At the end of the novel, McMurphy proves to be a Christ figure because he stands up for George and in return gets EST, gets betrayed by Billy, and receives a lobotomy. The idea that sometimes one must sacrifice himself for the greater good is still a relevant message in today’s society because it is important to stand up for other’s who cannot stand up for themselves. For example, Nelson Mandela peacefully protested in South Africa against apartheid and was jailed in doing so, but he did it for the sake of

Many people dislike the idea of change, because consistency is comforting. However, as time passes, things inevitably transform, as shown by E. B. White’s Once More to the Lake. He writes this essay in order to pass on the idea that one must accept the inevitable changes around oneself in order to grow up.
