  • ASIN: Book Description The imaginative characters and innovative story structure made Ken Kesey?s debut novel ripe for commentary. Take a closer look at One Flew Over the Cuckoo?s Nest, which also enjoyed critical success as a play and a film. The title, Ken Kesey's One Flew Over Cuckoo's Nest, part of Chelsea House Publishers' Modern Critical Interpretations series, presents the most important 20th-century criticism on Ken Kesey's One Flew Over Cuckoo's Nest through extracts of critical essays by well-known literary critics. This collection of criticism also features a short biography on Ken Kesey, a chronology of the author's life, and an introductory essay written by Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities, Yale University. Customer Reviews: Complex and tragic I have always regarded `One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest' as one of the best movies ever made. I never read the book because, well... I'd already seen the movie. But the book was highly regarded and since I hadn't seen the movie in at least 20 years, I thought it was time to read Kesey's novel.

He earned a degree in journalism from the University of Oregon in 1957 and then studied creative writing at Stanford in the late 50s. While at Stanford he tried hallucinogens for the first time after volunteering for a government research program at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Menlo Park, CA. As part of the program, Kesey was given LSD, psilocybin, mescaline and AMT. It was during this same period that he worked as a psychiatric attendant at the hospital, an experience he used when writing his novel 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'. While at Stanford, Kesey lived at Perry Lane, a bohemian community in Palo Alto where he became known for throwing parties where psychoactive chemicals often found their way into the punch bowl. After this novel was published, Kesey purchased property in La Honda, California where he and the Merry Pranksters threw the now famous Acid Test parties during the mid 60s. The events, fueled by diverse and intriguing guests, day-glo decorations in the trees, music from hidden speakers, and plenty of LSD, are now well documented. In 1964, Kesey and the Merry Pranksters set out on their cross-country bus trip to the East coast in a psychedelically painted school bus named Furthur. Along the way they met, among others

      Kesey, Ken Elton, , American novelist and counterculture figure, b. La Junta, Colo.; grad. Univ. of Oregon (1957), Stanford Univ. (1960). While a student he volunteered for a hospital study of mind-altering drugs, substances that were to shape much of his life and work. He also briefly worked as a psychiatric ward attendant, an experience pivotal to the creation of One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest (1962; film, 1975), his most famous novel, which details the struggle between rebellious individuality, represented by inmate R. P. McMurphy, and the forces of repression, personified by Nurse Ratched. Kesey's other books include the novels Sometimes a Great Notion, (1964; film, 1971), Sailor Song (1992), and Last Go Round (1994); and essays, stories, and children's books. He was also known as the leader of the Merry Pranksters, a group of travelers, stoked by LSD, who traversed the United States in a psychedelically decorated bus in 1964.

    American actor and novelist who worked at various times as a logger, a mental-hospital attendant, a farmer and musician in a band. He became famous for writing "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" in 1962, which was made into a film in 1975 starring Jack Nicholson and directed by Michael Douglas. He won the Robert Kirsch Award given by the Los Angeles Times in 1991 for his body of work. He attended the University of Oregon, receiving a BA in 1957 and going on to study writing at Stanford, 1958-59. He was on the wrestling team. Kesey volunteered for drug experiments run by the government prior to the time that Timothy Leary started his experiments in psychedelics. His job as a psychiatric attendant for the Veteran's Administration Hospital in Menlo Park, CA in 1961 provided background for his most famous work, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." In 1962 Kesey sold the movie rights for $28,000. The film won five Oscars and reportedly made $50 million in gross earnings. He was an inspiration for many young people. With an ear for dialog and the ability to create characters that live on the page, all of his works are about prisoners, some who realize their position and rail against it, others who are just doing their time. An old fashioned kind of writer, Kesey is a moral critic. His second novel "Sometimes a Great Notion" was published in 1964. Famous for being famous, he is not taken very seriously and finds it difficult to observe people while being observed.

    Prankster History Project
    This is a site dedicated to collecting the memories and stories of anyone whose lives have been touched by Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters. Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test , glorious as it is, mostly tells the story from the Prankster's perspective (usually Sandy's), but we rarely hear the voices of Acid Test participants, early Deadheads, lesser-known Pranksters, and the countless others who played a part and whose stories are missing from the history books. In the grand, interactive tradition of the Acid Tests, this site wants to hear from all those lost voices and add them to the cacophony of Prankster history. Click here to enter the site. Page URL:

      Biography of Ken Kesey (1935-2001)
      Study Guides and Essays by Ken Kesey One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Ken Kesey Ken Kesey, the older of two sons, was born on September 17, 1935, in La Junta, Colorado. In 1946 the family moved to Springfield, Oregon, where Kesey spent several years on his family's farm. He was raised in a religious household where he developed a great appreciation for Christian fables and a Christian ethical system. During high school and later in college, Kesey was a champion wrestler, setting long-standing state records in Oregon. Voted "most likely to succeed" in high school, Kesey was an unlikely candidate to become one of the more controversial figures of his age and one of the leading figures of the counterculture. After high school, Kesey eloped with Faye Haxby, his high school sweetheart, and they had three children together: Jed, Zane, and Shannon. Kesey attended the University of Oregon with a degree in Speech and Communications. He also received a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship to enroll in the Creative Writing program at Stanford. His classmates in the program included Robert Stone, Larry McMurty, Ken Babbs, and Wendell Berry, all of whom would go on to be noted writers and lifelong friends of Kesey. While at Stanford, he participated in government-funded experiments involving chemicals at the psychology department to earn extra money. These chemicals included psilocybin, mescaline, and LSD. This experience fundamentally altered Kesey, personally and professionally. While working as an orderly at the psychiatric ward of the local VA hospital, Kesey began to have hallucinations about an Indian sweeping the floors. This formed the basis for Chief Bromden (for "broom") in

    KESEY, Ken Sometimes a Great Notion NY, Viking, (1964). His second and most ambitious novel, about a logging family in Oregon, and embodying the individualistic values that helped Kesey to become a counterculture leader and icon. This is the presumed first state, with the Viking ship on the first half-title, and in the first issue dust jacket, with the author photo credited to "Hank Krangler" and only two lines of biographical information about the author on the rear flap. A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket with creasing to the lower edge of the rear panel and mottling visible only on verso. One of the nicer copies of this title that we have seen. All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted. See more items by KESEY, Ken
