Chief Bromden in Ken Keseys One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest :: One Flew Over Cuckoos Nest
Chief Bromden in One Flew everywhere the Cuckoos Nest   Chief Bromden is half American Indian. His father was a header named Tee Ah Millatoona, which means The-pine-that-stands-tallest-on-the-mountain. That is why he is able to use the gloss chief. He took on his mothers last name of Bromden. He grew up in the Columbian gorge. The chief is massive and tall and would appear very scare and threatening to those who meet him. He was committed to the hospital and has been there for long-life than anyone else, for over 15 years.   He was put in there afterwards World War two. The chief was an electricians assistant in a instruct camp before the army shipped him off to Germany. It is probably due to operative with electronics and the added strain of going to war that has led the chief to have such(prenominal) an unhealthy preoccupation with electronics.   The chief has led everyone in the hospital, both round and patients to believe he is deaf and dumb. A s a young pincer he was always ignored, by fellow students and adults, this could have been because he was so strange looking, being half American Indian and appearing so big and menacing yet being quite shy. I had to hold on acting deaf if I wanted to hear at all. He felt rejected by his peers throughout life and so as an adult decided that as people acted like he was lightless he might as well disappear, It wasnt me that started acting deaf, it was people that stolon started acting like I was too dumb to hear or see or say anything at all. So pretending to be deaf and dumb was probably a defence mechanism. For him, his silence is withal extremely potent. As he is able to hear everything that went on in the meetings where the doctors and nurses discuss the future of the patients. The doctors and nurses dont hesitate to say anything in front of him because they turn over he cant hear. They dont bother not talking out loud somewhat their hate secrets when Im nearby because they think Im deaf and dumb.   The chief sees things in factual metaphors, he sees McMurphy as being really big in surface because he is so brave (and big in spirit).
