    As you'd expect from a collection of four novels written over a period of twenty years or this is uneven The first two novels hand together uite well In the first Enderby tries to avoid engaging with the outside world; in the second he is forced to do so As with anything by Burgess it's funny wordy and vocabulary expanding Enderby himself is a very ambiguous fellow He's a truly horrific human being but also st

    Burgess was an elitist bastard but he wrote brilliant satire especially about the counter culture For example to avoid any gender bias in English Burgess suggested contracting the subject pronouns she he and it into one subject pronoun shit It's been a couple of decades since I read the Enderby series but the misadventures of Enderby steeped in the classics baited but unhooked by modernity stay with me

    Very funny The involuntary adventures of a poet who would much prefer to be left alone The stories become and fantastic and 'over the top' as do the locations from Brighton to London Rome to Spain Tangier Indian

    Enderby's Dark Lady is worth it alone still one of the funniest books I've ever read

    The first two books of the series are good Enderby is not a typical protagonist and he deals with issues humourous as it may be of dealing with stomach noises and catching fleeting thoughts to paper as after all it is the profession He is agei

    Enderby is a delightful character I'd actually forgotten all about him until landing on goodreads and starting to think seriously about what good books I've read over the years If you like A Hitchhiker's Guide The Importanc

Collected here for the first time under one cover are the four novels featuring Anthony Burgess's gre. Inside Mr Enderby 4 stars I thought this was a wonder when I read it in 1997 Burgess is for word lovers One of the things that makes him funny is his insertion of the perfect overwrought word at the right moment His gift very much reminds me of Martin Amis s work though they are strikingly dissimilar in other ways Enderby Outside 3 stars Reading this in 2013 I was disappointed I lost interest in the narrative toward the middle And the last scene where Enderby meets his muse I did not like at all Though technically there was no falling off of techniue In other words it doesn t get sloppy I simply lost interest in it The reason for this was the discourse on poetry which hasn t aged wellI have yet to read the last two novels here Clockwork Testament and Enderby s Dark Lady

Atest comic creation the perdurable poet FX Enderby With the most offhand scurrilous charm Burgess il. A clever and hilarious series is to be found in the Enderby novels Enderby himself is one of Burgess s finest achievements A bumbling dyspeptic rude impotent elitist poet whose personal life always seems to fall apart in service to art for better or for worse so to speak He is an outcast much like Burgess finding it hard to make a home of anywhere All he has is his muse and his love of art and he must betray both to connect with the outside worldBurgess s key themes make an appearance Burgess s apostate catholic theology pairs well with scatological humor ponderings on the worth of poetry and the occasional uiet moment of honest reflection on the human condition that peer through the witticism and cynicism of Enderby and his peers The first two novels are the strongest Burgess originally imagined them as one novel but due to a thankfully false prognosis that gave him a year to live he feared he wouldn t be able to finish it He released the first half as Inside Mr Enderby and Enderby Outside was finished a few years later The other two novels are strange entities largely given life by Enderby himself who I never seemed to tire of Burgess had things say with these two novels but it almost seems like he tacked Enderby to it for lack of a better idea Not that I m complaining again Enderby is worth the ride The Clockwork Testament or Enderby s End is a fictional re creation of Burgess s own experience dealing with the aftermath of Kubrick s adaptation of A Clockwork Orange Enderby waxes his most elitist here and has a disdain for the social issues of the day only wishing to stick to his expertise language When Kubrick pulled his film from cinemas based on reports that youth who had viewed the film engaged in imitative violence Burgess felt like Kubrick had betrayed art to censorship For Burgess if one film or novel or play could be held responsible for the actions of the viewer reader or audience member then they all could be Not even Shakespeare would be safe from censorship and public outrage Enderby clarifies the themes of ACO original sin free will and what not Enderby s Dark Lady seems to be a self lashing all too catholic for his pastiche Shakespearean novel Nothing Like the Sun and perhaps an earlier tendency toward casual racism However Dark Lady has some of the most genuinely hilarious seuences of the series Enderby s impotence and hypocrisy is on full display here at times comic and others genuine Again the latter two novels are far too humorous and human to dismissI would highly recommend reading the first two novels especially if you enjoy Burgess The latter two I would recommend as well but only if the reader has fallen for the title character He is despicably anti social but ineluctable in his honesty Enderby is a poet He is never spurious or perfidious even when he ought to be and that is his ultimate charm Deception Island rude impotent elitist poet whose personal life always seems to fall apart

Lustrates how Enderby the artist is the man who expresses for all men their unbuttoned true selves Ti. The first two books of the series are good Enderby is not a typical protagonist and he deals with issues humourous as it may be of dealing with stomach noises and catching fleeting thoughts to paper as after all it is the profession He is ageing he is awkward with people and for what it s worth for the first couple of books I enjoyed the poetry The last couple of books were garbage It was difficult to relate to Enderby he became obscene his poetry and Burgess s prose were incomprehensible The Enderby books are uncomfortable reads Funny at some parts and stretches your vocab I had to look up noumenon but really two were enough four beyond excess Unfortunately the latter books really took the shine off the former and I grew to loathe Enderby
