Echoes of celilo falls and native voices in one flew over the cuckoo's nest

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Approaching Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest with a focus on Bromden and his relationship to Celilo Falls reveals a deeper portrait of Bromden's identity and motivations. Milos Forman's adaptation of Cuckoo's Nest, however, eliminates Celilo and its role in Bromden's identity, leaving viewers without content for his silence.
