In Ken Kesey’s novel “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, the nurse Miss Ratched is a fine example of a realistic fictional villain. Possession of three key components is essential in identifying what makes Miss Ratched a villian. Motive is what drives the villain to commit the very acts that allow them to be considered evil in the first place, and often drive their entire being as a character. While they must possess motive, they must also have a sense of morals that coincides with their motives (typically evil, or distorted) and follow their moral compass in a way that often causes trouble for those around them. Additionally, a villain is frequently associated with their opposite; the hero who combats them. Kesey’s character perfectly aligns with these three categories of what makes a villain, and it is unquestionable that she is the villain of the novel.

She’s simple in the way her life is structured and how she decides to decipher her decisions. Jess’s personality--to me, I consider her bubbly, outgoing and somewhat blunt, or straight to the point.

Perspective of Good and Evil An individual chooses the perspective they take. They perspective they chose can bring out the good and evil within. This is proven in Esther Claes’ “The Star” when the main character chooses to see the world from a different perspective, a selfish perspective.
