A Book That Should Not Be Banned
By: Olivia Gideon
The novel, One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest By Ken Kesey, is about a ward of mentally unstable patients. The themes of the book are society's destruction of natural impulses, the importance of expressing sexuality, women as castrators, and the false diagnosis of insanity. One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest is an extraordinary novel that has to do with real life situations. It is not just a book about crazy people. This novel has left a mark on the literature of our time and on everyone who has read it.
The novel expresses the lives of mentally unstable patients and their daily struggles. It refers to authorities that our more powerful than us, and the fear of standing up to them. Some say that the book deals with inappropriate and vulgar situations, but it only forces us to look at the darker side of society and civilazation.
