* TheAllConcealingI: ''Somtimes a Great Notion'' has a strange example. The entire novel is written in the first-person, but the narrator can vary, and there are no explicit indications that the narrator has shifted. There are, however, subtle clues, such as the new narrator mentioning the previous narrator in third person.

To some, Ken Kesey's crowning achievement is not the composition of two classic 20th century novels, but instead his leadership of the [[NewAgeRetroHippie Merry Pranksters]] and his role in the spread of [[TheSixties late-1960s]] psychedelia[[note]]Both the culture and the drugs.[[/note]]. Ideal places to find information on the adventures of Kesey and the Pranksters are ''The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test'' by Tom Wolfe, and to a lesser extent ''Hell's Angels'' by HunterSThompson and the poem "First Party at Ken Kesey's with Hell's Angels" by Creator/AllenGinsberg.

* TitledAfterTheSong[=/=]LiteraryAllusionTitle: ''Sometimes a Great Notion'' takes its title from the song "Goodnight, Irene", popularised by Lead Belly. ''One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'' takes its title from a nursery rhyme, which is quoted in the epigram of the novel.
