In the opening of the novel, Kesey reveals to us the instable mind and the lack of confidence of the supposedly 6-foot-7 inches Chief Bromden.
Ware explains that Chief Bromden lack of self confidence and self-belief stems from the "result of Bromden's growing up in a sub-culture that is in its final stage of sociocultural disintegration" During our first group meeting, we delved into the loss of identity and how ironic it is for Chief Bromden who is portrayed as a massive Indian to feel simultaneously so small.
We supposed that Chief Bromden felt so loss and insecure is not only because he is in a domineering mental asylum that only exacerbates the patients' conditions but also because he is torn between his ancestral Indian heritage and his current white, Angle-Saxon environment.
Similarly, Ware states "Because Bromden is torn between the desire to maintain his Indian heritage and the necessity of developing behavior acceptable to the dominant white culture, he experiences an identity crisis" Pic 34 Furthermore, the cultural critic also incorporates her literary criticism with historical background during Bromden's childhood in the s and s.
The Dawes Act of seemingly integrated Native Americans into the white American culture but ultimately failed as the act only succeeded in reducing tribal land holdings.
Ware notes "As whites moved onto the former Indian holdings, tribal organization disappeared, and this loss of tribal unity caused a loss of pride in self and in tribal customs" Her analysis further emphasizes our belief in that Kesey not only deals with the corrupted domineering rules of the s society in the novel but also the ongoing conflict between Native Americans and Anglo-Saxon during the counterculture.
Furthermore, the white's desire for land and water resources worsens the Native Americans' sense of identity in the s and s. White, with their ethnocentrism, believed that "Indians would be able to raise their standard of living only if the government fully developed the Indians' land and water resources" The further loss of Bromden's old way of life only exacerbates his outlook on the whites and individual hope.
In the second and third meeting, we discussed on the issue of how Chief Bromden took on his white mother's last name instead of his father's.
It was also noteworthy that his father, named "Tee Ah Millatoona" or "The Pine that Stands Tallest on the Mountain," gradually deviates from the glory of his name as he faces pressure of white U. When "Bromden no longer sees a strong father figure but a changed man," Bromden further loses his sense of Indian identity and his belief in how great he is Both Ware and we realize that even Bromden's actual name had been ridiculed into "Chief Broom.
Our group noted that as Chief Bromden inherits the last name of his white mother, Mary Louise Bromden, instead of his father's, Kesey weaves the theme of the dominance of matriarchy in the s.
Through Bromden's flashbacks, readers understand how dominant and forceful his mother was toward his father; in fact, his mother was the one who coerced his father to sell the tribal lands to the white officials. Lastly, Kesey portrays Chief Bromden undergoing through a transformation as he starts to feel "big" again because of novel's hero, Randle McMurphy.
When Chief Bromden "looks out the window one evening and sees the countryside for the first time in twenty years," readers comprehend that Chief Bromden has finally develop the courage to see the outside world Furthermore, when Bromden sees a dog lopping off toward the highway, Bromden is seeking the fre edom that the dog possesses but he lacks.
It is only after mercifully killing McMurphy that "Bromden runs toward the highway in the same direction the dog had run" Chief Bromden, who has been defined, directed, and judged by others all his life, is finally able to liberate himself from the corrupted mental ward understanding that his fate is uncertain but that he is, definitely, escaping toward freedom.
We really feel Ware's cultural criticism correctly matched up with our viewpoints on Chief Bromden's struggle and conflict within the novel. Sometimes, readers may be so involved with the novel's plot regarding McMurphy and Big Nurse that readers may overlook the importance of Chief Bromden, from whom the story is revealed, in the novel.
To us, Chief Bromden not only acts as a key figure in the story plot but also the symbolic figure embodying what many go through even today:From a general summary to chapter summaries to explanations of famous quotes, the SparkNotes One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest Study Guide has everything you need to ace quizzes, tests, and essays.
