As a novel of the late 1900s, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was a product of Kesey's drug stimulated imagination, and much of the original material was written under the influence of LSD and peyote which Kesey took to induce in himself a state of mind similar to that of his narrator, the schizophrenic Indian Chief Broom.
