precisely related to an unquestionable tragedy, proves that modern fictionists are indeed capable of writing this form of literature. The success of this novel as a play and as a film also attests to this. It seems that characters such as R.P.McMurphy are suitable to audiences in the twentieth century, because the ruling aristocrats of Shakespearean tragedy are unfamiliar, and do not represent the modern person. Perhaps, it is also that the contemporary audiences enjoy seeing the underdog prevail, because it instills hope and inspiration. Both of these texts are fabulous works of art, and although they are geared to different audiences at different points in history, this only enhances them as it allows us to examine ourselves. We do this not through the literature itself, but

through the people it is targeted at. From this we can observe how the human race has reached where we stand today.
