Choose 1 of the 3 topics and write a 2 FULL page response in MLA format. I have attached the text “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.pdf”.
Topics:
1. How is McMurphy the symbol of a savior in the novel? How does he “save” several of
the patients in the ward? What are your views on the ultimate price that he pays in order
to be a savior?
2. How would the story be different if it took place today? Do you think McMurphy would
have had the same outcome? How would modern times impact the story and the main
characters? Elaborate as much as you can.
3. Provide an alternate ending to the story. How would you have ended this story? How
would this new alternate ending impact Nurse Ratched, McMurphy, the Chief, and other
patients in the ward? Elaborate as much as you can.
Instructions: The response is informal, and you may use first person. It is your own
opinion, but you do need to back up what you say by referring to situations or quotes (if you can)
from the novel.
If you do not use quotes, at the very least, you need to refer to events or situations that happen in
the novel to support your claims.
