Essay Topic 1

The trips the patients take seem to be the times when the patients are the happiest. Why do you think this is the case? Is it merely because of the change of scenery or because of the trips' activities? Do you think these trips were a good idea for the patients? Why or why not? Were these trips a good idea for the nurses who allowed them? Why or why not?

In the end, what does McMurphy really 'win' in the ward as a result of his actions? Anything?
