One aspect of Kesey’s display of his distaste for influential women, is displayed through the character, Nurse Ratched (Big Nurse). The nurse used her calm composure to manipulate the men in the ward. In one part of the novel, Chief, the main character, observes that the nurse’s expression is “smiling, pitying, patient, and disgusting all at once---a trained expression” (Kesey, 176). This shows that Nurse Ratched is deceitful. She isn’t honest with her actions and she put on an act to trick people into trusting her.

I also threw little light on his inquiries, for I hardly knew what to hide, and what to reveal”(Bronte 379). Avoiding a brawl, Ellen tries to protect Linton by lying to Heathcliff about what really is going on. This keeps Linton at ease and considering what Heathcliff doesn’t know will not hurt him, which demonstrates Nelly’s apparent helping trait.
