The Affirmative Grotesque and A Carnival of Fears in Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. ******* The word "grotesque" is very difficult in its definition. When commonly used, it means strange, fantastic and ugliness. It describes a distorted and disturbing world that often occasions delight. It is dark, sometimes humours and fantastic to disturb and please. This term plays an important role in literature especially in the postmodern world. As a style it expresses fascination with the irrational disturb in cosmic order, and economic chaos. The aim of this study is to describe the origins of the term "grotesque" and discuss the range and breathe of its applications. This can be seen through the work of the American novelist Ken Kesey's One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest 1962. This study will discover a strain of affirmation which allows the possibility for the affirmation life and at the same time disjoins the reader from the world he or she is acquainted with personally.
