review A Clockwork Orange

A vicious fifteen year old droog is the central character of this classic In Anthony Burgess's nightmare vision of the future where criminals take over after dark the story is told by the central character Alex who talk. What s it going to be then eh A linguistic adventure O my brothers I had seen the Kubrick film and so reading the novella was on the list I very much enjoyed it was surprised to learn that American publishers and Kubrick had omitted the crucial last chapter that provides some moral denouement to the ultra violenceAs disturbingly good as this is one aspect that always comes back to me is Burgess creation of and use of the Nadsat language This provides color and mystery to the narrative and it is noteworthy that Burgess intent was to soften the blow of the violent themes of the book 2018 addendum it is a testament to great literature that a reader recalls the work years later and this is a book about which I freuently think This is a book that for me at least is connected to the Stanley Kubrick film I don t always watch a movie after I ve read the book and when I do I usually draw a distinction between the two but these two works remain indelibly connected in my mind and recollection The most noteworthy contrast is the omission of the last chapter from the film Burgess ending provides a settling of accounts while Kubrick s vision leaves the viewer edgy and uncomfortable

    Like many I suppose I saw Kubrick's film long ago without having read the book until now Part punk rock version of Finnegans Wake part scalding criticism of UK society in the 50s Burgess' dystopian Center is a real horrorshow in a non ACO interpretation of the word of violence Alex is a terrifying character every bit as evil as the Joker or Anton Chigurh whose state sponsored brainwashing is eually disturbing The prison chaplain
