    Start with an introduction, I suppose. Gradually move through your ideas, comparing and providing evidence :yep:

    only really know about Cuckoo's Nest, but introduce the fact that - contextually unusual for the time - it's Nurse Ratched who has control over the men in the novel for the majority of the book, and perhaps the conflict for control between her and McMurphy over the patients. Maybe link to the title ('Nest'); how it's ironic that even though the ward is sort of like her 'nest' she does not display any motherly qualities, she abuses her power, etc.

    I know what you mean. It might be an idea to introduce the main ideas that you're going to talk about, but only briefly... I have problems with introductions, too. :p:
