Notă biografică

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.


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.


A stage version of the perenially popular cult novella, A Clockwork Orange adapted by the original author Anthony Burgess.
