One of the triumphs of Ken Kesey's novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, is its ability to provide an inside view of a mental institution free from the stigma that such a facility almost always invites. The first-person narrative of a patient, Chief Bromden, makes the asylum setting ordinary, and encourages the reader to invest in the personalities of its inhabitants instead of perceiving the characters as mere stereotypes of disability. Kesey's inclusion of Bromden's delusions within the narrative itself, which are at first a disruption to the reader used to linear narratives of the real, become merely another narrative norm for the reader as the novel progresses. Retrospective thought allows the reader to discover that while Bromden's disability makes him different, it is not debilitating for him as a narrator, nor, more importantly, as a man. Such insights into Bromden and the others initiate in the reader a reassessment of potentially unexamined perceptions of mental institutions, their inhabitants, and lead the reader to review the origins of concepts such as disability and normalcy. Yet the text is not without its problems: the most significant of which is the portrayal of gender in relation to disability. The text's depiction of this relation is more problematic: It could be suggested that the link goes some way to undermine the success of the novel's individualistic approach to, and questioning of, disability. This is seen especially through the novel's reinforcement of the long-standing and stereotypical dialogue between disability and emasculation, a connection so engrained in society that it can be described as a "cultural script," which Rosemarie Garland- Thompson describes in "The Politics of Staring" (66). In crude terms, it could be suggested that while the novel breaks down prejudices regarding mental disabilities, it builds upon prejudices regarding gender.

Caroline's paper addresses the specific intersection between gender and disability in Ken Kesey's novel, and the idea behind my question on the book was to invite speculation on the fact that a text might have emancipatory politics in certain areas, but that these may well be qualified by other aspects of its representation. The novel is excellent for beginning to think about the ways in which disability can be portrayed and discussed in relation to other social forms and processes, and Caroline's work is an exemplary account of such an investigation.

Ken Kesey rolled on in his tractor, minus the load of hay his cows were now munching in a wet, emerald field. A dozen peacocks sashayed about like runway models. Actually, they were more interesting than runway models; they made you think how much more interesting runway models would be if they paused now and then to emit piercing screams. Kesey shut off the machine and clambered down, consciousness incarnate at fifty-six. On this rainy April morning, his ex-wrestler’s amble was a little stiff. We shook hands under the blooming lavender tangle of a wisteria vine that groped like one of Faulkner’s enormous sentences across the front of Kesey’s barn toward the five-pointed star on the hayloft door.
