She wanted to be the head of everything, and no one was to be stricter than her. The author Ken Kesey wrote this book to portray how one of the main characters in the book, Nurse Ratched, is controlling of everyone around her, even though she’s a woman. During this time period, women weren’t mostly in charge, compared to men, so by her representing the “combine” she showed that women do have the power to be in control. All three characters in this book were affected differently, they all show how the common theme was involved, the affects of war on the
Birling tries to intimidate Inspector Goole by boasting about his status and the type of people he knows, for example when Birling mentions the engagement between Sheila and Gerald Croft - a name made famous by 'Croft's limited', Birling brings this up to intimate the Inspector as Birling expects his status to buy him away from trouble and put him above the law. Birling becomes impatient easily and loses his temper quickly as he realises Goole doesn't want to play along with his tactics of trying to avoid confrontation about his responsibility with Eva Smith's death. He doesn't want to accept the fact he might have given a reason for her to kill herself and reckons she is the one at fault, he's pompous and sexist and abdicating his responsibility when being interviewed. Birling is also presented to expect him to gain respect and wishes for everyone to agree with his capitalist attitude. He believes himself to be superior and tries to take hold and control the interview with the Inspector when he abruptly comments on how he doesn't like his 'tone', which is ironic as Birling's 'tone' has been unacceptable and spiteful towards the inspector throughout their interview, proving his confidence and his big headed
They had the perception of nurses that they were bimbos and objects of extracurricular activity. Developing through the years the media have also shaped the stereotype of nurses as the battle-axe or matron figure an overweight, asexual, fearsome female who was of a tyrannical nature (Hall and Ritchie, 2009). They have also presumed that nurses were very bossy, stern and firm in their position, like a matron figure that Hattie Jacques acted in the Carry on Film (Carry on nurse, 1959). It seemed that nurses were more worried about working in a clan and tidy ward than caring for patients and making them feel comfortable or showing empathy towards their
The Hero Within Many American writers utilize the archetype of the hero within their literature. For the most part, typical fictional novels are based around a heroic protagonist that is able to overcome some type of hardship or exhibit adversity. It is often difficult to distinguish the veritable hero from the assumed hero. Ken Kesey plays around with the classic characterization of a hero in his novel, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Nurse Ratched, the authoritative figure who controls the ward, is believed to be providing help for mentally ill men.
In the book one flew over the cuckoo’s nest the head nurse Ms. Ratched has a set system in which she run the mental facility. Nurse Ratched runs the ward in a totalitarian manner. More or less a matriarchy... where she as the female powered runs every major aspect of the ward. The big Nurse uses persuasive tactics to get the patients to conform to her style in operating the ward. Her ward is operating as a machine that is dull and lust less.
Legal responsibilities and interpretations of the laws governing the actions of the nurse are ever changing, and are an area that leads many nurses to question their own ethics because of the fear of lawsuits. Nurses usually approach the ethical responsibility of nursing with great drive and passion rather than apprehension. Because of the cultural differences and beliefs in America there are also vast differences in individual ethics. None of these are necessarily right or wrong, they are just different. The duties of the nurse are first and foremost, to be a patient advocate and to ensure that the patient has the best possible quality of life, and maintains the most dignity and individuality possible.
The root of Creon’s immoral behavior, towards Antigone, is not an inability to distinguish between what is wrong and what is right, but rather a fear of what would happen if he were to choose the morally right way to function. In the play, Creon says that he is very afraid to stray from the established laws in anyway, until the very day he dies (Sophocles 1495). Creon is a power-hungry leader. He is developing into a tyrant. Creon is compared to “a politician without the capacity to be a statesman, because he cannot resist the temptations of power” (Winnington-Ingram).
He lies, manipulates, deceives, steals, and connives. He is out for himself and only himself not caring who he hurts along the way A clear example of how good vs. evil. There is nothing good to his nature. The misfit and the grandmother both could fall into good vs evil. in "A Good Man is Hard to Find" the grandmother is out for herself she is far more sinister than she tries to lead other people to believe.
A major problem with sexual harassment, however, is that victims don’t always report it for various reasons which we will discuss later in this review. Within the Canadian Forces, women have become integrated and work right along-side male counterparts. Women can hold any job that a man can as well as fight in combat areas. While they are allowed to work side-by-side, women often face harassment in the work zones and a lot of times, it is not reported and/or nothing is done about it. Military organizations in general are often viewed as a “man’s job” by many because of the stereotypic male characteristics of combat positions such as aggression, courage, and strength.
