Das Ringen um Verständnis für das Phänomen des Bösen begleitet den Menschen seit Anbeginn seiner Existenz. Ken Keseys ‚One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest‘ ist eine jener Geschichten, die von menschlichen Schicksalen als Opfer und Täter erzählen. Dem Leser des Romans begegnen dabei vielfältigste Formen willentlich zugefügten Leids. Dieses Buch unternimmt nun auf theoretischer Basis philosophischer Erkenntnisse den Versuch, die Elemente des Bösen im Roman zu analysieren und deren Ursprung einer Interpretation zuzuführen. In der Folge werden jene Aspekte des Bösen mit der Darstellung derselbigen in der gleichnamigen Theateradaptation (Dale Wassermann) und dem Film (Miloš Forman) verglichen. Die Studie untersucht hierbei Parallelen und Unterschiede in der Umsetzung der verschiedenen Personifikationen und Manifestationen des Bösen. Hinsichtlich der gewonnen Erkenntnisse gibt dieses Buch dem Leser Angebote möglicher Sinndeutungen.

A Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition of a counterculture classic with a foreword by Chuck Palahniuk Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Ken Kesey’s 1962 novel has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. Now in a new deluxe edition with a foreword by Chuck Palahniuk and cover by Joe Sacco, here is the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially the tyrannical Big Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her. We see the struggle through the eyes of Chief Bromden, the seemingly mute half-Indian patient who witnesses and understands McMurphy’s heroic attempt to do battle with the powers that keep them all imprisoned.
