Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:

A Clockwork Orange is the daring and electrifying book by Anthony Burgess that inspired one of the most notorious films ever made, beautifully repackaged as part of the Penguin Essentials range.
'What's it going to be then, eh?'
In this nightmare vision of youth in revolt, fifteen-year-old Alex and his friends set out on a diabolical orgy of robbery, rape, torture and murder. Alex is jailed for his teenage delinquency and the State tries to reform him - but at what cost?
Social prophecy? Black comedy? Study of freewill? A Clockwork Orange is all of these. It is also a dazzling experiment in language, as Burgess creates a new language - 'nadsat', the teenage slang of a not-too-distant future.
'Every generation should discover this book' Time Out
'A gruesomely witty cautionary tale' Time
'Not only about man's violent nature and his capacity to choose between good and evil. It is about the excitements and intoxicating effects of language' Daily Telegraph
'I do not know of any other writer who has done as much with language...a very funny book' William S. Burroughs
'One of the cleverest and most original writers of his generation' The Times
Anthony Burgess was born in Manchester in 1917. He studied English at Manchester University and joined the army in 1940 where he spent six years in the Education Corps. After demobilization, he worked first as a college lecturer in Speech and Drama and then as a grammar-school master before becoming an education officer in the Colonial Service, stationed in Malay and Borneo. In 1959 Burgess was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour and decided to become a full-time writer. Despite being given less than a year to live, Burgess went on to write at least a book a year - including A Clockwork Orange (1962), M/F (1971), Man of Nazareth (1979), Earthly Powers (1980) and The Kingdom of the Wicked (1985) - and hundreds of book reviews right up until his death. He was also a prolific composer and produced many full-scale works for orchestra and other media during his lifetime. Anthony Burgess died in 1993.

Recenzii

Almost 50 years after Anthony Burgess's 1962 novella of juvenile delinquency, today's 21st-century-post-conscription, post-short-sharp-shock, post-Asbo age seems like prophecy.
A piece that, in its focus on youthful disaffection and the state's attempts to control antisocial behaviour, is as pertinent as it was 50 years ago. Maybe even more so ... This "right nasty little shocker", as Burgess put it, still has the power to disturb.
This high-octane adaptation of Anthony Burgess's Clockwork Orange has lost none of its impact ... It's not an easy watch - but then, with Burgess's urgent commentary on the mechanisation of human society and its inevitably violent consequences seeming just as relevant now as it was in 1962, it never should be.
It seems even more relevant as a commentary on the "disaffected youth" ... high art constantly pushes up against ultraviolence
It sizzles with energy but also leaves the audience deeply unsettled.

Caracteristici
