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.

We all have that story that lingers in the back of our minds. The one story that changes every time we tell it, like a fairy tale whose ending continually morphs into a different happily-ever-after over time. This one story continues to change and spin until there is little truth left and embellishment seems to be the only thing remaining. The names have been scattered across the winds and the plot may have turned itself upside down, but considering the different versions told over the years, they still hold some ounce of truth, even if the story may be fictional. The meaning and emotions of the event still hold true and they continue to exist in the story, as it is the one part that isn’t changed from the beginning, even if it is not clear or obvious.
