationed in Sleepy Hollow after being exiled from his town in Northern Connecticut. Throughout the Gothic era the characters have been most important to the story. The characters are written in a way that the reader can relate to them and make them feel like they are actually in the story. The characters of the Headless Horseman and Ichabod Crane are two examples of characters that define the Gothic Literary era. In Washington Irving’s Sleepy Hollow, the Antagonist is known as the Headless Horseman, a paranormal being that terrorizes the town and beheading all of those who oppose him “…the Headless Horseman, who had been heard several times of late, patrolling the country; and, it was said, tethered his horse nightly among the graves in the churchyard.” (Irving) His gruesome and tragic death dates back the American Revolution.
He feels alienated, meaningless, and dehumanized. Gregor is not capable of establishing a relationship, he says: “The steady stream of faces never become anything closer than acquaintances” (Kafka 8). Even as a human he feels unable to connect with others. This feeling becomes magnified through his transformation; not only is he emotionally alienated from society, he is also physically isolated in his room. According to Freudian’s theory he displays signs of a core issue referred to as Fear of Intimacy.
One evening while at home after observing that the laboratory and my masters quarters were empty I stayed awake waiting for him. I was stirred for a moment by a noise coming form the back door. I rushed to see if my master was using the back entrance and came face to face with who I knew must be Mr. Hyde. Pure evil was this man that stood before me. Evil like none I had ever seen before, it seem almost to seep right out of his pores.
When the patients start to follow the ways of McMurphy, they start to recognize that he is an excellent guide in attaining individuality. One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest reveals that a true leader empowers his followers and gives them strength, rather than taking that strength away. During most of the group therapy sessions, the patients have a small window of time to express their feelings or reveal something that has been on their mind constantly. One session in specific, McMurphy proposes and idea to watch TV in the afternoon and do the cleaning chores in the night because the World Series is on and he wants to watch it. Nurse Ratched, surprisingly, agrees to the suggestion but wants to hold a vote on who wants to change the schedule so the patients can watch the World Series.
Edward Bellamys’, Looking Backward describes the late nineteenth century and all of its major problems by creating a character that time travels to the twentieth century to find that the problems no longer exist. The story begins with an aristocrat named Julian West who lives in the late nineteenth century Boston. Julian has a good life with some wealth and a lovely bride to be named Edith Bartlett.

Though I believe this power quest is best shown through Nurse Ratchet’s power over the patients in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey. Ken Kesey begins his novel by showing the protagonist Randle McMurphy arriving at an Oregon mental institution in a police car, this shows that McMurphy is already suppressed and most likely not enjoying it. McMurphy was sentenced to the mental institution after getting in trouble with the law and at the prison. While at the institution McMurphy is monitored by nurses both male and female. The head nurse, Nurse Ratchet, is the main antagonist and the person most interested in attaining power.
