'I do not know of any other writer who has done as much with language ... a very funny book' William S. Burroughs Fifteen-year-old Alex doesn't just like ultra-violence - he also enjoys rape; drugs and Beethoven's ninth. He and his gang of droogs rampage through a dystopian future; hunting for terrible thrills. But when Alex finds himself at the mercy of the state and subject to the ministrations of Dr Brodsky; and the mind-altering treatment of the Ludovico Technique; he discovers that fun is no longer the order of the day. The basis for Stanley Kubrick's notorious 1971 film; A Clockwork Orange is both a virtuoso performance from an electrifying prose stylist and a serious exploration of the morality of free will. In his introduction; Blake Morrison situates A Clockwork Orange within the context of Anthony Burgess's many other works; explores the author's unhappiness with the Stanley Kubrick film version; analyses the composition of the Nadsat argot spoken by Alex and his droogs; and examines the influences on Burgess's unique; eternally original style. With an Introduction by Blake Morrison
