Abstract: The theme of the "American Dream is not a new one. It is rooted in American Literature since David Thoreau and Edward Albee; This study sets out to explore the way three-novelists in particular deal with it in their works: Ken Kesey in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest; (1962), J.D. Salinger in The Catcher in the Rye (1951), and Joseph Heller in Catch-22 ( 1961). The three heroes of these novels try to live, in their different ways, the American Dream of escaping conditioning forces and getting closer to nature.
