A Clockwork Orange Book Description:

Fully restored edition of Anthony Burgess' original text of A Clockwork Orange, with a glossary of the teen slang 'Nadsat', explanatory notes, pages from the original typescript, interviews, articles and reviews Edited by Andrew Biswell With a Foreword by Martin Amis 'It is a horrorshow story ...' Fifteen-year-old Alex likes lashings of ultraviolence. He and his gang of friends rob, kill and rape their way through a nightmarish future, until the State puts a stop to his riotous excesses. But what will his re-education mean? A dystopian horror, a black comedy, an exploration of choice, A Clockwork Orange is also a work of exuberant invention which created a new language for its characters. This critical edition restores the text of the novel as Anthony Burgess originally wrote it, and includes a glossary of the teen slang 'Nadsat', explanatory notes, pages from the original typescript, interviews, articles and reviews, shedding light on the enduring fascination of the novel's 'sweet and juicy criminality'. Anthony Burgess was born in Manchester in 1917 and educated at Xaverian College and Manchester University. He spent six years in the British Army before becoming a schoolmaster and colonial education officer in Malaya and Brunei. After the success of his Malayan Trilogy, he became a full-time writer in 1959. His books have been published all over the world, and they include The Complete Enderby, Nothing Like the Sun, Napoleon Symphony, Tremor of Intent, Earthly Powers and A Dead Man in Deptford. Anthony Burgess died in London in 1993. Andrew Biswell is the Professor of Modern Literature at Manchester Metropolitan University and the Director of the International Anthony Burgess Foundation. His publications include a biography, The Real Life of Anthony Burgess, which won the Portico Prize in 2006. He is currently editing the letters and short stories of Anthony Burgess.

A Clockwork Orange Book Description:

'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

A Clockwork Orange Restored Text Book Description:

A newly revised text for A Clockwork Orange’s 50th anniversary brings the work closest to its author’s intentions. A Clockwork Orange is as brilliant, transgressive, and influential as when it was published fifty years ago. A nightmare vision of the future told in its own fantastically inventive lexicon, it has since become a classic of modern literature and the basis for Stanley Kubrick’s once-banned film, whose recent reissue has brought this revolutionary tale on modern civilization to an even wider audience. Andrew Biswell, PhD, director of the International Burgess Foundation, has taken a close look at the three varying published editions alongside the original typescript to recreate the novel as Anthony Burgess envisioned it. We publish this landmark edition with its original British cover and six of Burgess’s own illustrations.

Gewalt in Stanley Kubricks A Clockwork Orange Book Description:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Film und Fernsehen, Note: 1,7, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Institut für Kommunikainswissenschaften und Medienlehre), Veranstaltung: Proseminar 1, 12 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der vorliegenden Seminararbeit soll die Gewalt in Stanley Kubrick Film Clockwork Orange aus dem Jahre 1971 analysiert werden. Ein Aspekt der Analyse wird die Bezugnahme auf die Wirkungsthesen von Gewalt nach Kunczik darstellen: Hier wird ein besonderes starker Fokus auf die, auf Aristoteles zurückgehende Katharsisthese gelegt, da sie im Film auf spezielle Art und Weise eingesetzt wird. Ein weiterer Aspekt der Arbeit wird eine quantitative Untersuchung der Gewalt darstellen, wobei die filmisch inszenierte Gewalt in sieben verschiedene Kategorien, wie Schlagen, Bedrohen oder Vergewaltigung geklustert wird. Für deren Analyse wird an den Anfang der eine allgemeine Definition von Gewalt gestellt.
