Edward Britton and Izod Wolfe are punished throughout the book showing the reader how edward is treated differently from Izod because of his background. Edward is treated better or less harshly but is despised by some of the guards and other boys at the prison, "It was because of this that certain guards - and some boys - thought that Britton was favoured, even uppity, and needed bringing down." (page. 75) by the guards like Hecht and Buckridge Both treated Edward Britton badly and wanted him gone for good, rotting in Port Arthur the prison for adults. while Edward is able to get along with some people like Mr. Patterson the surgeon.
He is almost kicked out entirely, isn’t. Patch did not like the way patients were being treated in med school. He didn’t find it fair that they couldn’t be helped because of insurance reasons. This motivates him to begin his own practice, illegally, and helps patients in need without medical insurance. Along the way, he meets a woman and falls in love with her.
Because Nurse Ratched put fear the patients’ heart, they obey her every demand. However, when the new patient McMurphy who comes from a prison work farm to the hospital, the Big Nurse Ratched starts to lose the power she has over the patients. At the end, the conflict between McMurphy and Nurse Ratched, cost McMurphy’s health, his freedom, and, finally, his life. In the novel the obvious differences between two characters mostly shown in their personality, the way threading the people and their sexual view. First of all, Nurse Ratched and McMurphy have totally different personality and different point of view.
Gangs in prison There are gangs in every prison and the guards have to keep a look out for them; recruiting new inmates “fresh meat” as the inmates call them. They victimise an inmate to join their gang. Gangs are viewed as a means of survival in a prison starved of any morals, and murder and violence is just normal routine. Many prisons are let off with being the worst prisons in the world due to the upkeep of the prison not through the violence decreasing. Venezuela’s prison La Sabeneta is one of the worst prisons due to that they have one guard to every 150 inmates.
The head nurse, Nurse Ratchet, is the main antagonist and the person most interested in attaining power. Nurse Ratchet is an evil lady who enjoys inflicting mental anguish among the patients in the institution; this pain is almost portrayed as a way to make herself feel better, feel superior. She brings up painful past events and shows absolutely no emotion or compassion for her patients. This coldness from Nurse Ratchet is what really enrages the patients causing them to rebel and repel her authority. Randle McMurphy is the patient at the Oregon institution that most rebels against Nurse Ratchet who in turn always tries to keep him in line as much as she can.
It is with this mentality that we reflect on Ken Kesey’s wonderful novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. A grim satire set amongst the patients and workers in a mental institution, Kesey’s narrative recounts the story of an unpredictable con man that pursues institutionalization as a method of breaking out from the sternness of a prison work farm. Before long, in order to lessen the sexual and emotional feebleness of the men at the institution, he begins to taunt the autocratic Nurse Ratched, irrevocably changing the future of those in the ward. “As he [Jesus] landed he saw a great throng, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a Shepherd.”(Mark 6:34) McMurphy’s entrance onto the ward is much like that of Jesus. Much like Son of God himself, McMurphy saw the people on the psychiatric ward as metaphorical sheep, leaderless and subject to the cunning fox, in the form of Nurse Ratched.
Even later on in the movie, we also see that Will is a chain smoker, violent, and has extreme trust issues. He doesn’t have any friends besides the ones he knows are loyal, and he pushes others away before they have a chance to leave him first. After a good amount of therapy sessions with a psychiatrist and friend, Sean Macdonald, by the end of the movie Will’s problem seem to be a lot more under-control than they were before. Will’s problems could have been evaluated in multiple different psychological ways, including psychoanalytic, behavioral, cognitive, humanistic, and biopsychosocial. Psychoanalytic psychology would be the best explanation for Will and his actions / words.
I feel bad and sad for the victims, because a woman can’t do anything when a man punches her. “Abusers often attempt to control and isolate victims in an effort to guard the secret of abuse and because of their jealously of any attention their partners may give or receive from family, friends, or coworkers” (Gagné 19). As the time passes, women will have bruising, bleeding, and scars that will never heal. A man hits a woman probably because he wants to act “macho”. He might be drunk or he only does it because he likes it.
And lastly, Tyrone resents taking on a family, because it kept him from making his “big break” as an actor. In the beginning it is obvious to see that the Tyrone family lives differently than most other families. For one their house has many unused and unlived in rooms. On top of that the family is always in a tailspin of emotions. One minute joking and teasing and the next fighting and yelling.
He harshly judges people throughout the story and shuts himself off from the world and people without remorse. Holden is the only person to blame for his loneliness, he tries to counteract his lonely feelings by inviting a prostitute to his room in chapter 13 and begging her
