The most important likeness between the publication and the film is the continuous battle among McMurphy and Nurse Ratched. They are continuously trying to gain an edge above each other to have control over the patients. This happens in both the book and the movie. McMurphy ends up becoming the biggest influence till he is wiped out at the end. Health professional Ratched winds up winning the battle by outlasting McMurphy, but also loses because McMurphys' impact has changed the attitudes in the patients permanently. The stopping to the book and the movie is also an excellent similarity between the two. Doctor Ratched makes Billy Bibbit feel accountable to the point where he kills himself. McMurphy ultimately ends up choking Health professional Ratched in the book and the movie. Then Doctor Ratched converts McMurphy right into a vegetable if you take part of McMurphys' brain out. Bromden can tell McMurphy is usually not the same after he comes back and does not enjoy it. He does not show for the old McMurphy so he kills McMurphy. After Bromden kills McMurphy he goes out from t it is contemporary society who influenced norms and urges conformity, while those individuals who decline societal landscapes and demands are the ones deemed crazy. Ken Kesey wove a similar mirror picture of society and asylums into his novel One Travelled Over the Cuckoo's Nest which usually tells the storyline of a cowboy-like outlaw called Randall McMurphy who is launched into a mental institution to contain his behavior but instead incites rebellion among the patients who suffer under the overbearing Big Health professional and helps like Doctor Spivey. McMurphy, Chief Bromden, and Harding represent a uniqueness or perhaps variation of mankind and character discarded simply by society and pressured in conformity simply by Big Registered nurse, a puppet of modern " truths, " and Doctor Spivey, a bystander similar to the typical American.
